Block 336, the new artist-led gallery announces its inaugural exhibition: ‘1’. The show, ‘1’ will feature recent work from the five Block 336 resident artists and eight invited artists, who work in the fields of drawing, painting, film and sculpture.


Block 336 will be a platform for emerging and established artists who work across a range of disciplines. As a not-for-profit organisation Block 336 will promote engagement and critical discussion of contemporary art and ideas through its programme of exhibitions and events. Block 336 is also partnering with local charities and other institutions to offer their ‘Access to Art’ Programme.

Block 336 occupies the basement of 336 Brixton Road which is a classic example of 1960’s ‘Brutalist’ architecture. The building was a computer centre for Coutts Bank until 1979. It was briefly used by illegal ravers, before becoming a disability hub managed by the Lambeth Accord Charitable Trust. Block 336 has transformed the largely unused basement into a 450 square metre exhibition space, with additional studio space to accommodate artist residencies, workshops and the production of site-specific projects.

Block 336 is a short walk away from Brixton tube station, the vibrant Brixton Village and the O2 Academy.
