About Us

Banner Repeater is an artist-led org: experimental project space / reading room with a public Archive of Artists’ Publishing and Artists Book shop, founded by Ami Clarke in 2010.

The project is driven by its location, on Hackney Downs train station, platform 1, dedicated to developing critical art in the natural interstice the platform and incidental footfall of over 11,000 passengers a day provides.

Banner Repeater works with artists to develop new works, through an ambitious exhibition programme installed in a highly visible and accessible project space, with a programme of events, talks, and performances, to introduce discussion and encourage debate of key issues in art today.

The reading room holds a permanently sited public archive of Artists’ Publishing that provides an important bibliographic resource that all visitors to BR can browse, alongside a digital archive of Artists’ Publishing in development with Wikimedia UK.

Banner Repeater has been supported by Arts Council England, The Elephant Trust, The British Council, the Goethe Institut London, Chelsea Arts Club Trust, Del Chopo Museum, Mexico City and The Italian Institute of Culture, London.  BR was initially supported by a grant from the Empty Shop Fund, Arts in Empty Spaces, Hackney Council.
