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.

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.
