VSSL studio is a container for queer curatorial practices.
VSSL studio is an artists’ studio, project and not-for-profit exhibition space located in Deptford (South East London).
VSSL is a place of gathering, a site for artistic production and engagement, dedicated to the holding and nurturing of time-based practices and their satellites. We are a queer-led organisation, and we centre queer and trans* artists in our work.
Alongside our permanent group of studio artists, VSSL is a residency site and venue, and hosts a regular public programme of curatorial and guest projects .
The studio was established in 2020 by co-directors Benjamin Sebastian and Joseph Morgan Schofield, and activated in 2021 with our first public offerings: Gathering in a Time of Plague, a curatorial programme, and The Sunday Skool, an online artist development programme.
We intend that VSSL becomes a place of gathering - a place where our communities can meet and grow. Please be in touch with questions, invitations and collaborative possibilities.
Working with VSSLOur funded opportunities are programmed through invitation and open call.
We also welcome proposals for short-term us of VSSL as a project or residency space, a gallery or exhibition venue, a studio or rehearsal room - more info.
