Our #railwayarches have been home to a variety of businesses in the past. The Brixton Art Gallery, run by a collective of local artists at the time and host to a range of innovative exhibitions, once occupied 21 Atlantic Road, #Brixton, during the 1980’s.
Next Thursday, 22 June Andrew Hurman, one of the co-founders of the #gallery, will be bringing a part of the original collective back to 21 Atlantic Road. Marking what would now be the 40th anniversary of its opening, he will be hosting an #exhibition showcasing an assortment of #art once displayed in the gallery, and launching his new publication, “Brixton Art Gallery 1983-86: An Illustrated History.”
The event is a great opportunity for you to discover a past part of Brixton’s community. Entry to the #popup exhibition is free, and it will be open between 12.00 -16.00 from Thursday, 22 June - Saturday, 1 July at 21 Atlantic Road, Brixton SW1 8HX.
