Established in 1994, Gasworks is a contemporary art organization based in South London, UK, housing twelve artists' studios and offering a program of exhibitions and events, artists’ residencies, international fellowships and educational projects. Seven studios are rented to London-based artists and four are reserved for the International Residency Program for non-UK based artists.

The exhibition space accommodates four main projects a year, as well as a series of small-scale events. The program includes solo and thematic exhibitions, screenings, workshops and seminars. Gasworks focuses on visual arts practice in its broadest sense, including design, documentary filmmaking and media art, amongst other areas of activity. These are all linked by a commitment to constantly reassess the position of artists within their wider cultural, social and political frameworks.

The residencies and exhibitions programs occasionally cooperate, often to facilitate research and production for international artists invited to develop a project for the exhibitions and events program.

Gasworks is part of Triangle Network, an international network of artists and organizations set up in 1982 whose activities include residencies and workshops. Triangle provides Gasworks with unique connections to artists and organizations in more than thirty countries around the world.
