Offsite includes commissions, collaborations, residencies and touring programmes all taking place outside the gallery. The core focus is on commissioning artists who have specific interests in collaboration and direct engagement with social and cultural contexts. The format aims to facilitate multi-platform outcomes, from site-specific and live events to online platforms; involving local to international partnerships, both intergenerational and interdisciplinary, and provoking unexpected outcomes. Offsite extends the gallery’s audience reach and opens up the gallery and its activities.
Recent projects include the Chisenhale Gallery Create Residency(November 2012-August 2014) with Edward Thomasson and the Chisenhale Gallery Victoria Park Residency (November 2013 - August 2014) with Cathy Haynes in partnership with Tower Hamlets Parks and Open Spaces Department. The Chisenhale Gallery Create Residency 2014-16 and Chisenhale Gallery Victoria Park Residency 2014-15 artists will be announced in the Autumn.
