198 Gallery

The 198 Gallery was established after the Brixton Riots to support the work of Black artists by meeting their needs for an exhibition space.

It is now a venue for artists from diverse cultural backgrounds and the gallery has gained a profile for innovative issue-based exhibitions and critically-acclaimed work in the field of multicultural art and education.

The 198 Gallery has complemented its inclusive and culturally-diverse exhibitions with a critically-acclaimed education and training programme that aims to investigate the issues surrounding the exhibitions and encourage participation in the arts.

The 198 Gallery Education Policy is to provide a local resource to the community and to schools and colleges in the delivery of the National Curriculum. Our core aim is to provide knowledge and experience in the contemporary arts from diverse cultural backgrounds and relate it to new technologies and forms of cultural expression.

Central to our work with schools and colleges is the 198 Gallery�s �Education through Exhibitions� programme which is based on residences and exhibitions by contemporary visual artists from diverse cultural backgrounds. These projects consist of a series of four gallery- and school-based artist led workshops that integrate the Attainment Targets in Art and enable participants to make their own work informed by the work of practising artists.

The work produced by participants in the programme is exhibited at the 198 Gallery during the annual Schools Exhibition. All projects are supported by information packs for use by teachers� in schools or colleges. The 198 Gallery has an extensive archive of information packs, slides and videos from past exhibitions available as a resource to teachers.
