We’re always on the look out for innovative and exciting ways to exhibit photography and Peckham 24 is a must see! As a part of this year’s Photo London, Peckham 24 is a new 24 hour festival of contemporary photography and video. The festival brings together a community of local Peckham artists and art spaces, as well as a number of invited guests from the UK and Europe. In keeping with the area’s growing reputation as one of London’s most exciting contemporary art destinations, the selected exhibitions showcase a diverse range of practices from some of today’s cutting edge talent. Exhibiting artists include Ciaran Og, Arnold, Jo Dennis, Tom Lovelace, Ryan Moule, Jamie Shovlin and Belfast Exposed Futures.
Peckham 24 will be centered around the iconic Bussey Building in Copeland Park – a striking red-brick factory building and surrounding warehouses that have been at the heart of Peckham’s creative community for the last decade. The festival will also provide the chance to explore some more unusual and non-traditional gallery spaces – such as DKUK Salon, a concept salon where clients get a haircut infront of an artwork, and the Safehouses, a pair of artist-run derelict houses on Copeland Road.
Peckham 24 starts at 6pm on Friday 20th May with a series of late Friday exhibition openings. The Nines bar will host a six hour continuous screening of video art from 6pm to midnight on Friday. The programme continues into Saturday 21st May with artist talks, workshops and exhibition tours, and culminates at 6pm on Saturday with an after party at The Nines.
