Johannesburg, 23 Voorhout Street (cnr 4th Street), New Dornfontein

ROOM is an independent multi-disciplinary gallery including a project based space and residency focused on collaboration, interdisciplinary dialogue and exchange, with monthly artistic programming.

ROOM with its activities aims to be a part of an interrogative, critical and constructive urban terrain, which in turn informs its visual sensibility, creative programming and values. Our focus is to work with discourses centred along the global South axis and its Diasporas.

ROOM is a context, which increases awareness of the multitude of creative production, through the projects it engages with and to take full advantage of the ever-increasing number of platforms in the public domain.

ROOM was developed so as to provide platforms to young, mid-career and established artists to showcase their work. The curatorial approach of our activities is focused on presenting programming which acts as a catalyst for discussions, under the banners of the Carpet Series - an informal context which examines the thematics that each of the artists addresses over and above their respective visual presentation at ROOM.

The programming consists of film screenings, talks, happenings, dinners, gigs, performances and dinners hosted by ROOM and artists we engage with.
