Rivington Place in the heart of Shoreditch is the UK's first permanent public space dedicated to diversity in the visual arts.
The RIBA award-winning building designed by acclaimed architect David Adjaye is influenced by African and contemporary art as well as the history of the local area.
It hosts programmes and exhibitions presented by the Institute of International Visual Arts (Iniva) and Autograph ABP, a charity that works internationally in photography and film, cultural identity, race, representation and human rights.
Inside there are gallery and education spaces, the Stuart Hall Library - a collection of exhibition catalogues, monographs, audio-visual material and slides - meeting rooms to hire and a cafe.
It provides a space for viewing, learning about and researching contemporary art. It has also become a hive of activity and a meeting place for the local East London community.
