Opening today in Soho London NEW massive Creative Art Space

Soho Revue is a brand new creative space in the heart of London’s Soho. Opening on Greek Street today, Tuesday 14th April, hoping to reclaim Soho’s artistic status by creating a credible platform for emerging creative talent.

Soho Revue wants to get a bit of the old Soho back and its diversity of talent matches the diversity of Soho.

Soho Revue is a space that will spark an intellectually creative conversation at a range of events including panel discussions, lectures, life drawing sessions, theatre and film presentation.

Curating the opening gallery programme is Soho’s Revue’s own creative directors Victoria Williams and Marine Tanguy. They will feature work by eight young visual artists exploring a range of mediums. These include Alison Bignon, Jennifer Abessira, Scarlett Bowman, Gabriella Boyd, Wendy Bevan, Walter Hugo & Zoniel. Their works will be exhibited alongside the three- screen cinematic installation Eleanor, which stars recent Golden Globe winner Ruth Wilson and was created by Alex Warren and Tobias Ross-Southall.

Their vision is:

To create a fluid environment that is ever-changing and evolving, at the cutting edge of artistic endeavour. A platform for creative thinking across disciplines, which generates opportunities for learning and innovation amongst artists, visitors to the gallery and the wider Soho community.

Soho Revue will also be launching a new regular central-London arts publication – The Revue. This will be distributed in key London locations and will provide a voice to young arts writers in who are unlikely to be heard in the highly competitive world of art theory.
