In November 2014 the Art Assassins and REcreative Editorial Board were invited to take over the first floor galleries at SLG, conceiving and curating their own exhibition Invisible Hours.

The REcreative Editorial Board developed an alternative archive room documenting the key themes behind their past projects, as well as exploring future plans for the young people’s programme. While the Art Assassins built a workshop and showroom where they experimented with creating their own street wear brand.

The group worked with artists and designers; Eilis Searson, Amber Jones, Racheal Crowther and Samara Scott to design and produce a range of T-shirts, bags, wallpaper and trainers throughout the show, transforming the gallery space over course of the exhibition.

The title of the show originated from discussions between the Art Assassins and REcreative Editorial Board whose aim for the show was to reveal the ‘invisible hours’ they spend working on projects at the South London Gallery.

“After-school, between jobs, extra-curricular; young people find themselves in an ambiguous space, trying to work out who we are and what we are going to do ‘in life’ or in the art world. How can we measure those invisible hours spent in the gallery?” – REcreative Editorial Board.
