In April 2012 Assemblage opened the Assemblage Studios which provides shared or private studio spaces for artists to rent, as well as a workshop space and a printmaking studio. The centre functions as a meeting place for all of Assemblage’s projects and activities, including workshops, peer mentoring, exhibitions, art talks, open studio events and an international residency programme.
Assemblage encourages the artists within the Assemblage Studios to pursue art making as a full-time career thereby cultivating entrepreneurs and employment, which is imperative in the South African context. The broader Johannesburg visual arts community, as well as the general public have access to the space through regular art events including exhibitions, open studio events and art talks. It is a physical hub for activity, creation and discourse.
We are very grateful to all those who have helped us by giving donations of every kind, including furniture, books and resources.
We are always looking for ways to help the artists working with us and your generousity helps us do this.
Assemblage Studios are open to visitors. We however ask that you make an appointment with either an artist or the studio staff before you visit.
Visiting hours: Mon - Fri 09:00 - 17:00 or by appointment: email firstname.lastname@example.org
