Co-founded by Jonathon Carroll and Steve Fletcher, Carroll / Fletcher supports existing and new forms of artistic production. The gallery works with exceptional emerging and established artists, whose practices use a diverse range of media to explore contemporary socio-political, cultural, scientific and technological themes.
The gallery presents retrospectives as well as shows focused on a particular aspect of an artist's practice and new commissions. Since opening in 2012, the gallery has presented first UK solo exhibitions of artists including John Akomfrah, Eva and Franco Mattes, Natascha Sadr Haghighian, Manfred Mohr and Mishka Henner. Each exhibition offers alternative frameworks for understanding, interpreting and contextualising an artist's work. This includes exhibition publications with commissioned essays, and talks, panel discussions, performances, screenings and other events.
Carroll / Fletcher showcases developments in visual culture by commissioning and exhibiting ambitious new works. It collaborates with museums and other non-commercial institutions to develop interest in, and long-term critical appreciation of the work of its artists. The gallery also presents curated group shows, occasional location specific works and collaborative education projects.
Carroll / Fletcher Project Space, situated on Riding House Street, focuses on encouraging peer-to-peer collaborations with artists, curators and galleries worldwide.
As part of our digital presence, Carroll / Fletcher Onscreen is an online cinema showing dynamic curated weekly screenings of experimental and artists' film, scheduled to complement the gallery's programme.
