Beaconsfield Gallery Vauxhall in London has provided a laboratory and presentation space for contemporary art and artists since 1995 supported, until recently, by regular public funding. Beaconsfield’s reputation rests on the staging of an international programme of commissions (beacons) in a range of art mediums (field) through exhibitions, residencies, talks and events. The recent arrival of Damien Hirst’s museum (the Newport Street Gallery) in one of the neighbouring buildings, is a promising development for the transformation of the area into an upcoming arts district.
