Gallery & Project space
Founded in 2013, Interview Room 11 is an artist run gallery and project space. Previously located in Argyle House as a part of the FC+ Studios, we have now moved to occupy space in Ocean Terminal, taking on the challenge of a very different context. The gallery project is run by a committee consisting of artists and curators, all interested in providing a platform for emerging and early career local and international artists who require a sizeable space in which to show their work and develop their ideas, and who in some way wish to experiment and push the boundaries of their chosen practice. The gallery team are involved in all aspects of facilitating the space, including producing and reviewing open submission calls, installations, marketing, e-store and publishing.
Our programme consists of a mix of committee run projects, solo and group exhibitions and select invited curatorial projects. We are interested in experimenting with exhibition/gallery models and curating in an expanded field of theory and practice within a contemporary context. We seek to collaborate with the exhibiting artists on curatorial projects, and to support the existing artist community in Edinburgh. As an artist led gallery and resource space we want to establish and maintain dialogues with similar arts spaces, and welcome contacts from artist run initiatives around Europe and beyond who share our interests.
