International Project Space (IPS) is a non-profit contemporary arts organization situated on the Bournville campus of the Birmingham Institute of Art and Design. Since its founding, IPS has established a reputation for presenting a challenging and experimental program of exhibitions, events, and new commissions with both emerging and established artists, providing many with their first opportunity to present a solo project in the UK. Drawing on its pedagogical context, IPS is committed to providing a space for experimentation and discussion, opening up the exhibition space to alternative modes of working and production.

IPS currently produces up to six solo and group exhibitions a year. As well as regular talks and events, new programs running alongside main exhibitions include an ongoing series of displays entitled “The Reading Room” hosting both artist and curatorial projects which interrogate the ways in which knowledge is produced and made public through experimental forms of writing and distribution. We are also developing a series of long-term, research-based collaborations with artists and other practitioners, the first with artist Cally Spooner, who will present research over a period of eight months across various platforms within the organization. IPS will also be developing its online presence, commissioning works and projects to be presented exclusively on our website.
