SIXTY NINE
SUBWAY GALLERY
 
6-30 JUNE 2012
 
 
SUBWAY GALLERY'S 69th EXHIBITION
A RETROSPECTIVE MARKING OUR 6th BIRTHDAY
 
It has been an inventive, challenging and inspirational journey,
constellated by many achievements. We are an innovative presence in
London's 21st century art scene, attracting worldwide media attention,
receiving positive and encouraging feedback from numerous followers,
visitors and the local community.
 
Since its foundation, the Subway Gallery has showcased a broad variety
of art practices and promoted over 150 British and international artists
from all walks of life, renowned and up-and-coming.
 
Our name derives from its underground location, one of London's most
unloved and unappreciated. Designed in the 60's as a forward thinking plan,
the subway for decades was left to deteriorate, its true potentials neglected.
 
When we started six years ago our objective was to revitalise the subway
with "the power of art". The Subway Gallery kiosk is an unexpected and
provoking art space, its clear glass walls allow to view and experience
art freely without a required commitment to enter a space.  
 
Our approach extends beyond the gallery boundaries, improving the
area visually and forming an oasis of creativity able to generate a change
with an emotional, stimulating response from the public and passers by,
making it more friendly and a positive cultural experience.
 
Thanks to all; artists and supporters, our continuous goal is to advance,
exhibiting new art and fostering pioneering projects.
 
The Subway Gallery is an outsider artist run gallery.
