OUR LOCATION

The Line London 001 1 1

THE LINE Contemporary Art Space

The Forge building was part of the Victorian iron shipbuilding industry. The imaginative conversion where Craft Central is located, places a free standing birch wood construction within the listed walls. Although some alterations have been made to the structure, much of this exciting building remains intact. The solution is a virtually free standing two storey birch wood construction in two sections running either side of the central listed pillars. This design provides selfcontained studios with a full height exhibition space at the front of the building and bleacher seats as a striking and usable feature which clear the overhead cranes.

The Craft Central is a gallery space daily used to have craftspeople around who want somewhere to work occasionally rather than commit to a full-time studio and who contribute to the art community in The City. The large exhibition space/gallery at the front of the building is 1,000 sqft, excluding the bleacher seats. It is an exhilarating space. You’ll find huge feature windows, exposed brickwork, eight former furnace chimney breasts, old gantries, ironwork and industrial fittings – even two overhead cranes (in full working order!). Craft Central is located in a largely residential area, close to the river and within easy access of the business districts of Canary Wharf and Surrey Quays. Only four stops from Canary Wharf and the Jubilee line (Crossrail station in 2018) two stops from Greenwich.

İrem Çoban, Turkey
“It is a really successful and well-organized event. Thank you for preparing the exhibition in an accessible way during the pandemic period we are in. I wish I could come to Venice and see the exhibition and my work in person. But unfortunately, I could not come because of Covid-19. I’m looking forward to continuing our cooperation in the future (without Covid-19).”

Katrin Schöß, Germany
“I like the open-minded and international approach to art. The name ITSLIQUID is truly programmatic. Instead of a detached art world, you offer a flowing system of events, and instead of just waiting for the virus to disappear, you find new ways to keep everything moving, developing, growing! I think that’s absolutely fabulous! It sets a great example of how the current crisis that has stopped the art world in its tracks can be dealt with in a very creative and inspiring way!”

Aleksandra Ciazynska, Poland
“The organization is great. Many wonderful people are involved in the project, they are always helpful. The place of the exhibition is also magical. Picturesque Venice – a city full of wonderful buildings, a city of artists that I have always wanted to visit. The palace dated back to the 16th century and the works of contemporary artists – here, the history meets the present. It is a wonderful feeling when your paintings are part of this great exhibition.”
