The Residence Gallery exhibits innovative, authentic, challenging, interdisciplinary fine art including painting, video, sculpture, photography, immersive installation and more. The gallery undertakes critical review to select relevant, original, culturally pioneering, skillful and thought-provoking artists, locally and internationally.
The Residence Gallery is a 21st century conceptual and commercial art venue directed by artist Ingrid Z in East London. It's history stretches a decade back as an idea for a palatial d.i.y. museum in an abandoned Victorian mental hospital (occupied in Whitechapel, 2004 as the "Tate Post-Mortem"). It unleashed itself as "The Residence" with over 100 exhibitions in a shop premises during 2005, followed by its covert takeover of The Verger’s Cottage (St. Mary of Eton Church), haunted home to Ingrid Z. Notice of demolition prompted the gallery to secure a permanent move to 229 Victoria Park Road in London's secret gem neighbourhood of Victoria Park Village.
"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)
