About me

The Hannah Barry Gallery grew out of a series of temporary exhibition projects in South London before establishing a roster of artists and permanent home in Peckham in 2007. The gallery has also initiated a series of high-profile international projects including the Palazzo Peckham for the 2013 Venice Biennale. Hannah Barry also founded Bold Tendencies as a not-for-profit creative enterprise and arts organisation based in Peckham in 2007. It is located on Levels 7-10 of the disused municipal multi-storey car park. Over a 10 year period Bold Tendencies - together with its core partner projects Frank’s Cafe and the awardwinning Multi-Story Orchestra - has transformed its car park home through an annual commissioning programme of visual art, music and literature and pioneering architectural commissions including Frank’s and the Straw Auditorium. With immersive public spaces, spectacular views across London and innovative portfolio of education and community work the project has attracted more than 1 million visitors so far. From 2007-2014 she worked closely with Anthony d’Offay in particular on the fifty ARTIST ROOMS of Post-war and Contemporary art donated by Anthony d’Offay to TATE and the National Galleries of Scotland in 2008, with the generous help of the National Heritage Memorial Fund, the Art Fund and the Scottish and British Governments. The purpose of the donation was to make available to regional museums in the UK curated monographic exhibitions of many of the most distinguished artists of modern times - from Joseph Beuys and Andy Warhol to Jeff Koons and Damien Hirst - with a special emphasis on young people and education. The size of the donation makes ARTIST ROOMS one of the major acts of philanthropy in art of our time. She is Co-Chair of the Chinati Contemporary Council, Marfa Texas.
