The 198 Gallery seeks to enhance the cultural perceptions of the wider community through the comprehension and appreciation of culturally diverse visual art. It aims to provide a platform for a new and fresh visual art language that represents the cultural diversity of British society and give the opportunity for an analysis and appreciation of this work through interpretation and education. The 198 Gallery was established in 1988 after the Brixton riots to support the work of black artists by meeting their needs for exhibition space. The 198 Gallery is now a venue for artists from diverse cultural backgrounds and has gained a profile for innovative issues-based exhibitions and critically acclaimed work in the field of multicultural art education.

New Geographies, solo exhibition by Monica de Miranda,  198 Gallery - 198 Railton Road - Herne Hill - London SE24 OLU  
3/30 - 5/05

New Geographies : exhibition by Monica de Miranda
Rooted in cross-cultural fertilisations, New Geographies pushes the boundaries of the conventional notions of place and nation. A solo exhibition of work by Monica de Miranda, it reflects on how globalisation is profoundly transforming our apprehension of the world, provoking new senses of identity and the creation of new territories. New Geographies explores the subsequent erosion of national identities and the advent of a new cosmopolitanism, embodied by the juxtaposition of a rich mix of communities in a contemporary urban metropolis, such as London.
The various pieces exhibited offer a multi-faceted analysis of globalisation and how it affects our lives, at a micro - the local, the individual; and macro scale - sense of belonging to a community, a nation.
Building on Monica’s personal experience of globalisation, exploring her own narrative and the ones of her relatives, friends and fellow artists, New Geographies intends to re-contextualise the abstract issues of multiple identity, cultural hybridity, displacements and integration, by providing tangible evidence of the impact of these phenomena on an individual’s environment: communications, creation of hybrid languages and customs, mixed relationships, regulation of migratory fluxes by national policies…
Questioning the assumption of fixed national identities, using multimedia, video and installation, New Geographies is a biographical account of Monica’s multiple and personal encounters with globalisation - being herself a global migrant.
Since graduating from Camberwell College of Art, and the Institute of Education, Monica de Miranda has participated in numerous exhibitions and festivals (October Gallery, ICA, Horniman Museum, V&A, Singapore Fringe Festival) and public art projects (Southwark Art Regeneration, Thames Festival). She was recently awarded a residency at the Calouste Gulbenkian Foundation in Lisbon, Portugal. [ read more ] »

198 Gallery in Brixton showcases the work of the young people who have taken part in the Urban Vision digital media arts education programme.
198 Gallery is proud to cement its position as a key contributor to both the wider community and the London art scene. Since its creation, in 1988, after the Brixton riots, 198 Gallery has been at the leading edge of creative education in Lambeth. Designed to provide young people aged 13-19 with access to new media technology, Urban Vision is 198 Gallery’s unique new media arts programme addressing young peoples creative needs. The Urban Vision - Metropolis exhibition gives talented budding graphic designers, photographers and illustrators an opportunity to exhibit their innovative work and celebrates the integration of the urban lifestyle to the UK culture. This year, the Urban Vision – Metropolis exhibition includes artworks created in partnership with the Youth Advocate Programme (ISSP) Digital Expressions (YAP) and the Lambeth Youth Offending Team. The exhibition is presenting pieces that have been produced through the new ‘Pix and Mix’ programme in Graphics, Photography, and Illustration. It will also include video projects such as the Africa Remix film ‘Brixton Bytes’, in collaboration with Digital Extensions-Hayward Galley. This show is the young people’s response to the urban sprawl expressed through photography and Graphic Art. They are the new lifeblood of the British Art scene and this will be their debut.
