    @traxcitement it’s a cool building, it plays with perspective and has less floors than the windows on the outside suggest.Originally it was designed to have a bigger front section of the ground floor as glass, but I don’t think any building firm would take it onRivington PlaceFrom the BBC London site

    Nice photo! Yes, it is only 5-storeys, but has 8 levels of windows. The full height glass windows on the ground level allows passers-by to see the gallery space and exhibits.

    New gallery opening in July near London Fields:

    GALERIE8 is a contemporary art gallery located in the Arthaus building of London Fields. Through exploration of the art form’s relation to its sociocultural context, the programme presents international and local artists, site-specific installations, and innovative platforms that look for alternatives to the white cube space. The gallery is also accompanied by a web-based journal as an invitation to look closer – or take a second look – at how the exhibition, and our experiences can be re-imagined.

    The gallery atrium encompasses 250 square meters of floor space and an open-air ceiling spanning five floors, allowing for natural light and large-scale works. The location of the Arthaus building is a multi-use platform which includes a café to allow for reflection and refreshment, a literary resource centre for further exploration, and both commercial and residential spaces for rental usage.

    Gallery team:
    Audrey Yeo, Director
    Michelle Schultz
