Rosetta Windows Gallery was a free public gallery that showcased work from emerging and established artists and was a platform for showcasing a range of work and visual arts disciplines.
It faced out onto the historic Rathbone Market in Canning Town and formed part of a wider programme of community engagement workshops, events and projects. A report of the activities that took place can be downloaded from this page.
Previously a vacant retail space that used to be a charity shop, Rosetta Art Centre transformed the venue into a meanwhile use exhibition space for contemporary art as part of the ongoing redevelopment of the Rathbone Market site. As a community-facing gallery, it allows members of the public to interact with the artworks on show without them having to cross a threshold or literally walk in to an art venue.
The gallery was open from July 2011 to November 2012 and was part of the FirstThursday network of east London galleries (the eastern most outpost). Whilst this project has come to an end as the regeneration of Canning Town moves into a new phase, the gallery is seeking a new home and will be looking to hold new exhibitions in the near future.
