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.
Camberwell Space is the public gallery at Camberwell College of Arts. Working in collaboration with leading artists, designers and curators, Camberwell Space initiates an original programme of internationally significant exhibitions. This programme is developed as an extension of the College’s teaching, and reflects the research interests of our academic and artistic communities. Camberwell Space is one of several new exhibition spaces at Camberwell College of Arts, which will include a student-led gallery, and bookable project spaces at Wilson Road. Camberwell Space is one of the University of the Arts London’s six public galleries.
Camberwell Space will offer the College community and the public the opportunity to engage with an innovative and original exhibition programme which will provide new perspectives on current debates in contemporary art, design and craft. Exhibitions will be complemented by a public events programme of lectures, symposia and workshops.
