October Gallery has supported some of the most innovative and exciting artists of our time, exhibiting artists from the Middle East, Oceania, Asia and Africa. The gallery is particularly known for exhibiting contemporary art from Africa and has been instrumental in bringing to international attention many of Africa’s leading artists of today, including El Anatsui, Nnenna Okore, Gérard Quenum, Julien Sinzogan, Owusu-Ankomah, Rachid Koraïchi and Romuald Hazoumè.

The rich diversity of artworks presented is an inspiration both to collectors and enthusiasts. Institutions such as the British Museum, London; the Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York; Centre Pompidou, Paris; Museum Kunstpalast, Düsseldorf, Germany; Neue Galerie, Kassel, Germany; Setagagya Art Museum, Tokyo and GOMA, Brisbane, have all collected works from October Gallery.

As a registered charity October Gallery runs a significant educational programme for London schools. Its elegant three-storey Victorian building in Bloomsbury houses a cafe, theatre and garden-courtyard. The Gallery maintains a cultural hub in central London, hosting talks, performances and seminars for poets, writers, artists and intellectuals.
