Having set up Vitrine Bermondsey Square in 2010, with a commitment to presenting emerging art practices and ideas from the unique aspect of a 16 metre long window with exhibitions viewable 24-hours a day, Vitrine now welcomes a new commercial gallery space reflecting its growth in recent years and its reputation as a nurturer of new talent.

The new Vitrine Bermondsey Street gallery, located at 183 – 185 just moments from the Vitrine Bermondsey Square gallery, will launch in September with, ‘Black Pudding’, (Private View Friday 14th September 6-9pm), a solo exhibition of works by London based artist Richard Gasper.
