People who have saved this event:


For 'Three Floors Down: In the Studio', Borough Road Gallery will be divided in two: with one half becoming a studio space for the Gallery’s first Artist in Residence, Susan Sluglett, and the other dedicated to a display of works from A David Bomberg Legacy – The Sarah Rose Collection selected by Sluglett and the Gallery. Sluglett will be based in the Gallery for three months, making new work inspired by 'A David Bomberg Legacy – The Sarah Rose Collection'.


In the 1940s and 50s (when the University was known as Borough Polytechnic), the celebrated artist and teacher, David Bomberg, taught his legendary art classes in the life-drawing studios three floors above where Borough Road Gallery is now situated. Bomberg was passionate about the importance of art within society and about supporting artists in their careers. The aim for the residency is to continue Bomberg’s legacy by inspiring new work and supporting the development of an artist and their practice, whilst at the same time offering the opportunity to engage with, understand, and enjoy 'A David Bomberg Legacy – The Sarah Rose Collection' in new, unexpected and creative ways. To give an extra chance to see the project, it has been extended for two weeks until 14 March. Whilst Sluglett won’t be working in the studio, the traces of her residency will remain, alongside documentation and the accompanying display of works from 'A David Bomberg Legacy – The Sarah Rose Collection'.
