Founded in 1983 , the Showroom was one of the first main art platform of East End London, marking itself as a force in the development of contemporary art practice. Formerly located in Bonner Road site in Bethnal Green, it later moved to Penfold Street near Edgware Road in 2009.
The gallery has had four directors: Emily Pethick (2008–current), Kirsty Ogg (1998–2008), Kim Sweet (1992–1998) and David Thorp (1988–1992) and since 2009 its core staffing, while still small, has increased.
