South London Gallery  Free contemporary art gallery with bookshop and café @thehabitlondon


A limited edition of 30 hand-made cushion covers have been produced for the South London Gallery’s shop using a new collaboratively designed fabric. Our young people’s group the Art Assassins and artist Eleanor Wright have created a new printed fabric design inspired by the local built environment in Peckham. Entitled ‘A Pattern Language’, this new work has been developed as part of the Art Assassins’ year-long project exploring the history of the Peckham Experiment.

On Saturday 3 Feb join us to explore the interdisciplinary art of Julia Heyward. Also known as Duka Delight, Heyward was a major figure in New York’s downtown performance art scene during the 1970s. Nothing Random Access Memory is an all day screening and performance event, which brings together works by the artist shown for the first time in the UK. Since the early 1970s, Heyward’s multifarious practice has explored language through live performance, photography, film and video and interactive digital works. Nothing Random Access Memory includes early, mid-career and recent works including two interactive live performances by the artist titled Miracles in Reverse (1996) and 29 SpaceTime (2017), a series of video vignettes and interactive panoramic projections. This event is organised by Elisa R. Linn and Lennart Wolff. A performance and screening by Julia Heyward will travel to the @bronxmuseum in New York City in March 2018.

In Michael Armitage’s ‘Lacuna’ (2017) land and sky collide amidst creeping images of lizards, unfathomable figures and the outlines of faces.
No single motif dominates, with equal detail and depth being given to each and a flattening of the images creating a seductive yet disorientating effect.

Ilona Sagar’s new installation and exhibition at the SLG explores the history of the radical Pioneer Health Centre in Peckham and its subsequent conversion into a gated community. Sagar worked closely with the present-day residents of the building and combined archival footage with new work filmed at the former Centre. The Pioneer Health Centre was founded in 1926 in response to rising public concern over the health of working class people and an increasing interest in preventative social medicine and experimentation. It culminated in the ‘Peckham Experiment’, a twenty-four year study which took place in a new, purpose-built space designed by Sir Owen Williams, comprising large, airy rooms with floor-to-ceiling windows, which enabled biologists to observe members of the local community as they took part in physical exercise, games and clubs.

Michael Armitage’s new exhibition at the SLG is now open. This is Armitage’s first major solo show in a public gallery in London and features a new series of eight large-scale paintings, made with the chapel-like qualities of the SLG’s main space in mind. The paintings explore the ambiguous boundaries between religion, folklore and social consensus, particularly in relation to issues of mental health in East Africa and have been inspired by historical and contemporary news stories, internet gossip, and the artist’s own experiences of Kenya.
The galleries, book shop and café are open until 9pm tonight. The exhibition continues until 23 February.

Huge congratulations to Lubaina Himid on her Turner Prize win this week. Her work 'We Will Be' was part of our summer exhibition #ThePlaceisHere and if you want to explore her work further we’d recommend listening to Radar Radio’s exhibition tour which starts with her piece ‘We Will Be’ from 1985 (link in bio).
‘We will be who we want, where we want, with who we want, in the way we want, when we want and the time is now and the place is here’. Lubaina Himid
