The Great Eastern Wall Gallery
Shoreditch has long been used as a canvas for urban artists. Graffiti, sculpture and installation art have all made their way onto its streets. Stalwarts of the emerging art scene in the community, Village Underground have now embraced this practice and opened London’s largest outdoor gallery space on their exterior wall on Great Eastern Street. With a traffic of approximately of 2.1 million passersby per month this innovative exhibition space boasts an audience that dwarfs the Tate, Barbican and ICA combined.
The Gallery at Village Underground
The Gallery (formerly known as the Great Eastern Bear) is an old Victorian bathroom positioned on Great Eastern Street, next to Village Underground's rear entrance. It's perfect for small exhibitions, shoots, launches, pop-ups - in fact, it's pretty good for almost anything.
