Broadway projects trust ( the "projects" ) is a registered charity whose objectives are to support, show and commission new art which has not been seen in the UK. Alongside an exhibition programme the "projects" will provide an educational programme which will engage in an international dialogue through an artists' exchange programme whilst working directly with the local community.
This non-profit venture will facilitate the conception and development of artistic projects that would not ordinarily be possible under the constraints of a commercial gallery or a public Museum .
The projects will launch on October 19th 2000 at the recently converted ex Conservative Party Constitutional Club in Fulham's Shorrolds Road. The now lofty , minimal interiors are a result of the approach to architecture of the owners, and sponsors of the projects. Securing a space for the "projects" took years to negotiate with the Fulham & Hammersmith local authority. Unique in that it is part residential and part community it offers an inspiring example for the possibilities for art spaces around the world.
Vanessa Beecroft - On October 19th beecroft will launch the projects with a collection of some 280 previously unseen drawings. Offering a deep insight into beecroft's working practice the drawings , seen together , highlight the techniques and methods she uses to navigate perceived anxieties regarding body aesthetic.
