On March 4th 2005 we opened our doors for the private view of an exhibition by Gary Woodley. It was our first show and we are now 10 years old!

Thank you to everyone who has visited, exhibited, performed or worked at CHELSEA space, we are truly grateful for your support. We have so far made 58 shows (not to mention the events, performances and talks) and between 2006 and 2013 we also made 30 exhibitions at our sister gallery, Chelsea Futurespace.  Below are a few images from the last decade, the full Exhibition Archive can be seen here.

We are truly privileged to still be here, We look forward to seeing you for the private view of show # 59, Ken Cox: Poetry Machines at 6pm on Tuesday 28th April and finally we would like to pay tribute to absent friends.
