Zabludowicz Collection, London, UK
176, Prince of Wales Road, London
Inaugurated in 2007, the Zabludowicz Collection’s London project space presents exhibitions of collection works and new commissions by artists linked to the collection. Its varied programme includes group and solo exhibitions, commissions, residencies, the Zabludowicz Collection Curatorial Open and Testing Ground, an annual initiative for higher education in the arts and curating. It also has an active publishing arm and dynamic programme of free public events, ranging from talks and performances by artists and academics to community-based festivals and youth and adult education. All events and exhibitions are free and open to all.
History of the building
The former Methodist chapel that houses the collection was built between 1867 and 1871, in the Corinthian style. For nearly a century, it was the main place of worship for the Methodist community in north London. In 1963, the building was taken over by the London Drama School, which pioneered the Russian branch of method acting in the UK.
In 2004, when The London Drama Centre moved to new premises in Clerkenwell the building fell into disrepair. It was purchased by the Zabludowicz Collection in 2005 and was restored with a minimum of interference into its natural fabric by Allford Hall Monaghan and Morris. It reopened to the public in September 2007 as the London home of the Zabludowicz Collection. In 2010 the foyer was redesigned by Michael Marriott.
