Ambika P3

Hidden in an underground hanger once used for concrete construction, the Ambika P3 Gallery has a wealth of space and an air of the ‘undiscovered’. Gallery commissions as part of the P3 Programme, and the sheer scale of the gallery space offers artists the opportunity to produce a range of creative large-scale installations and prototyping. It’s also hosted the cooler and edgier Sunday Art Fair during the fair deluge that dominates London’s art scene every October.

London Aficionado

A huge underground exhibition space, covering 14,000 square feet, accessible via an unassuming entrance located next to the University of Westminster Marylebone Campus. It’s a great setting to showcase artistic works from new and upcoming talent, as well as a platform for the more established names. The most impressive installation I’ve seen there to date was Heiner Goebbels, Stifter’s Dinge: The Unguided Tour, back in November 2012. I don’t recall ever seeing anything quite like that before or indeed since. Unique and fascinating.

Look out for new exhibitions on their website and check out some of the previous ones listed as well to get an idea of what’s on offer. Definitely worth a visit if you’re into more experimental forms of art.


As a central London space, Ambika P3 is definitely huge! I've only ever visited at the time of graduate shows, but the students are very fortunate to have such a large place to host their final exhibitions! There's definitely a slightly industrial vibe to this place, but it kind of works!


This is a sprawling space that lends itself to ambitious exhibitions. The art is going to be hit or miss.

SOLO EXHIBITION: DAVID HALL End Piece ... 16 March - 22 April 2012. Ambika P3 will present a major solo exhibition by David Hall, the influential pioneer of video art, featuring a monumental new commission '1001 TV Sets (End Piece)' 1972-2012, as well as restaging two seminal early works. This timely exhibition vividly heralds the end of analogue TV in the UK as London finally switches to digital on 18 April 2012. The contemporary reworking of one of Hall’s early major works ‘101 TV sets’ will form the centrepiece of the exhibition. '1001 TV Sets (End Piece)' features 1001 aging cathode ray tube TV sets which will fill the massive P3 subterranean space... David Hall received the inaugural Samsung Art+ Lifetime Achievement Award in January 2012. Ambika P3, 35 Marylebone Road, London NW1 5LS. Wed–Fri, 11am–7pm, Sat–Sun, 12pm–6pm. Tube: Baker Street.
