SUBSIDIARY PROJECTS is an alternative to the standard gallery. Based on a domicile in Bonnington Square, the space was born with the aim to provide a physical and digital platform for emerging artists and curators to test new ideas.



SUBSIDIARY PROJECTS is explicitly not funded by any institution or external association, our aim is to remain independent and self-sufficient. As a non-profit organization, donations and contributions are extremely helpful to maintain our programme. 



Art practitioners are welcome to submit proposals responding to the area and the nature of the space.

Functioning essentially as a window display, Soft Opening offers artists a space in a neighbourhood associated with tourism, consumerism and commerce, where their work can engage with, situate itself within and confront this context from a self-aware and critical perspective.
