“arebyte! One of the very few galleries where experimental art is irreverent, entertaining but also deeply connected with society's most challenging issues.”
Régine Debatty, Founder of we-make-money-not-art.com
'Seven of the best new London galleries': “arebyte... has followed the creative tide down the river Lea to a place called London City Island. Which is also a new development, but one with an appetite for some creativity. A bit out of the way, but where better to let experimental art bloom?"
Eddy Frankel, Time Out
"arebyte is more than a gallery, it's a creative family which nurtures artists through conversation, camaraderie, resource-sharing, practical support and by building an interdisciplinary community around research so that the work develops in unexpected, ambitious ways, without limits or rules. Through working with arebyte, my practice has grown new organs and territories."
