"The wonderful and unforgetble gallerist INGRID Z is back in action ... this should be a very fun and lively night- i shall be here"(RM) "This gallery could be described as the guggenheim gallery of London's east end: andre breton style surrealism meets hollywood glamour meets 21C futurism and street art chique - this is the place to be seen-(...)-this could be the new Gertrude Stein / AndyWarhol/Sid James art salon and a dynamo for the cutting edge" Richard Martin, Artpops (RIP 1954-2010)
The Residence Gallery has proudly established itself as a 21st century international artist-run and commercial art venue by East London's historic Victoria Park. The gallery's history began a few years back as an idea for a palatial d.i.y. museum in an abandoned Victorian mental hospital (squatted in Whitechapel, 2004 as the "Tate Post-Mortem"). It later unleashed itself as "The Residence" with over 100 exhibitions in a rented shop premises during 2005. This was followed up by its covert takeover of The Verger’s Cottage (St. Mary of Eton Church), haunted home to gallery Director/Artist Ingrid Z. Notice of demolition prompted the gallery to secure a permanent move to its much loved Victoria Park Road where it's now at last rooted at no.229 for many years to come.
The Residence Gallery celebrates innovative interdisciplinary forces including painting, video, photography and installation. It undertakes constant review to select relevant and engaging artists of our time.
