Grantee profile


Founded in 1985 by Roger Took, ArtAngel is a London-based organisation that commissions and produces site-specific works and media projects. Appearing anywhere from quarries to power stations, high streets and railway stations, on daytime TV and in the sky at night, Artangel produces art that transforms unusual spaces, takes surprising new forms and offers absorbing experiences for audiences. In 2011, the Artangel Collection was launched in partnership with Tate to enable notable film and video installations commissioned by Artangel to be made easily available, free of charge, to publicly funded museums and galleries across the UK.
