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.

A wide variety of contemporary art exhibitions every 2-3 months, with a fantastic live art and film programme, delicious cafe, brilliant shop & beautiful new artist designed garden.
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.
