Opening on 17 September, this new public space for art and design is located in the Greenwich Peninsula and is a pivotal part of the area’s on-going regeneration. Designed by Marks Barfield Architects, the gallery is headed by curator Jemima Burrill and includes a wide network of collaborators, from Made Thought to Jason Bruges. Dutch designer Simon Heijdens has been charged with creating the inaugural installation, which is part of a series of three-month-long commissions from established and emerging artists, designers and creatives.
