Gallery/Dealer Details - L-13 Light Industrial Workshop
The L-13 Light Industrial Workshop and Private Ladies and Gentlemen's Club for Art, Leisure and the Disruptive Betterment of Culture is an independent contemporary art space based in Clerkenwell, London.
The L-13 gallery/studio /design company/small press and private club reinvigorates and subverts pre-conceived ways in which art is considered and produced, blurring the distinctions between art production and exhibition.
L-13 not only represents but also works in close and long-term collaboration with an distinct group of artists who, through multifaceted creative practices, share a fondness for candid social criticism and a betrothed, playful approach to the serious process of making art.
Its name, and the aspect of faded Victorian distinction that permeates L-13, is emblematic of a decision to bring creativity, wit and engagement to the exhibition space itself. Hereditary of a radical utopian ethos, L-13 owes much to a spirit of collaboration, confrontation and ecstatic experience that is more dependent on an anti-art tradition rather than that of fine art. And, without pandering to either popularist or elitist strategies, L-13 enables the publishing, production and exhibition of its own artists whilst seeking the critical dialogue and involvement of other like-minded artists, institutions, and commentators.
