LUVA (Lock Up Visual Art) is a gallery, experiment, social hub and activist moment. Open for just one day a month and situated in a lock up garage on the Approach council estate in East London, LUVA is dedicated to exhibiting diverse contemporary UK artists.

Co-run by Jordan McKenzie and students from Central Saint Martins College of Art, LUVA asks critical questions about the contexts that contemporary art exists within, its relationship to the geographical/ economic/social and cultural space (the estate) that it occupies and how cultural institutions can have meaningful dialogues with both local and non-local audiences.

Being located in one of the poorer boroughs in the UK, Tower Hamlets, LUVA also acts as a local food bank collection point, providing material support to the community it is based within.
