Founded as a charity by artists in 1994 with the desire to fill a niche between the institution, the commercial and ‘alternative’, Beaconsfield remains a unique, non-profit, artist-led entity, placing equal emphasis on audiences and artists.

Beaconsfield’s reputation rests on the staging of an influential programme of exhibitions, residencies and discursive events with commissions (beacons) in a range of art mediums (field).

The organisation’s function as a primary research vehicle has  international reach and is particularly notable for pioneering developments in time-based and sound art as well as curatorial practice: a critically engaged locus operating beyond the mainstream.

We already rely upon your moral support, but also need your practical support to stay active and open with free admission.


– stay active and open with free admission to the public

– continue to support and stimulate the artists we commission

– keep delivering art in original ways

– sustain a reflective space where people can adjust their perspective

– continue expanding the critical context within which art is interpreted.


– £100 will open the doors and kick-start an evening event

– £500 will cover the cost of an artist’s materials for one exhibition

– £5000 will allow a new art commission, including an artist fee at industry rates

– £85,000 will cover venue running costs for one year.

However large or small, your donation will make a huge impact on Beaconsfield’s survival as a unique artists’ project. We value each contribution that directly enables the commissioning of emergent and established artists. Together we can secure the gallery’s future as a truly independent, streamlined resource for the development and presentation of contemporary art.A a critically engaged locus operating beyond the mainstream.
