Print House Gallery
Print House Gallery is an intimate and exciting gallery space in the heart of Dalston. Our primary focus is to showcase a mixture of emerging and established contemporary artists across a variety of artistic mediums. The ongoing aim for the gallery is to show work from a selection of artists we really believe in and want to share.
The Print House Gallery differs slightly from other galleries. Whilst we are a commercial gallery space at heart, we also exist to help the growth of social and creative enterprises. It is incredibly important to all of us involved that we find the time between major shows to support charity based organisations and education programmes.
We’re always on the look out for new artists so please get in touch.
Escaping War and Waves – Olivier Kugler Exhibition
Our tenant Olivier Kugler’s series of brilliant drawings of refugees from Syria will be exhibited at the Print House Gallery during Refugee Week (18-24 June) until the 15th July. Collected in his book ESCAPING WAR AND WAVES for the first time, the drawings document the lives of individuals and families he met in Iraq Kurdistan, the tourist island of Kos, and the jungle camp at Calais, mostly on commission for Médecins Sans Frontières. As well as his work with Médecins Sans Frontières, Kugler recorded the experiences of refugees in London, Birmingham and Simmozheim, the small village in Germany where he grew up. The stories he tells are often tragic but also uplifting, testimony to both human senselessness and resilience. Based on many interviews, thousands of reference photos, and an acute observation of the objects, locations and conversations making up our daily lives, the effects of what he records will be felt for decades to come. On display will be original sketches (A4), pencil drawings (A2) and prints in various sizes from the ESCAPING WARS AND WAVES project.
