Transition Gallery is a contemporary art project space in South Hackney, East London. It is run by artists Cathy Lomax, Alli Sharma and Alex Michon.

History[edit]

Transition Gallery was founded in October 2002 in a converted garage close to Victoria Park, Hackney, London, and is run by artists Cathy Lomax and Alex Michon to show work by established and new contemporary artists.[1]

In March 2004, Liz Neal's Archway council flat studio was recreated as an installation inside the gallery for a show called The Lair of the Lotus Eater.[2] Her work was exhibited in the Saatchi Gallery's New Blood show in the same year.[2]

In 2005, Evening Standard critics, Nick Hackworth and Brian Sewell, visited the gallery. Hackworth wrote: It looks like a small garage workshop, but instead of Star Motors the legend reads: "You don't have to be blonde to be an artist, but it helps." Inside, the walls are papered with magazine pages, photographs and postcards on the theme of quintessential Englishness; among them are paintings by Lomax and Michon. There is a subversive innocence about the installation.[3]
