‘… a masterclass in inventive external expression.’
Awarded RIBA ‘Award for London’ in 2008
Rivington Place opened in October 2007 in the heart of Shoreditch, East London, and is the home to Iniva (Institute of International Visual Arts) and Autograph ABP’s dynamic artistic programmes.
Rivington Place is the UK’s first permanent public space dedicated to diversity in the visual arts and the first new public gallery to be built in
London for 40 years since the Hayward Gallery.
The RIBA award-winning building was designed by David Adjaye OBE and is influenced by African and contemporary art as well as the history of the local area. Housing gallery and education spaces, the Stuart Hall Library, meeting rooms to hire and a café, it provides a space for viewing,
learning about and researching contemporary art. It has also become a hive of activity and a meeting place for the local East London community.
