Site Gallery

The Site Gallery is an art gallery in Sheffield, England. It specialises in multimedia based art.

The gallery is based at Brown Street in Sheffield's Cultural Industries Quarter. It is an international centre for contemporary art, and maintains an extensive programme of exhibitions, regularly hosting conferences, artists talks etc. The gallery also houses the Imaging Innovation Lab (iLab), a facility which provides a well-resourced production centre for still and moving image-making, which aims to foster the commissioning new work and providing a base for residencies.

The Site's two gallery spaces are used for exhibitions of contemporary visual art. These spaces are flexible in nature and can thus permit work to be shown not only in natural light, but also under various different artificial lighting conditions or even blacked out.

The gallery has hosted individual shows of high profile artists, including the first UK solo show of Sophie Calle. Other events have included exhibitions by Susan Hiller, Breda Beban, Mat Collishaw and George Chakravarthi, and Marie-Jo Lafontaine. Other UK premieres at The Site include those by Maria Marshall, Forced Entertainment, Annee Olofsson.

Off-site projects where new, commissioned work by Mark Wallinger, Brighid Lowe, Andrew Stones and Frances Hegarty, and Impossible Theatre were organized by The Site at Sheffield's Midland Station.

In 2003 The Site premiered 6 new commissions in the crossover area between performance, digital media and installation, "Shooting Live Artists", in association with the Arts Council of England and BTV festival.

All the gallery's exhibitions are free to enter and are contextualised with educational and/or practical events
