  1. Formans Smokehouse Gallery Road, Fish Island, Hackney Wick. You can’t miss it, it’s a big pink building! I have been to a couple of exhibitions there,quite good; nice exhibition space overlooking the canal and Olympic Stadium.

  2. Rivington Place Street EC2. Culturally Diverse Arts Centre and first new build public gallery since The Hayward in 1968. Worth a visit to see Adjaye Associates striking building.

  3. @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

  4. 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.

  5. Geffrye Museum has small exhibitions both inside and outside the Museum

  6. V&A Museum of Childhood also has small temporary exhibitions, the current one is ‘Food Glorious Food’. Just outside Hackney I know, but not too far.

  7. Studio 75 is an Artist run space that holds small Art exhibitions.
    Studio 75 is located at 75 Hebden Court Laburnum Street Haggerston.”

  8. – Campbell Works run by Neil Taylor and Harriet Murray at 27 Belfast Road London N16 6UN

  9. The Piper Gallery St Marks Church Hall Colveston Crescent E8. The Piper Gallery is a commercial art gallery dedicated to representing older artists who are continuing to produce original and dynamic work.”

  10. 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.
