Bold Tendencies

SET on top of a disused multi-story car park in south London, the Peckham-based institution Bold Tendencies hits the London hemisphere again tonight with its international contemporary sculpture show.

"Bold Tendencies is a fantastic exhibition of contemporary sculpture in a spectacular setting. It is also a particularly brilliant example of the next generation of curators and artists working together voluntarily to make something exceptional happen in London".


In collaboration with Tiwani Contemporary and CCA Lagos, Nigerian artists Abraham Onoriode Oghobase and Emeka Ogboh will be displaying their works in response to the architecture of the car park and its surroundings.

The popular Franks Café and Campari Bar designed by Practice Architecture (Paloma Gormley and Lettice Drake) will have its usual place alongside the sculptures on the roof, as well as the unveiling of an auditorium, built out of brass, gold and straw and a billboard kiosk of polythene and paper designed by postgraduates from Kingston University School of Architecture and Landscape.

And what better way to enjoy the setting and the sun than with an ice cold beer? Becks have given 5,000 free beers to the show. Special musical guests are expected too.

Bold Tendencies, founded in the summer of 2007, welcomed 45,000 visitors over 2010 from local residents to international tourists, with the vision of actively engaging audiences.

Munira Mirza, Cultural Adviser to the Mayor says: "Bold Tendencies is a fantastic exhibition of contemporary sculpture in a spectacular setting. It is also a particularly brilliant example of the next generation of curators and artists working together voluntarily to make something exceptional happen in London".
