CHEMIST is a new South-London based artist-run gallery dedicated to poetic, speculative and collaborative art practices through exhibitions, workshops, sound performances and screenings. Set-up by Kineret Lourie and Ariel Caine and located in an ex-chemist's shop on Lewisham Way, we envision CHEMIST both as a gallery space and a hub. Our motivation is to create a generative space that enables artists and cultural practitioners to realize complex and experimental exhibitions while also using the gallery space as a place through which to generate a forum around common matters of practice and politics.

We invite artists with a strong critical and or socio-political motivation to their practice and together with them work towards realizing new stages of work. Our program alternates between exhibitions and events that will allow for both long term project development alongside faster, more agile and heterogeneous sets of interactions in the space. We are working towards having six exhibitions in 2023, each spanning 5 weeks on average. All exhibitions will feature new work, developed with our close consultation and support.
