Happy 40th Birthday Matt's Gallery, Benedict Drew, 2019

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 challenging audiences.

We believe that in order 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.

Matt's Gallery is on the cusp of its next phase of exciting developments. In 2015 the Gallery won a competitive tender for a permanent new space at Nine Elms, Wandsworth, due to open in Spring 2020. The new building promises 6,000 square feet of space with scope for double-height galleries. We are creating a complex that will incorporate two double-height gallery spaces, a library and archive space and two affordable artists' studios.

We need your support to get us there and invite you to join us as we celebrate our 40th birthday.
