The South London Gallery (SLG) was founded in the 19th century by philanthropist William Rossiter to ‘bring art to the people of south London’. Today the gallery comprises its original site at 65 Peckham Road; the Fire Station at 82 Peckham Road; Art Block, a space for local children and families on Sceaux Gardens estate and two permanent gardens. The Gallery’s location between Camberwell and Peckham means that it is situated in the heart of one London’s thriving cultural centres. The SLG has an international reputation for its contemporary art exhibitions by British and international artists, often by those who have rarely or never had a solo show in a London gallery. All SLG exhibitions are free, as are many of the events. Visitors can enjoy one of London’s best loved contemporary art galleries, browse a curated selection of books and gifts in the shop, try our great café and relax in the Orozco garden.
