The Showroom is a not-for-profit art gallery, located at 63 Penfold Street, London NW8, which puts on exhibitions by emerging artists. The current Director is Emily Pethick, who has worked at the gallery since May 2008. She was preceded by Kirsty Ogg, Kim Sweet and David Thorp.
The gallery programme focuses on new works created for the space. The gallery presents four shows each year, a schedule that allows artists the time to develop and realise their work on site.
Established in 1983, the gallery was based at a site in Bethnal Green, East London. In 2008, the gallery relocated to a building in Marylebone, London, on Penfold Street, which was converted by Berlin-based architects ifau + Jesko Fezer.
The Showroom receives fixed-term funding from Arts Council of England and other organisations and individuals.
