Metro Imaging x PECKHAM 24


PECKHAM 24 is a short festival of contemporary photography that takes in Copeland Park and Bussey Building place during Photo London week. For its fourth year, the festival is expanding, with additional exhibition spaces and a weekend programme packed with live events. The not-for-profit festival was created with the aim of a vibrant weekend of fringe events coinciding with Photo London and draw a crowd to experience the art scene in Peckham, South East London.

The 2019 artistic programme has been curated by Festival Directors Jo Dennis and Vivienne Gamble, and centres on the dual themes of collaboration and community. Highlights include:

– A special Friday night projection by Tom Hunter of his project Le Crowbar performed as a slideshow by the artist.

– Rehearsing the Real, a group exhibition curated by Tom Lovelace, where the central element will be a live collaborative work, bringing together artists within one creative space. The exhibition also features work by Thom Bridge, Sarah Howe, Steff Jamieson, and includes photography, film, performance and text.

– Photographic Memory by Baud Postma in Safehouse 2.

– Go Home Polish by Michal Iwanowski and curated by Vivienne Gamble.

– Violence Religion Injustice Death by Martin Seeds with Seen Fifteen Gallery.

– For Those Who Could See Beyond The Surface, a group exhibition curated by Emma Bowkett and featuring Alexander Mourant.

The festival programme for this year also includes new exciting partnerships with Photoworks and Webber Gallery.
