Opened in July 2015, Unit G’s mission is to support and showcase East London’s fine art scene – whether the artists live, work, have a residency or choose to exhibit here. This could be anywhere within the four ‘Olympic Boroughs’ of Hackney, Tower Hamlets, Newham and Walthamstow, and cover any form of fine art, by which we mean authentic work intended as ‘art for art’s sake’ with no other function. By showcasing their best work locally, we do our bit to help and sustain a multitude of emerging and established artists globally. Within these parameters, we can curate a diverse range of art genres across a mid-range price level.
The team travels London’s artists’ openings, studios, art fairs and special events, looking to engage with a range of artists and bodies wishing to exhibit .
Unit G provides gallery services and makes curatorial judgments in partnership with fresh emerging artists, as well as those who are becoming established locally.
We show artworks in our online gallery and the physical space(s) of our partners. Purchased or leased works are certified by the artist and usually collected from them.
“Every age, every nationality, every mood gets connected when it comes to creativity, and we give that energy a new space to spread!”
