- About -
Tintype is an established contemporary art space with a reputation for artistic innovation and integrity. It has a proven track record of supporting the work of UK based and international artists through a programme that is led by artists’ practices. Talks, performance events, breakfasts, workshops, and walks, are a regular feature of the gallery program, all open-access and free. Tintype has a history of presenting exhibitions and organising events that have a strong element of pubic engagement. Initiatives that began as an experiment have become part of the gallery’s ongoing program.…
Tintype has developed the Essex Road project, an annual commission for eight moving-image artists to make short films that are a response to the mile-long street on which the gallery is based. The films are back-projected into the gallery window so it becomes a public screen. In August, when the gallery is closed, an artist is invited to use the gallery’s large glass window to install a work. We try to offer a project space to an artist once a year and are currently developing this as an external project.
