Opening on Greek Street on Tuesday 14th April, Soho Revue is a brand new creative space in the heart of London’s Soho designed to reclaim Soho’s artistic status by creating a credible platform for emerging creative talent.

Soho has lived through many transitions; from its grimy beginnings as the centre of London’s sex industry to showcasing some of the best restaurants and bars London has to offer. The change hasn’t pleased everyone and there are fears Soho is losing its edge. Soho Revue wants to get a bit of the old Soho back and its diversity of talent matches the diversity of Soho.

Soho Revue is a space that will spark an intellectually creative conversation at a range of events including panel discussions, lectures, life drawing
sessions, theatre and film presentation.

Soho Revue, located on Greek Street, is a vibrant destination where contemporary artists will come together within a remarkable setting. It has been founded by a panel of young artistic directors, whose backgrounds range from film-making to fine art, all working at the fore-front of their industry.

The gallery will play host to a highly discerning artistic programme of exhibitions and events that will be on a constant rotation. Curating the opening programme is Soho’s Revue’s own creative directors Victoria Williams and Marine Tanguy. They will feature work by eight young visual artists exploring a range of mediums.

These include Alison Bignon, Jennifer Abessira, Scarlett Bowman, Gabriella Boyd, Wendy Bevan, Walter Hugo & Zoniel. Their works will be exhibited alongside the three screen cinematic installation Eleanor, which stars recent Golden Globe winner Ruth Wilson and was created by Alex Warren and Tobias Ross-Southall.

Their vision is to create a fluid environment that is ever-changing and evolving, at the cutting edge of artistic endeavour. A platform for creative thinking
across disciplines, which generates opportunities for learning and innovation amongst artists, visitors to the gallery and the wider Soho community.

Soho Revue will also be launching a new regular central-London arts publication – The Revue. This will be distributed in key London locations and will
provide a voice to young arts writers in The Revue – minds who are unlikely to be heard in the highly competitive world of art theory.
