In our next free CHELSEA public programme talk, writer, curator and urban researcher Paul Goodwin talks to artists Sonia Boyce, Barby Asante and Peckham Space Director Emily Druiff. What would you ask them?

Take part in this discussion, which seeks to explore how curation can meet education in a hybrid gallery space…

Sonia Boyce & Barby Asante: Towards a Hybrid Gallery Space

Wed 11 July 6-7.30pm, FREE

This free panel discussion sees Paul Goodwin, writer, curator and urban researcher chair discussion between Emily Druiff, director of Peckham Space and artists Sonia Boyce and Barby Asante, investigating a new model that brings together curatorial and educational fields. This talk aims to address the questions: to what extent are these practices considered as art? How do these practices relate to terms such as ‘community’, ‘socially engaged’ and ‘dialogic or relational’ art?

Sonia Boyce, AHRC Fellow and artist will present Network, a film recently commissioned by Peckham Space which worked with young people from Visual and Performing Arts, part of Southwark Children’s  Services. Sonia will also reflect on her recent research ‘The future is social’ where she will discuss ‘how art emerges through collective and often conflictual encounters.’

Barby Asante will present South London Black Music Archive, an artwork recently commissioned by Peckham Space that worked with young people from Leaders of Tomorrow and which will tour to the Tate Modern in November this year. Barby will talk about her practice in relationship to ‘openness’, how and when this takes place and why it is important.

Emily Druiff, will talk about the commissioning process and propose a move towards a ‘hybrid gallery space’. Peckham Space is London’s newest  purpose-built public gallery dedicated to commissioning location-specific artworks made in partnership with community groups. It opened in June 2010 and is located on Peckham Square, London SE15 and part of Camberwell College of Arts, University of the Arts London.
