S1 Artspace is an artist-led organisation presenting an annual programme of contemporary exhibitions, commissions, screenings and events. S1 also provides studio space for contemporary artists at varying stages in their careers, from recent graduates to established artists working at an international level.
Founded in 1995 by a group of Sheffield-based artists seeking to create a sustainable studio environment in Sheffield City Centre, S1 Artspace has become a nationally recognised organisation, renowned for providing a platform for experimentation and for supporting the development of new work in a wide variety of media through artists’ residencies, commissions, and an annual studio holders’ exhibition. Over its sixteen year history, S1 Artspace has presented work by over 300 artists and accommodated over 100 artists.
In 2010, S1 Artspace moved to new larger premises to support a growing commitment to its international exhibition programme.
