Business Supporters

Aspex exists to support emerging artists and make art accessible to all. It is an ethos we have been adhering to for nearly 40 years.

At our core is the belief that that everyone has the right to access the arts and  that this is important to our physical and emotional wellbeing.

Our reach at the gallery in Gunwharf Quays and off-site (through the use of our Mobile Learning Studio) encompasses all ages and socio-economic groups, thanks to our broad range of inclusive learning activities and varied exhibitions programme.

Current & Recent Supporters

 

2019 | A shared vision, bringing creative experiences to the masses

Since moving to Gunwharf Quays in 2006 Aspex has presented an exciting programme of off-site activity. Following a capital project in 2016 this programme became even more ambitious with the development of the Aspex Mobile Learning Studio.

In summer 2019 this went one step further, following a partnership with Victorious Festival - the South Coast’s biggest festival event which takes place over three days every August.

Working with Supporters, Aspex delivered a diverse programme of exhibitions, events and workshops which engaged over 840,000 people. Activities were also hosted for people with visual impairments, as well as children from refugee and asylum seeker families, young carers and children in care.

Many of these activities also took part at Supporter venues. Watch the clip below to discover more:

 

 

 

2018 | Working together to encourage audiences to invent, make & create

Launched in 2018, The Inventors was a diverse programme of exhibitions, events and workshops for people of all ages and abilities. Three artists were commissioned to act as inventors, collaborating with the people of Portsmouth to explore new ways of making and constructing.

This theme was very much in-line with the ethos of Conquest Fine Bespoke Furniture who have been been designing and handcrafting fine fitted furniture in Hampshire for over fifty years. Conquest supported the artists, including furniture and product-designer Fern Toynton, resulting in the presentation of artwork offsite throughout the city and at Aspex.
