New Wilkinson Gallery opening on Vyner Street, E2
6 September 2007
In September 2007 Wilkinson Gallery will move to a new space in Vyner Street, E2. The 6000 sq ft (560 sq m) building designed by architect Bobby Desai, is the first purpose built gallery in E2 now famous for its thriving contemporary art gallery scene.
The conclusion of the eighteen months project delivers to Amanda and Anthony Wilkinson two museum size gallery spaces for the main programme plus a project space for the development of a parallel programme of experimental one off projects and collaborations with other international public and private art organisations.
The Wilkinson Gallery was one of the first to open E2 in 1998, just a minute walk from the new space. Since then, the gallery has grown to represent international artists such as the acclaimed New York performance artist Joan Jonas and has also, over the last nine years, developed the careers of young artists, such as George Shaw, to international status.
The opening show will be painting by the acclaimed East German painter, Thoralf Knobloch whilst in the project space, Wilkinson will collaborate with New York gallery Orchard, to present “On the Collective for Living Cinema” a show based on a celebrated avant-garde film collective from the late 1970s.
