South London Gallery opened in 1891 with an aim `to bring contemporary art to the working people of South London´. The Gallery, has an international reputation for its challenging programme of contemporary art exhibitions, live art and off-site projects. Gilbert & George´s solo show put the gallery on the art world map in 1994. Over the past ten years numerous established figures and emerging artists have exhibited in this beautiful Victorian space, from Turner Prize winners Steve McQueen, Keith Tyson and Simon Starling to international stars like Tracey Emin, Barbara Kruger and Christian Boltanski.
South London Gallery is part of the following Travel Ideas:
"This attractive gallery in a southern backwater away from the centre may be Victorian but the art certainly isn’t. Since opening in 1891, with free admission one of its founding principles, the South London Gallery has always exhibited an eclectic mix of established and emerging artists, in recent years from Gilbert & George to Turner Prize winners Steve McQueen, Keith Tyson and Simon Starling and internationally famous names like Tracey Emin, Barbara Kruger and Christian Boltanski. As well as solo and group shows, there are live art events and integrated education projects for children."
