Spacex is a public-funded contemporary art space and registered educational charity. It works to encourage public engagement with the latest developments in contemporary art through commissioned projects, exhibitions, events, talks and activities for all ages. Spacex became a registered charity in the early 1990s and is now recognised by Arts Council England as one of the UK’s leading international contemporary art spaces. Spacex presents the work of emerging artists as well as those who are internationally renowned. Spacex has presented exhibitions at the last three Liverpool Biennials, including He Yun Chang.
Spacex was established in 1978, in a 19th century warehouse building between Exeter High Street and Quayside, extending the SPACE philosophy of artist-led studios and exhibitions initiatives for the first time beyond London. Supported by Arts Council England, Exeter City Council and Devon County Council.
Spacex is in Exeter city centre, just five minutes walk from the High Street.
It's open Tuesday–Saturday, 10am–5pm.
