arebyte Gallery is a young contemporary space dedicated to New Media and Performance Art. Our mission is to become the London’s s most experimental and spontaneous practice-centered gallery.
- To become a leading organisation in providing further access to information about digital technologies and new media
- To offer audiences a deeper and more meaningful engagement with these developing art forms.
arebyte ensures that every artistic project explores exciting new ways of educating and involving our community.
Our model is self sufficient - our partnership with Arbeit Studios Ltd sees profits from studio lettings channeled.
into the gallery’s core costs. This allows us to direct our fundraised and earned income directly into the projects, artists and further research and development we undertake.
So far we’ve re-mapped Hackney Wick with a bunch of teenagers, re-evoked memories in Alzheimer’s sufferers, built robotic arms with university students and got over 300 local people to install public microphones throughout the city.
arebyte’s director Nimrod Vardi is part of the team behind Seeing-I project, with the artist Mark Farid and director John Ingle. The project has gained international coverage in more than 120 countries and has been featured on most major press such as BBC, FOX, SKY, The Guardian, The Independent, VICE, WIRED, ARTE and many others. Watch this space for more information in 2017.
arebyte gallery is supported by Arts Council England, Legacy List and Arbeit Project Ltd.

“In the past 2 years since moving to Hackney Wick, arebyte Gallery has become an integral part of the area's artistic and creative community and is doing some great work within digital arts practice which is an extremely interesting and important area considering the small number of galleries who currently work in the medium.
arebyte has also delivered some great projects which have involved the community and the wider area such as the structural sound project London. I am certain that in the coming months and years, they will maintain a high quality of work and bring ever more audience to Hackney Wick.”
