Margot Heller was appointed Director in 2001 and the South London Gallery continued to gain national and international acclaim, with solo exhibitions by Barbara Kruger (2001), Christian Boltanski (2002), Steve McQueen (2004), Ryan Gander (2008), and Michael Landy (2010), as well as the group touring show, 20 Million Mexicans Can't Be Wrong (2002). In 2002 Keith Tyson’s exhibition ‘Supercollider’ at the SLG was nominated for the Turner Prize, establishing the SLG’s position as a leading gallery showcasing the best of contemporary art.

During this period the SLG also made a successful bid to the Arts Council’s Stabilisation Programme, and in October 2003 separated from Southwark Council to become an independent charitable trust managed by a board of trustees. In recognition of the gallery’s significance as a centre of excellence, in the same year, the Arts Council agreed a tenfold increase in revenue funding. It was also in 2003 that architects Stanton Williams and artist Ori Gersht were appointed to develop an architectural plan to enhance the SLG building. The initial phase of this building project was completed in 2004 with the opening of the gallery’s first ever dedicated education space. The project also saw the improvement of the gallery’s visitor facilities and the provision of better access to the building for disabled visitors.
