The P21 Gallery is an independent London-based non-profit organisation established to promote contemporary Middle Eastern and Arab art and culture. The two-story venue in central London has been identities recently designed by the award winning Egyptian architect, Professor Abdul Halim Ibrahim, as a place where contemporary artistic statements are experienced and appreciated by a global artistic community. The facilities at P21 are planned to maximise the potential of contemporary art as a discourse, through multimedia exhibition spaces on two levels with supporting facilities for public functions in addition to workshops for training and education. In addition, the P21 Gallery hosts a reference library, meeting rooms, a lecture hall as well as a specialised café. In short, it provides for a much needed meeting place in the heart of London.
