Ikon Eastside was an art gallery in the Digbeth area of Birmingham, England.

The gallery opened in 2006 as a second venue for the long-established Ikon Gallery in Brindleyplace.[1] It was housed in a Victorian former chapel and Sunday school, recognisable by the enigmatic words "Stay away from Lonely Places" prominently displayed on the façade - an artwork by Canadian artist Ron Terada.[2]

This venue closed in summer 2007, but the gallery re-opened in a different building a short distance away in May 2008.[3] After being part of the Fazeley Studios complex it closed for good in 2011.[4]
