Matt’s Gallery has signed a 25-year lease in the new buildings at The Residence on Ponton Road.
In addition to a double-height gallery space, the complex will provide two galleries, two artists’ studios, gallery shop and a project and events space. The building will also contain a publicly accessible archive dating back to the 1960s.
Cllr Ravi Govindia, Leader of Wandsworth Council commented: "We are delighted to welcome Matt's Gallery as a key cultural asset for Nine Elms and look forward to a rich programme of high-quality art exhibitions and installations. This is an exciting new addition to Nine Elms' growing reputation as a cultural destination.
"Importantly, this news also means that local communities are a step closer to enjoying arts and educational activities right on their doorstep as well as benefiting from the opportunities that arts and culture can bring."
Director and Founder of Matt's Gallery, Robin Klassnik OBE added: "We're excited about moving to Nine Elms. We are keen to get started and hope that Wandsworth locals embrace the gallery as their own. It is truly encouraging to see Wandsworth Council and Bellway delivering challenging and radical contemporary art to Nine Elms."
Emma Hamlett, Sales Director for Bellway London, commented: "The Residence is more than a development of new apartments, it is now also home to a fantastic collection of art for enthusiasts across Nine Elms to enjoy for years to come.
"We're delighted to house Matt's Gallery at The Residence, which really sets this development apart as something special."
Currently located in Bermondsey, registered charity Matt's Gallery is now preparing to fit out the new Ponton Road complex ahead of a public opening in spring 2020.
Arts Council England is providing a £200,000 capital grant to assist the gallery to move to their permanent home. Matt's Gallery is fundraising to reach a total of £1.15m to fully fit out the building.
