Research Space

The Research Space was launched on July 1st 2007 and utilised a studio space within the Egerton Studio – part of the Oldknows Complex.

This research space was a flexible art space to be used by selected artists as they wished for a period of one calendar month.

The Egerton Studio was effectively evicted by a forced rent rise by Landlord in 2008.

GF is currently actively seeking new and more fluid spaces to utilise…we will keep you posted…

Goldfactory Research Space

The notion of the project space developed out of earlier aspirations for Goldfactory both an artistic resource and a promotional tool and as a catalyst for new developments in art and art-presentation.

A research space is not a gallery nor is it a studio. The short residency within the space enables new ideas to develop without the clutter and baggage that a permanent studio might engender. Nor does the space bring with it the pressures of a public exhibition space where a finished product is presented to the public. The research space seeks to present art as an ongoing process. As an exploration not as a finished product that provides all the answers. It changes the way art is consumed without being enfeebled by the market place.
