http://www.southlondonartmap.com/ I got up really excited for todays program, Jonathan has arranged a whole tour around Deptford,an area i never heard of before in south east London.Our guide,Tina,part of the South London Art Map,has plant an amazing 3 hour route to all the hidden Art Galleries of the Area. Galleries :
Bearspace Gallery : meeting point ,unfortunatly there wasnt any work installed in the exhibition at the time we went.
News of the world Gallery: http://www.southlondonartmap.com/galleries/news-of-the-world Divus : Is Magazine produced by a Czech Puplisher. This particular small space that we vistied is not only used as a Gallery but also as a reading room.The visitor can spent as much time as he wants reading the variety of books and magazines found in the Gallery space. Lubomirov Easton : As soon as we walked in we were all surprised of the number of art works ont he walls,apparetly there were more than 100 art work that were reaching the sealing.There was apparetly an open call for artist,submitting there work for a tener 🙂 a pretty good idea i quess if u run a gallery and you need some startup money 😉 However there were some interesting pieces in there which i photographed and attached below.
APT Gallery : an interesting big space.Really linked the fact that one of the artist was there,so we had the chance to have a bried discussion about his exhibiting work ”This exhibition brings together four quite different artists to explore one of the seemingly simplest of concepts, that of filling the void. It is a basic enough idea that it can be approached in a variety of ways, seriously or playfully, from childishly colouring in letters, filling the void of the blank page or canvas, to filling an emotional void with some obsessive activity, or filling the space of the gallery itself. The title and concept were partly inspired by the writer Georges Perec’s playful inhabitation of the page, and his novel A Void written entirely without the letter ‘e’.”
Number 57 : ”Number 57 is a new creative space at 57 Loampit Hill in London. We sell the work of (mostly) local artists and makers and host arts & crafts workshops, exhibitions, talks by local artists and makers, private dining events and more. This is a changing space with an emphasis on innovation, enjoyment and all things local so there’s always something new to look out for.”
Lewisham Art House : Next stop was Lewisham Art House,this exhibition was a little bit different than the previous once..and propaply my favourite! 🙂 I was an exhibition held by Lewsham Primary School.I have attached below evidence of the children’s creativity.
After our tour we head of to the last Gallery Space which unfortunately was closed BUT therefore we took the opportunity to take a group picture outside MMX space.
The tour has came to an end.We were all a bit tired but yet really fascinated about our small journey.It was a great opportunity for all of as to be together,explore deptford ,the galleries and of course the small suprises that were pupped in our way whike walking.
