Centrespace at the Visual Research Centre



The VRC runs a high profile public programme of events and exhibitions, bringing research proposals and outcomes into the public domain. The main setting for this is Centrespace - a large, adaptable studio/gallery space that spans both floors of the VRC.

This flexible space can be employed in a multitude of ways from testing and exploring working practices, conducting seminars, to staging innovative exhibitions and events.

With up-to-date audiovisual equipment, multi-screen digital projections can be shown along side more traditional installations.

Previous international exhibitions include the UK premiere of Nigel Johnson's acclaimed Firefly; the realisation of de Moll & Delbrügge web-based How do you feel? and Tik Tak Tok - a collaborative project with Skopje Museum of Contemporary Art, and Duncan of Jordanstone College of Art and Design.

In 2003 Centrespace presented Breathing Space, an exhibition which was part of a programme of events celebrating the opening of Frank Gehry's first building in the UK: Maggie's Cancer Caring Centre, Dundee.
