Twenty Rivington

Twenty Rivington

Twenty Rivington is a project space run by Contemporary Art Projects. They collaborate with international galleries and curators to introduce their artists to a London audience. This service is convenience for galleries that want to give their artists London exposure without the expense and commitment of running a full-time London exhibition space.

Twenty Rivington is located in Shoreditch, East London. The building dates from 1897 and is a English Heritage grade-2 listed former furniture workshop.

As space permits, we also work with selected independent artists to provide them with a high quality platform to expose their work to collectors, curators and galleries.

The space is configured on 2 floors and provides an intimate setting to preview art and stage events. It is bookable on a weekly basis, either as a single space or together (subject to availability).
