Arts Catalyst is one of the UK's most distinctive arts organisations, distinguished by ambitious art commissions and its unique take on art-science practice. Our primary focus is commissioning new artists' projects, presented in a range of museums, art galleries and other public spaces in the UK and internationally. In its 22 years, Arts Catalyst has commissioned more than 135 artists’ projects, including major new works by Tomas Saraceno, Aleksandra Mir, Critical Art Ensemble, Jan Fabre, Yuri Leiderman, Stefan Gec, Otolith Group, Beatriz da Costa, Kira O’Reilly and Marko Peljhan, and has produced numerous exhibitions, events, performances and publications, collaborating with major arts, science and academic organisations.
Arts Catalyst plays a leading role in the development of artists’ engagement with science, and critical discourse around this field. Through our commissions, exhibitions and events, we enable people to have distinctive, thought-provoking experiences that transcend traditional boundaries of art and science.
In January 2016 Arts Catalyst opened its Centre for Art, Science and Technology in the King's Cross Area.
