Keith Talent Gallery, named after the main protaganist from Martin Amisâ€™s London Fields, was established in October 2001, converting 4,000 square feet of industrial space in London Fields, East London into 10 artists’ studios and a gallery space. Founded by Andrew Clarkin and Simon Pittuck, who met at the Royal Academy Schools, the space is recognized for showing emerging artists alongside established practitioners. The gallery has curated diverse exhibitions over the last two years and has collaborated with artist-run project spaces and established commercial galleries in Britain and the USA.
