SLAM Fridays are the late night opening of galleries across South London on the last Friday of every month. Exhibitions and events are hosted in a variety of spaces from old churches to converted warehouses. This October SLAM Fridays will take place in and around the Bankside area of London.
SLAM Friday Bankside coincides with the launch of the new fourth print edition of the South London Art Map; freely available from all SLAM galleries, the final page of the map holds the also newly launched SLAM Passport. Users are encouraged to get a stamp at each SLAM gallery they visit. Once ten stamps have been collected prizes can be claimed – this month’s prizes are tickets to the Affordable Art Fair Private View
Alongside the map, SLAM also run SLAM Friday Tours, a great place to start for first time visitors. SLAM Friday’s 'Big Draw Art Tour' will start at The Jerwood Drawing Space, this year exhibiting the 19th Jerwood Drawing Prize, the tour will then continue, coinciding with 'Dining Room Drawing Club' who will be facilitating 'quick draw' opportunities at each space and along the way, encouraging attendees to ‘put down their i-pads and pick up their HB’s’. and galleries in front rooms all of which can be visited outside of the tours as well. Drawing materials and drawing aficionados will be on hand at the varying venues for attendees to document their experience at this SLAM Friday.
