October Gallery

seen-london

The October Gallery is a stunning piece of modern intervention inside an old Victorian building. Founded in 1979, the gallery hosts contemporary art from all over the world, and for the past 35 years, the gallery has led the way in the development and exposition of ‘Transvangarde’, that is: trans-cultural-avant-garde. Many of the world’s leading international artists started here at The October Gallery and the gallery has been exponential in promoting the very best of contemporary art from around the globe, as well as becoming a hub of energy and excitement for cultural London, not only for the artists, but also for the poets, the writers and the intellectuals.

The gallery pays tribute to art in all its splendour, be it paintings, sculptures, films or academic musings. The gallery has a wonderful aptitude to embrace these mediums under one roof, and in doing so, has forged an eclectic portfolio, to the extent that British and international institutions, such as the British Museum and the Metropolitan Museum of Art, have collected pieces from the gallery to exhibit themselves.

A visit to the gallery is a step into a beautiful and diverse world of creative brilliance. SEEN highly recommends you prepare to lose some hours breathing in the splendour. The gallery is open from Tuesday to Saturday, from 12.30 to 17.30 and lunch is served from 12.30 to 2.30 with cakes and coffee available until 4.30.

Please note, however: the gallery is closed during official holidays and for the whole of August.

The White Asparagus: SEEN Reviews

How fortunate are the residents of Islington? Just a step away from the bustle of the Caledonian Road is the leafy idyll of Hemingford Road and the N1 Cuckoo Gastro-hub. Hard to believe that this little slice of the country resides at the heart of the big bad city. This feeling was heightened by the closed-off road and the children happily playing ball in the street.
