Centre for New Culture

Centre For New Culture


We are collaborating with emerging and global contemporary artists to reveal new art forms in unexpected spaces.

Thin Air's opening chapter is a transformative journey through the post-industrial spaces of the Beams, London’s Centre for New Culture in the Royal Docks. Over 55,000 square feet of interconnecting environments, we explore the boundaries between art and technology, working with light, atmospherics, sound, and experimental digital media.

The first act opens with work by international contemporary artists including, James Clar, Robert Henke, Kimchi and Chips with Rosa Menkman, Matthew Schreiber, S E T U P and UCLA Arts Conditional Studio.
