Cob Studios was established in 2011 by gallerist Victoria Williams and playwright Polly Stenham. Initially conceived as an artistic project space, Cob Studios was occupied by writers, curators, designers and fine artists.
In 2016 Williams alongside curator Cassie Beadle, launched the full Cob Gallery programme that supports and represents new, emerging and mid career London-based talent in the visual arts.
Cob Gallery focusses their program on multi discipline, London based and emerging artistic talent. Continuing the original conception as an artist led project space, the gallery maintains a culture of close collaboration and mutual support between makers and curators, offering an inclusive and nourishing platform. Presenting a blend of debut, solo and collaborative exhibitions, the gallery hosts a diverse, provocative and distinctive programme of artistic activity.
Curatorial collaborations have include James Putnam, Alix Janta-Polczynski and Lauren Jones (Alteria Art/ Art Barter), Antonia Marsh (Soft Opening), Roxie Warder (Saatchi Gallery) and Natasha Hoare (Goldsmiths Center for Contemporary Art), Jessica Draper and Mia Pfeifer.
Cob Gallery represents artists including Faye Wei Wei, Cat Roissetter, Alba Hodsoll, Nina Mae Fowler, Joe Sweeney, and Jason Shulman.
