ARTWORK THAT CONNECTS
The Humble Gallery responds to the cultural life within Newham, and its neighbouring boroughs, connecting the diverse cultural communities of east London through art and the work of artists, based locally across the relevant diasporas. Our vision is to inspire and connect with people in our communities with art that resonates and is in dialogue with their own cultural lives.
We support emerging and mid-career artists across east London by offering opportunities to exhibit work, alongside professional development to raise their artistic profile whilst exposing them to broader audiences.
We offer people from the local area the chance to experience and fall in love with art, particularly those who don’t usually attend galleries and museums. By exhibiting the work of artists from different backgrounds and communities, we seek to connect with artistic practitioners whose central focus is to engage with their audiences.
