Contemporary Collection

The South London Gallery’s art collection is divided into the contemporary collection comprising approximately 145 works from post 1970, and the historic collection, embracing all earlier pieces. Today the SLG’s historic collection is managed by Southwark Council as part of the Southwark Art Collection. Much of the contemporary collection was acquired in the 1990s when the SLG began to collect contemporary works by artists such as Tracey Emin and Gavin Turk. You can see highlights from the SLG's contemporary collection below, click on Artist or Year to see all the works available online.
