About Random Artists

Random Artists is a collective, based in London, which has been putting on open access exhibitions in squatted venues for the last 5 years. Tackling at a grass roots level, the need for creative input and the understanding of autonomous responsibility when interacting with our surroundings.

This care-in-the-community arts group, are exploring the link between the scientific and the artistic, playing on the edge of natural and technological. Operating a cultural experiment of open-access shows, free to exhibit and free to enter, these spaces of reclaimed freedom have been making a significant contribution to an alternative art world.

The general ethos of our shows is to re-use the so-called 'waste' of modern urban society, encouraging others to be proactive toward our environment. Recycling the unwanted and rejected materials. Using abandoned properties which we repair and maintain, we create living and working facilities, reclaiming space that has no other immediate purpose. These are used, respectfully and intelligently, for genuine community development, creating fields of opportunity for a future at no cost or harm to anyone else.

With the organising of peer lead community art events we have managed to encourage 100's of artists, musicians, writers and performers, who otherwise would have no outlet, to display their work in a peer environment. Providing a platform for free development, and through self-involvement and skillsharing workshops, people have made a difference to their lives.

The exhibitions have been a successful example of autonomous freedom. They have been a birth place for emerging talents, and have created the room for confidence and inspiration to grow. We bring together anyone open to shared spaces and free regulation, facilitate the building of social networks, allowing people to express themselves and communicate on more levels than the basics of language. A collaboration of ideas united around artistic proposals and concepts. giving everyone a chance to bring what they have to offer and share it on equal grounds with everyone around them. Making art into life and life into fun.
