Artists Melinda Gibson, Steffi Klenz and Duncan Wooldridge are the new curators for the public programme for Peckham 24. Starting from a reflection upon what an artist’s practice depends upon, this year’s programme will focus upon two forces: generosity and hospitality. The programme will bring together critical voices from both within and outside of photography, to discuss how the image connects to and affects the world at large, and how to support, critically and proactively, long-lasting artistic practice and discourse.
Uniquely, the programme will invite participants to engage in not only talks and discussions, but in personal conversations built around reading seminars, shared lunches, and culminating in a dinner supporting emerging practices. As part of this event, we have extended an invitation to a small number of Universities to put forward alumnus from the past 10 years who have not received the opportunities their work deserves.
The programme will draw upon the rich variety of debates within Peckham, London more widely, and across contemporary art and photographic practices internationally. Its format proposes a relaxed, informal and convivial environment, which fosters conversation, non-hierarchical debate and opportunities to build new allegiances and associations.
Throughout the day, seven different talks and events will be taking place. For more information and tickets, please visit:
