Auto Italia South East Auto Italia South East is an artist-run project and studio that commissions and produces new artwork – collaborating directly with emerging artists.

Throughout its history, Auto Italia’s work has taken many forms, ranging from collaborative public programming in temporary spaces, commissions and presentations in institutions and galleries, and the production of collaborative projects through working online. This work has been shown nationally and internationally at Tate Modern and Institute of Contemporary Arts in London; KW Institute for Contemporary Art and abc – art berlin contemporary in Berlin; Artissima LIDO in Turin; Hessel Museum in New York; Künstlerhaus Bremen and Firstdraft in Sydney amongst others.Auto Italia South EastAuto Italia was founded by artists Kate Cooper, Amanda Dennis and Rachel Pimm in a squatted car garage named ‘auto-italia south east’ in Peckham, South London.Throughout the history of the organisation, Auto Italia’s programming has questioned how artists can work together to develop new formats for artistic production. This has been explored under a number of guises, with artists at the heart of the organisation exploring the project as an artist, an organisation, a collaboration, a community and a space. This has been developed by an evolving group of collaborating artists. Alumni include Marleen Boschen (2014-16), Amanda Dennis (founding member 2007-2012), Richard John Jones (2009-2012) and Rachel Pimm (founding member 2007-2009).This work has been developed through a series of temporary spaces in Peckham (2007-12), Kings Cross (2013-15) and its current space in Bethnal Green (2016-present). Since 2012, Auto Italia's has been one of Arts Council England's National Portfolio Organisations.
