The South London Gallery has been a slightly off-the-radar hub for eminent and emerging contemporary artists ever since it opened on Peckham Road in 1891. In the 90’s it gained notoriety when shows by YBA’s such as Sarah Lucas,Gary Hume and Damien Hirst made it a central player in the Brit art phenomenon. As the First gallery to show Tracy Emin’s infamous tent, Everyone I Have Ever Slept With 1963-1995, the gallery really has been part of some iconic moments in British art history. Today it continues to produce a groundbreaking programme with an international purview.
