The Royal Standard

The Royal Standard is an artist-led gallery, studios and social workspace in Liverpool. It was established in 2006 by four Liverpool-based artists in response to the need for a new artist-led organisation that would operate somewhere in between the city’s grass-roots DIY initiatives and the more established arts institutions.

Through a dynamic and challenging gallery programme that brings together local, national and international artists, The Royal Standard aims to showcase the most exciting, innovative exhibitions and events that it can, working with the most outstanding recent graduates and emerging artists as well as more established practitioners and other artist-led initiatives. It is dedicated to promoting exchange, dialogue and experimentation, providing a supportive and critically engaged environment to work in, and acting as a social hub for its studio membership of 27 artists, as well as the wider cultural community.
