About Space in Between:
Space in Between (SIB) is a London-based contemporary art gallery with a focus on commissioning and exhibiting work from important early career artists. Founded in 2009 as a project space, which created a platform for experimentation and emerging talent, SIB now represents a stable of ten artists. Continuing to foster the development of artistic practice, SIB has created an organisational model that sits between that of a commercial gallery and a commissioning space – running a full programme of solo and group shows, as well commissioning large off-site exhibitions, publications, films and performances. The gallery has forged a strong identity in the sector, and a reputation for exhibiting critically engaging artwork; encouraging a discourse and way of working that benefits the development of artists and audiences alike.


About Hi Barbara:
Hi Barbara is an evolving project to explore the potential of collaboration and collective practice in curatorial and visual art production between Helen Nisbet and Kay Watson.
