198 Gallery - Art Space And Gallery In Herne Hill

The 198 Gallery is an independent art gallery with rooms for hire in Herne Hill, South London. The 198 Gallery (a registered charity) was born back in the 1980s at a time when racism and discrimination was rife in London, particularly in areas with high immigrant populations, and at a time where stop and search laws allowed police to randomly stop and search members of the community openly in the street.

As a consequence, civil unrest was high and anti-establishment conflicts drew the attention of politicians... something had to change. Funding provided by government to stimulate social regeneration in the community was an important catalyst for supporting Roots Community Limited, which in 1988 became the 198 Gallery.

The 198 Gallery is embedded in the community and has a strong commitment to diversity, equality and inclusion. By encouraging young people, particularly from ethnically diverse backgrounds, to express themselves freely and by providing them with the means to communicate their thoughts and ideas through art, the 198 Gallery are continuing to battle the white privilege that is unfortunately still so prevalent in modern society.

The artwork itself changes on a regular basis, with many of the pieces available for purchase. In addition to selling the artwork, the 198 Gallery offer both gallery spaces and a media room for private & corporate hire. In addition, the gallery are offering local artists, designers and businesspeople of all kinds the opportunity to rent their computers & use of their software for a nominal fee (widescreen Mac computers with full Adobe suite and other features).
