About Focal Point Gallery

Focal Point Gallery displays contemporary art that challenges us to think and feel differently about locality, our sense of self and the importance of communities. It curates and commissions an on-going programme of artist moving image. It seeks to engage with a wide range of local community groups, schools, young people and children.

Focal Point Gallery produces up to seven gallery exhibitions each year with the use of lens-based media. In 2013, a series of permanent commissions by Marc Camille Chaimowicz, Mike Nelson, Allen Ruppersberg and Tris Vonna-Michell were installed. These were supported by a capital project funded by Southend-on-Sea Borough Council and Arts Council England.

The Gallery receives regular funding from Arts Council England and Arts Council England because these are two of the organization’s national portfolios funded organizations. They also receive additional funding from other trusts and foundations and collaborates with partners. This include arts agencies and other organizations to co-produce projects.
