Gallery Preview: Camberwell Space

From late autumn 2017, Camberwell Space will be housed in a new purpose-built gallery located at the entrance to Camberwell College of Arts on Peckham Road, next door to the South London Gallery. It will be located at the front of the 1970’s block beside the main entrance so that students, staff and visitors will catch a glimpse of work exhibited as they enter the building. The inaugural exhibition programme includes ‘Making and Language’ an exhibition exploring the relationship between contemporary craft and language, curated by Maiko Tsutsumi and Bridget Harvey, and ‘A History of Drawing’ an exhibition charting the history of drawing practice and teaching at Camberwell College of Arts, curated by Kelly Chorpening.
