OFF MODERN a South East London based arts collective, curates a group show, FRONTIERS.
Elephant & Castle finds itself on the geographical frontier of South East London. The show will take this as a starting point and use it to explore the idea in all of its permutations.
A group of young artists are to exhibit a mix of painting, sculpture, video and installation, all concerned with pushing forward the frontier of South East London in to the centre of the capital, keen to celebrate the fresh artistic talent from the area.
FRONTIERS will also represent a culture-clash, the gallery being as it is sandwiched between the wealth and prosperity of the city centre and monolithic council estates of the area.

OFF MODERN have already hosted a series of successful art and music events at Corsica Studios and are rapidly becoming a hub for a new wave of artistic activities outside of the gallery system.
