THOSE THAT FIGHT - THOSE THAT PRAY - THOSE THAT WORK
The L-13 Light Industrial Workshop and Private Ladies and Gentlemen's Club for Art, Leisure and the Disruptive Betterment of Culture is an independent contemporary art space in Clerkenwell, London.
L-13 seeks to reinvigorate and subvert pre-conceived ways in which art is considered and produced, blurring the distinctions between art production and exhibition.
We not only represent, but also works in close and long-term collaboration with an distinct group of artists who, through multifaceted creative practices, share a fondness for candid social criticism and a betrothed, playful approach to the serious process of making art.
Emblematic of a decision to bring creativity, wit and engagement to the exhibition space itself, and hereditary of a radical utopian ethos, L-13 owes much to a spirit of collaboration, confrontation and ecstatic experience that is more dependent on an anti-art tradition rather than that of fine art. Without pandering to either popularist or elitist strategies, L-13 enables the publishing, production and exhibition of its own artists whilst seeking the critical dialogue and involvement of other like-minded artists, institutions, and commentators.
