EXLAB  -  325 OLD ST / LONDON / EC1

An experimental art lab curated by Outside the Zone. The space exists as a visionary project aimed to support emerging artists with a multidisciplinary approach to their practise.

EXLAB focuses on independent curatorial projects. Exploring art from with a fresh fluidity whilst engaging with a mass audience.

The modernist void will constantly transform with a progressive pool of curatoral collaborators.  Artists  expand beyond the EXLAB to other OTZ sites.

Artworks can be viewed daily without borders creating a unique public art experience.

EXLAB continues OTZ’S ethos to re-purpose and transform unused spaces into functional art environments. Exploring deeper into how public art shapes cities and constantly shifting the realm between art and technology.

 

PROGRAM

Lowe H Seger | Obsolete dreams | July 2021

 Film installation with prints

A conceptual window installation at EXLAB, a piece based on my values in life, all rooted in personal experiences. Using the human body for an inspirational expression of the artists mindset.

 

Physically Digital

A four-week exploration of the digital in a physical setting, During the several lockdowns we have gone through, we have been invited to experience art that was meant to be delivered physically in the digital landscape. It has pushed emerging artists to shift their studios into their laptops. The lockdown has questions how we use our body especially as artists.. Exlab is a space that allows us to reconsider the screen as a space, the browser as a material and the user as a viewer.
