Anise Gallery is a contemporary art gallery with a strong focus towards the architectural aesthetic. Working with early to mid career artists in a wide range of media the gallery presents an exciting and diverse programme of exhibitions, events and talks that relate back to architecture, technology and the built environment.
Anise Gallery was founded in 2012 by Jacquelyn Jubert and Joseph Robson in Shad Thames, South East London. Occupying the ground floor of the Anise Building, a former spice warehouse and the gallery’s namesake, the space is also home to AVR London and A-VR – Architectural Illustrators and Virtual Reality Specialists respectively. The 3 companies collaborate on many projects, strengthening and reinforcing the ethos and branding of each individually and as a whole.
Anise Gallery’s first summer graduate show was held in 2012 shortly after its opening to great success and reward. Supporting, promoting and connecting with recent graduates from London art schools and those further afield has become a core part of the gallery’s programming.
In a continual effort to expand the gallery experience a programme of talks and events runs alongside the exhibition programming. Participation in London’s main architectural events such as the London Festival of Architecture and Open House London has provided opportunities for further collaboration and a chance to contribute to the invaluable work of the Architecture in Schools Programme.
“Anise Gallery reaches the parts other galleries do not reach, architecture, the urban environment, engineering and much more. They will always present you with something very personal and thought provoking, artworks made with skill and a passion for the built world.” Ben Johnson
