South London Gallery

On this site for over a century, the SLG became one of the main showcases for the emerging Young British Artists in the 1990s. Still one of the capital's foremost contemporary art venues, the gallery has exhibited work by shows by established international figures such as Gilbert & George, Anselm Kiefer and Gavin Turk. The SLG also profiles the work of younger and mid-career artists, past exhibitions include Alice Channer, Ryan Gander and Oscar Murillo and group shows bring together works by established and lesser-known British and international artists. The gallery also presents integrated education projects for children, young people and adults, and an ongoing residency programme provides opportunities for artists to stay in the SLG's artists' flat.

Peckham's very own Mini-Tate...a beautiful, modern gallery with a gorgeous exhibition space. Certainly not every exhibition was worth a visit, but the very cosy room that makes up the café at the front of the building and the spacious, bright and oh-so-gorgeous winter-garden type room at the back will always make up for any potential losses! Suggested course of visit:

1. Check out the exhibition and see if you like it

2. Browse through the small but very fine gift shop

3. Decide on whether to sit at the front or the back of the café

4. Have a great coffe

5. Feel artsy and replenished

I'm ashamed to say I only visited South London Gallery for the first time last week, to see the Thomas Hirschhorn installation. Aside from having a fascinating history and a cracking cafe, SLG (formally known as South London Art Gallery - SLAG *snigger*) has gorgeous exhibition spaces and the current Hirschhorn installation is brilliant (as are the compelling films from Norwegian artist Ane Hjort Guttu upstairs). Both of these exhibitions finish in September, but if you can't make it before then it's well worth a trip to peckham.
