Matt’s Gallery HAS MOVED
Matt’s Gallery is pleased to announce our relocation to Decima Street, Bermondsey in South London, due to open in late summer 2016. In the meantime, the new space will be undergoing major construction and redevelopment works while the staff of Matt’s Gallery will work from an office nearby.
The new gallery in Bermondsey will occupy a central ground-floor space housed alongside an independent architectural practice and artist’s studio space, reminiscent of the first Matt’s Gallery in Martello Street.
The relocation will mark a key milestone in the gallery’s history. After 23 successful years at Copperfield Road, the new gallery space will enable us to continue commissioning exceptional works of contemporary art, and also, crucially, welcome both new and existing visitors to South London.
Bermondsey will be a temporary home to Matt’s Gallery until 2019/20 when it is anticipated the Gallery will move to a permanent 9,000 sq. ft, double-height gallery space in Nine Elms on the South Bank, marking the next phase and an exciting future of Matt’s Gallery.
Ravi Govindia, leader of Wandsworth Council, said:
“I’m delighted Matt’s Gallery is on course to make Nine Elms its new permanent home. They will be very welcome here in Wandsworth and another major attraction for this stretch of the South Bank as it becomes an exciting new centre for arts and culture in London.”
Your support is essential, empowering us to enter a new era where we can maintain our crucial role at the very forefront of the contemporary art world. To donate please click here.
