The Muse  Gallery & Studio has been a home for IMA Studio in London since 2018. Eastablished in 2003, The Muse is a contemporary gallery with an innovative structure that allows for the support of emerging artists; offering artists a zero-cost residency programme in the gallery with two zero commission shows in the heart of London's West End.

It is a truly unique space in the art world that IMA is proud to be supported by The Muse.

Every Summer, IMA takes over The Muse to conduct various projects on site.

" The Muse: Throughout the year, we also open our doors to community arts projects, musicians, film makers and live performers to fill the calendar with events from 'Sound art’ to ‘Cult film’ evenings and associated seminars." 

Each of our projects is an exploration of a problem that artists face. We work alongside artists with support from those in the industry who also see the need for a change.


With each project we are aiming for a radical departure from the current status quo.

If artists were able to design their arts education, what would they hunger to learn? If institutes came without prestige, where would be the best places to learn art? What are working artists' ongoing difficulties, and how can we tackle these in ways that haven't been done before?

Artists at



'Artists At Work' is a project that combines the concept of an open studio and an art exhibition

Artists on the programme are encouraged to use the space to explore and exercise the possibilities of their work, to get their work out of their studio into a blank walled gallery and see how their work sits with other artists work, and against itself.


Each artist receives a dedicated area where they can explore their work in situ, and are encouraged to change their work throughout the event - exploring different aspects of curation and showcasing different pieces of work during the run of the event.


As part of the programme, we invite industry professionals to the space for group discussions and one-to-one sessions throughout the event, focusing on topics that surround the artists' practice. 

01 - 24 August 2018

The Programme's Opening Hours were:

Tuesday to Sunday 12pm - 6pm.

The public were welcome in the space to view the work when no group discussion or meetings were being conducted.

Address: 269 Portobello Rd, London W11 1LR
