Auto Italia South East

Auto Italia South East is an artist run organisation that commissions and produces new work – collaborating directly with emerging artists. Founded in 2007, it aims to provide a framework for developing alternative approaches to production and exhibition formats.

Auto Italia is currently run by founding member Kate Cooper alongside Marianne Forrest and Edward Gillman with production assistance from Poppy Moroney, and support from its board of trustees: Mary Cork, Benedict Drew, Francesca Gavin, Katie Guggenheim, Lorna Gemmell, Lynn Hanna, Beatrice Pembroke and Ben Vickers.

Throughout Auto Italia’s history, the organisation has been led 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).

Auto Italia is an AWP Internship partner organisation. AWP Internship recipients: Will Rigby (2017/18), Ellie Butters (2016/17).
