The space, located in Caldera restaurant in the Monohaus building on Mare Street, will showcase paintings, photography and other art pieces from local talent.
Owner of Caldera, Arya Razi, said: "Many of our guests work in the creative fields and have been affected by the economic fallout of the pandemic so we wanted to develop a space inside our restaurant where we can showcase their work.”
To mark the launch, the restaurant teamed up with Hackney artist, Skeleton Cardboard, who is designing unique new uniforms for staff.
Skeleton Cardboard said: “It’s great to support a local independent restaurant in these most trying of times.”
