Overview
More
The South London Gallery is an internationally acclaimed contemporary art space which has been free to the public since its foundation in 1891. The gallery opened on its present site on Peckham Road in 1891 as the South London Fine Art Gallery and Library. Its founding mission to “bring art to the people of south London” is a vision which continues to hold true to this day and with a particular emphasis in the past twenty years, in showing challenging new work by emerging and established British and international artists.

Came to gallery via an article in the National Art Fund magazine about a brick garden by artist Gabriel Orozco. Very interesting project, nice time lapse video about the construction, unusual serene place. Further exhibitions in main gallery. Good spot to go when in area.
