About: Banner Repeater is an Artist-led contemporary art space: a reading room, and experimental project space, founded by Ami Clarke in 2010.

 

The project is driven by its location, on Hackney Downs train station, platform 1, dedicated to developing critical art in the natural interstice the platform and incidental footfall of over 4,000 passengers a day provides.  This is achieved by rush-hour opening times that attract commuters, and an open door policy maintained 6 days a week. 

 

Banner Repeater works with artists to develop new works, through an ambitious exhibition programme installed in a highly visible and accessible project space, with a programme of events, talks, and performances, to introduce discussion and encourage debate of key issues in art today.

 

The reading room holds a permanently sited public archive of Artists’ Publishing, that provides an important bibliographic resource that all visitors to BR can browse, alongside a digital archive of Artists’ Publishing; an interactive user-driven database that constitutes a working research model - a tool as well as an electronic commons for the exchange of detailed information.

 

Banner Repeater is supported by Arts Council England, The Elephant Trust, The British Council, Chelsea Arts Club Trust, Del Chopo Museum, Mexico City and The Italian Institute of Culture, London.  BR was initially supported by a grant from the Empty Shop Fund, Arts in Empty Spaces, Hackney Council.
