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 believe that for artists to grow and develop and to produce their best work, they must be given time, space and support away from external commercial and political pressures. We work with artists at key moments in their development, at all stages of their careers.
Our approach leads to the production of innovative works of contemporary art that offer educational benefit to the hundreds of students we welcome to the gallery each year.
Matt’s Gallery is an Arts Council England National Portfolio Organisation and a registered charity. In addition to our funding from Arts Council England, we rely on support from Trusts and Foundations, our Friends and Patrons and individual donations.
