Satellite Art Projects was a non-profit contemporary art agency created to initiate, develop and present ambitious public projects and commissions. Established by Simon Maidment, the organisation presented projects between 2008 and 2013.
The organisation was established to work closely with artists beyond the gallery environment, focussing on practices – across artistic disciplines – that engage with, respond to, and catalyze, their specific context or place.
Satellite Art Projects advocated the importance of critically engaged-contemporary practice and concerns to corporate, private and government bodies undertaking art commissioning and policy, to emphasise the nuance, awe, excitement and intelligence that such works can embody.
Above all Satellite sought to be generative – new works, new discussions, new audiences.
