Since 1994 Beaconsfield has been a laboratory dedicated to the exploration and evolution of experimental art. An uncompromising space where open-minded artists and audiences come to challenge themselves and their understanding of what art can be. A supportive space for taking risks and exploring new ideas. A liberating space where people come together and ask themselves “What if?”.
Over the years the results of our experiments have surprised, shocked, delighted, inspired, disgusted, amused, terrified and mystified those who have encountered them.
We are based in the remaining wing of the historic Lambeth Ragged Schools that we offer as a resource for artists and audiences to experience high quality (‘beacon’), challenging, new art works in a wide range (‘field’) of contemporary visual art media, through commissions, group exhibitions, performances, publications and cultural events that contribute to the public understanding of key debates and developments in contemporary art and culture.
