An artist-run space is a gallery space run by artists, thus circumventing the structures of public and private galleries. Artist-run spaces have become realised as an important factor in urban regeneration. This effect was particularly strong in Glasgow, where the city won the accolade 'European Capital of Culture' in 1990, largely due to the large number of artist-run exhibition spaces and galleries.[1] Curator Hans Ulrich Obrist coined the term "The Glasgow Miracle" to describe this. Examples of artist-run spaces include City Racing, BANK, studio1.1, [2] Studio Voltaire, Cubitt and Auto Italia South East in London, Milwaukee's BATHAS Internationale...

3 137, artist run space is pleased to invite you to its first group exhibition in London, at Sluice Art Fair 2013. 3 137 presents a group exhibition on a surface parallel to the ground. “Desk Issues” is a small scale exhibition on a table. The project includes artist books and a few industrial design objects that could possibly be found on a table. 

The artists of the exhibition were asked to create a book that describes activities developing on or around a table or a desk. Our interest focuses on the table as an object or a space that gathers personal stories. We made a collection of objects as someone would do on his desk. A personal “notebook” or an “album” that one has curated on his table. A hidden scenario in book pages, a parallel story to real time. You are welcome to discover and browse it.
