Proposal No. 24

James & Jones propose to turn the Arnolfini Gallery on its head. Art Galleries have to be inclusive and be open to all, including families, resulting in specific areas being designed for families, especially young.

James & Jones will turn the gallery spaces of the Arnolfini into a crèche for a day and the workshops, studios and family areas into the art gallery. Soft furnishing, baby facilities etc will be placed in art spaces, allowing for these activities to be at the fore front of the art experience. The office spaces will also be open to the public to venture in and office staff will work in the non-spaces of the gallery such as the stairwells and underused areas.
