#SupportBeaconsfield is a stepping-stone in our history as this autonomous art space enters its 20th year. After two decades as a fixed-term client of Arts Council England, Beaconsfield Gallery Vauxhall (BGV) is going it alone.

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

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

The organisation’s function as a primary research vehicle is international and particularly notable for pioneering developments in time-based, political and sound art as well as curatorial practice.We need to raise £250,000 per annum to realise BGV’s full potential as a self-sufficient, critically engaged locus operating beyond the mainstream.

We already rely upon your moral support and now 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 adjust their perspective

– continuously expand the critical context within which art is interpreted



– £100 will open the doors for an evening event

– £500 will cover the cost of presentation materials for one exhibition

– £5000 will allow a new art commission

– £250,000 will cover venue running costs for one year

– £1,000,000 will keep Beaconsfield open to the public for four years


However large or small, your donation will make a big difference to BGV’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.
