Carter presents Studio 59
Carter Presents is an ongoing  curatorial project by artist Jamie Robinson  which launched  with its first exhibition “Pencil” in October 2005  in Hoxton London. Jamie Robinson studied painting at the RCA before setting up a studio in Brick Lane in the early 90s which housed at various times around a dozen artists in an old electricity substation of approximately 12,000 square feet. Artists who have worked there include Dinos and Jake Chapman, Nick Waplington, Melanie Manchot, Tom Gidley,  Sam Taylor Wood and  more.   Prior to setting up Carter Presents in a converted biscuit factory in Hoxton in 2005, Jamie Robinson curated  exhibitions in London including "Counter" 1999 at AVCO Bethnal Green and   "Domestocity " at Cell Projects  Hackney London" in 2003. Artists  were Lee Maelzer, keith Coventry, Franko B and Daniel Jackson.

Carter Presents offers an unprecedented chance for British artists/writers/theorists and the general public to exhibit and to view work  often  never seen and/or screened here before.  This is set within our overall curatorial policy of exhibiting and staging works by innovative and progressive artists.
