Measure is a non-profit arts commissioning organisation that aims to inspire a passion for art, architecture and history and was founded by Simon Day and Jon Scott in 2000.
Through our collaborative commissions we encourage artists to challenge their own practice and evolve new ways of working.
Our main aim is to create a truly inventive and atmospheric experience. Installing our exhibitions in old dis-used buildings and spaces, we offer the visitor a glimpse into the past. In using these forgotten places, the relationship between the artists’ work and space becomes of primary importance.
Measure collaborate with partner organisations for each project to research the history of each building and produce a range of outreach actvities to local schools and community groups. Partnerships with organisations such as English Heritage, Museum of London, The London Transport Museum and Camden Council help our projects reach broad audiences, enabling them to explore new ways of experiencing and engaging with art.
