Exhibition curated by Christine Eyene

Current/Upcoming Exhibitions & Events:

Our artistic programme provides a platform for participation, exchange and dialogue for artists, our partners and diverse audiences. Our exhibitions and artist led projects provide a framework for events which bring together individuals and organisations inside and outside of the arts to engage in debate and creative practice. Our work is particularly focused on issues of social inclusion and diversity and seeks to engage with global issues while being rooted in the history of our locality.

Our gallery general opening hours are: Monday – Friday, 11:00am – 5:00pm

Please click on exhibitions for specific programmed events/ opening hours outside of these.

198 Contemporary Arts and Learning is a centre for visual arts, education and creative enterprise.

Our stakeholders include:

• Artists and curators of colour • Young people from BAMER communities seeking careers in the creative industries •

• Audiences seeking more diverse visual arts • Our local community • Partner arts organisations • Partner community organisations •

Our work is framed by our local communities and the history of the Brixton uprisings from which we sprang. Our work is informed by a policy context that calls for greater action on equality, and is shaped by unfulfilled demand for diverse visual arts and new pathways to creative careers.
