The Society has been granted special access to a curator-led tour of the new Drawing Room Gallery in Bermondsey.
Set up in 2002 by curators Mary Doyle, Kate Macfarlane and Katharine Stout, the gallery has a long history of showcasing artists of international standing as well as emerging promise. Their recently-opened space is part of The Tannery; a mixed-use development that has been designed by Coffey Architects, featuring housing, artists’ studios and the public exhibition space, arranged around a central courtyard.
Visitors will get a chance to explore the first show in the new building – UNBUILD: a site of possibility – which considers the impact of buildings on our bodies, our minds, our memories and our dreams. The richly varied work of Jessie Brennan, Ian Kiaer, Tanoa Sasraku, Emily Speed and Do Ho Suh proposes a range of physical, emotional and political responses to buildings, as places and ideas, that offer us several paths to explore.
