A visit to this ex-Victorian furniture factory rarely disappoints. Victoria Miro first opened her gallery in Mayfair's Cork Street in 1985. It quickly became known for showcasing the work of established and emerging artists from the USA, Europe and Asia, and as a breeding ground for exciting new British talent. In 2000 Victoria Miro Gallery relocated to this expansive 8,000 sq ft space located right on the border between Hoxton and Islington. The exhibition space spans two floors and the gallery is almost unique in London for having its own landscaped garden, overlooking Regent's Canal, which has been used for installations by artists such as Yayoi Kusama. Among the glittering clutch of artists it represents are Turner Prize winners Grayson Perry and Chris Ofili. In 2007, the gallery opened Victoria Miro 14, a sleek space next door to the original that's used for exhibitions and special projects. Christian Holstad, Tal R, Idris Khan and Doug Aitken have also had exhibitions here.
