Matt’s Gallery is one of the UK’s leading contemporary art galleries, supporting the making of new and innovative work since its foundation more than 40 years ago in 1979.
During this time, it has been an independent and influential force in the visual arts sector, both nationally and internationally, championing the careers of artists such as Melanie Counsell, Willie Doherty, Benedict Drew, Jimmie Durham, Susan Hiller, Melanie Jackson, Rebecca Lennon, Mike Nelson, Nathaniel Mellors, Lindsay Seers, Marianna Simnett and Imogen Stidworthy.
Matt's Gallery exists to give artists the time, space and support they need to take risks, test their limits and surprise even their own intentions. We provide the best conditions for experiencing art and engaging audiences. We work with artists at key moments in their development, at all stages of their careers.
In 2014, founder and director Robin Klassnik was awarded an OBE in recognition of his contribution to contemporary art. In April 2022 it opened its current space in Nine Elms. Designed by architects Manalo & White, it is secured on a affordable 25 year lease through Wandsworth Council.
Matt’s Gallery is a registered charity and an Arts Council England National Portfolio Organisation.
