The RKB Gallery was created in November 1999 in our Grade Two listed Union Street site. It offers degree level art students nearly 1000 square feet of exhibition space in Southwark, a fast changing area of London which has seen recent developments such as the Globe Theatre, the Jerwood Space gallery and, not least, the Tate Modern. In addition, the recent opening of the Jubilee line extension has greatly improved accessibility from most parts of the city.
The Gallery offers a unique opportunity for students to learn the sometimes painful process of marrying their creative skills to the demands of the commercial world. Dedicated to promoting 'works on paper', the gallery provides a space for the student to gain an insight into how an exhibition is created including responsibility for advertising, curating, hanging and staffing.
