artlab is a venue for all artists who are pushing the boundaries of medium and form.
artlab is a gallery space dedicated to installation, time-based media, sound and light.
artlab is not afraid to showcase the fruit of visual experimentation; it does not require a 'finished product' or an 'established artist'.
