From December 2013, the walls will be divided in to ten sections. Eight artists will be permanently sharing the building space and eight of the wall spaces, eight artists permanently housed in the space and showing an evolving collection of work. The ninth & tenth spaces will feature work from guest artists. The guest spaces will be refreshed every two weeks (so we can carry on with our now established Cultivate tradition of introducing exciting artists to those who visit the space). We invite artists based in the London area to contact us with a view to taking a turn to occupy the guest spaces for a two week period.


'CULTIVATE EVOLVED - ART DOES NOT GO ON HOLIDAY - Next Two Weeks, 14th to 27th August'

art does not take a holiday Our guest wall for the next two weeks will feature art that excites us enough to make us want to hang it during this holiday month. Art Does Not Take A Holiday, we will not be stopping and Cultivate will be open (and especially open for all those people who come to London and Vyner Street during their holidays)


We invite artists (and anyone else) to send us postcards from their holidays - send postcards, sticks of rock and whatever you want to CULTIVATE, 49 Mowlem Street, London E2 3HE.

We invite artists not on holiday to come join us and submit work for the guest wall - more details via: - this will be an open call, open in terms of everything, no subject, no rules other than the rule that it has to excite us enough to make us want it on our walls for the next two weeks.

We shall not be on holiday, we shall be here working, painting, curating, doing things, getting on with art...

"Holidays are for wimps" (Louis Van Gaal)
