This exhibition marks the culmination of The Peckham Experiment: A Centre for Self-Organisation, a Heritage Lottery funded project led by the Art Assassins, the SLG’s young people’s forum who worked with the Pioneer Health Foundation, the Wellcome Library and the Science Gallery at Kings College, Peckham Vision and the Wilderness Wood.
The Art Assassins are a group of young people aged between 14-20 years old who meet every Tuesday afternoon 5-7pm at the South London Gallery. The group work together with contemporary artists, designers and filmmakers to create a programme of events for other young people and a wider audience. Art Assassins’ projects are wide ranging and are always led by the members. Together the group have directed their own short films, recorded a radio show, curated an exhibition, developed a video game and much more. To find out more about the Art Assassins, take a look at their current and past projects here.
