First mounted on its lofty perch in 2007, Hannah Barry Gallery's Bold Tendencies has welcomed a great number of art lovers during the past years and its popularity seems to be on the up: the 2009 edition counted 30000 visitors, while 45000 people attended it last year.
This year the show will feature a collaboration with Kingston University School of Architecture and Landscape; postgraduate students will be showing their work as part of a permanent project base that will constitute precious support to the future shows.
Opening on 30 June 2011 and run until 30 September 2011 it takes place on the top floor of Peckham Multi-Storey Car Park. An ideal location for both the artists, who can envision their ideas in a vast and open space, and the visitors, who are offered the opportunity to discover the works of emerging sculptors while enjoying a spectacular view of London.
Practice Architecture, the architects who built and designed Frank's Cafe, have also designed two new structures for 2011, in addition to the restaurant and Campari Bar.
An Auditorium, built out of brass, gold and straw, will be sited between the concrete slabs of level 7 & 8 and a Billboard Kiosk of polythene and paper will stand at the exhibition entrance.
