Leading international artists including Nairy Baghramian, Alexandra Bircken, Monster Chetwynd, Nicole Eisenman, Anthony Gormley, Judith Hopf, Anish Kapoor, Paulina Olowska and Caragh Thuring, have generously donated unique artworks to support Studio Voltaire’s forthcoming project. This year marks an important moment for Studio Voltaire as they continue to fundraise for The Studio Voltaire Capital Project. This transformative £2.4 million scheme will provide 42% more affordable artists’ studios, increase public spaces by 233%, establish a new dedicated Learning and Events Space, build two Artists’ Apartments and create a new public courtyard garden and café. Excitingly, they will also introduce the first–ever permanent House of Voltaire in Clapham.
Joe Scotland, Director of Studio Voltaire, says: “We are delighted to be offering a new House of Voltaire experience in Mayfair, ahead of our first–ever permanent store opening next year as part of The Studio Voltaire Capital Project. We are hugely indebted to the artists and designers who have worked so generously with us, raising much–needed funds for our important programmes. This year’s offering is truly special, with something for everyone.”
