DESCRIPTION

JTG is a not-for-profit exhibition space established by two artists in a large sprawling, multi-roomed warehouse in Hackney, East London. Formerly a Victorian factory, china warehouse, squat and film location, the shifting identities of this extensive space are highly evident.

A conscious decision was made by the founders to retain these reminders of its past resulting in a space which provides a respite from the traditional "white cube".

The 10,000sqft gallery provides a platform for emerging artists and curators excited by the challenge to create work which contends with the building 'as is', inspired by its distinctive features and grand scale.
