Gerald Moore Gallery
Gerald Moore Gallery opened in April 2012 as a centre for modern and contemporary art with learning at its heart. Set within the grounds of Eltham College, this unique gallery was made possible by the generous donation of Old Elthamian Dr Gerald Moore and brings together a rich mix of people to create a new learning community, offering innovative learning opportunities and fostering meaningful experiences with art.
Through the development of an innovative programme of exhibitions Gerald Moore Gallery seeks to integrate learning at every level, building a creative centre that allows space for experimentation, risk-taking, creative action and critical reflection; encouraging open discussions between artists, curators, and audiences.
In unison with the exhibitions a learning and participation programme works with local community groups, teachers and schools, initiating dialogues and creating lasting relationships with our locality. Working alongside and also beyond the national curriculum, our focus is to offer ‘real’ learning opportunities to young people with outcomes not simply framed by the current education agenda, providing a reflective environment and a space for criticality.
Gerald Moore Gallery approaches its own development and leadership as an experimental practice, allowing time for research, reflection and dialogue. By presenting the gallery as a testing ground, we are able to re-imagine approaches to learning and making and offer new and emancipatory pedagogies.
