About Gallery No.32:
“Gallery No.32 is an artist-led outdoor art space in SE London directed by artist-curators Meg Stuart & Kieran Idle. Gallery No.32 offers a free exhibition space for artists to explore the broadest possibilities of their practice. Free to show and free to view, art is offered to new audiences directly in the public realm, upturning the typical white-wall model. By taking artists out of the institution and placing them in the public landscape, Gallery No.32 is altering how art is seen, and who art is for, digging the tracks for a new art-world. Through opportunity, connection and access, Gallery No.32 is rewilding the art scene from its [grass]roots.”
The Winter Sculpture Park is based across a large expanse of out-of-use farmland in Bexley, South East London. The London Loop, a busy public footpath, runs through the upper field. Additionally, trains run alongside the upper field into and out of London, making works visible from the carriages.
The exhibition will open in January 2023 (exact date TBC), running for around 8 weeks. A public programme will be developed alongside the exhibition including workshops, guided visits and artists talks. Artists are encouraged to participate with the public at all levels, in relation to their artwork.
