25 YEARS OF WESTLAND PLACE STUDIOS OPEN WEEKEND
Press Release
In 1993 when Westland Place Studios opened its doors just a stone’s throw from Old St. Roundabout there were said to
be more artists per square foot and more artists studios in the area than anywhere else in Europe. The presence of these
artists helped rejuvenate what was then a run down, semi derelict backwater of the city and in doing so they laid the
foundations for the extraordinary transformation that followed.
25 years later the streets surrounding what is now known as “Silicon Roundabout” have changed beyond recognition.
The artists who were instrumental in reviving the area have all but gone, forced out by ever-increasing rents.
Against all the odds Westland Place Studios has managed to weather the storm of development and on the first weekend
in November will celebrate its 25th anniversary. To mark this event and acknowledge its achievements the artists will be
opening their doors and inviting the public into their studios.
Housed in the evocative spaces of an old tobacco pipe warehouse Westland Place Studios are home to an eclectic mix
of established and internationally renowned Painters, Photographers, Sculptors, Printmakers, Filmmakers, Ceramists,
Illustrators and Designers. In the past year their work has been exhibited in Venice, New York, Berlin, Paris, Tallinn,
Brussels,Turin, Beijing. Lima Hong Kong and of course London.
