A founding principle of the Gallery was to support emerging artists and over the last 20 years it has exhibited work by many individuals who are now recognised internationally. The Eagle Gallery continues to introduce the work of young artists alongside more established artists and encourages a use of the space for experimentation and cross-discipline collaboration.
The Eagle Gallery has initiated many projects to bring artists together with musicians, composers, writers and filmmakers, and has collaborated with public institutions and arts organisations including Aldeburgh Music, Almeida Opera, the British Library, Kettle’s Yard, Sadler’s Wells Theatre, TATE, the Wallace Collection and the Venice Biennale.
Works by Eagle Gallery artists are held in public and corporate collections including Arts Council, England; British Library; Clifford Chance; Fidelity PLC; Government Art Collection; Guttenberg Museum, Mainz; Metropolitan Museum of Art, NY; Penguin Books; TATE; Victoria and Albert Museum; and Yale Center for British Art, USA.
