Project Overview

The Institute of Ecotechnics founded and developed The October Gallery, an internationally recognized art and cultural events center in the Bloomsbury area of central London as a meeting place for the ‘transvangarde’ – cutting-edge artists, musicians, poets and thinkers from all cultures around the planet. The October Gallery annually curates between seven and ten art exhibitions relating to different cultures each year as well as hosting a wide range of musical, dance and theatrical performances, as well as seminars, symposia and talks on a range of scientific and cultural topics. With a café serving daily lunches both to London-based habitués and globe-trotters just passing through, the Gallery maintains one of London’s warmest and most welcoming spaces for both old and new-found friends.

The rich diversity of art presented is an inspiration to collectors and enthusiasts. Institutions such as the British Museum, London; the Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York; Centre Pompidou, Paris; Museum Kunstpalast, Düsseldorf, Germany; Neue Galerie, Kassel, Germany; Setagagya Art Museum, Tokyo, Japan have all collected works from October Gallery.

Founded in 1979, October Gallery is a charitable trust which is supported by sales of art, rental of the Gallery’s unique facilities, grants from various funding bodies and the active support of dedicated artists, musicians, writers and many friends from around the world. The Gallery’s Education Department is inclusive of all ages from under 5 to PGCE student and delivers a wide range of provision.
