DESCRIPTION

Hales Gallery opened in 1992 as an alternative space in Deptford, South London. From this unlikely venue, Paul Hedge and Paul Maslin successfully launched the careers of a number of emerging British artists at that time, including among many others, Jake and Dinos Chapman, Mike Nelson and Sarah Jones.

The venue's café became a social focal point for artists and created a good environment for the development and exchange of ideas. Both the gallery and café were regularly written about in the art press, national and international newspapers and attracted worldwide media attention.

In 1997 Hales became a commercial gallery and began to represent artists from international backgrounds including Hew Locke, Frank Bowling, Michael Smith, Bob and Roberta Smith and others. In 2004 Hales moved to its current new gallery space designed by architects HawkinsBrown in the Tea Building in London's East End.
