BEARSPACE is a contemporary art space on Deptford High Street, exhibiting outstanding work by leading emerging artists.
BEARSPACE began as a project space in a previous public house ‘The Brown Bear’ on Deptford High Street. The gallery originally started from a belief in the potential of Deptford as an ‘arts destination’ and the enormous degree of artistic talent and self motivation of artists in South East London, recently described by the New York Times as ‘a boisterous concoction of blue-collar aesthetics and intermittent hipsterism’
Since that time the gallery and area has grown into a vibrant hotbed of activity. BEARSPACE artists are selected for their response to contemporary culture and philosophy, with a conceptual and narrative framework to their work. BEARSPACE prides itself on discovering really interesting artists early on in their career, and promoting them through gallery exhibitions, art fairs, curated exhibitions and collaborations.
BEARSPACE’s contemporary art space on Deptford High Street is open to the pubic at all times during exhibitions. In addition BEARSPACE has an exclusive viewing room in Greenwich where new works by gallery artists can be viewed at a time that suits you.
BEARSPACE will open the first art book boutique in South London, run by CT Pocket. This will show curated selections of books, by influential curators and art critics. CT Pocket @BEARSPACE will launch in September 2009!
