Art Explorations on line - Peckham Plus - led by Gail Astbury
6pm-7pm Wednesday 29 April on Zoom. Read more and book your place
London Art Explorations are a series of walks investigating artworks displayed in outdoor settings in London, created and led by Gail Astbury, public art enthusiast as well as a practitioner in her own right.
We’ve adapted to the times and are thrilled to be offering a guided public art tour for all to enjoy from home. The tour will be held on Zoom using Google Streetview, and will be recorded too. It will take approximately 60 minutes, and there will be a chance to ask questions during the tour.
Discover artwork in public spaces in and around the ‘coolest neighbourhood’ in south London. We travel to Peckham and neighbouring streets, capitalising on the opportunities that Google Streetview affords, revealing works of art that have been installed or painted (some formally, some not) within this artist-rich Southwark suburb. Works by Antony Gormley, Richard Wentworth and Tom Phillips, as well as other including street artists. Gail Astbury brings a knowledgeable slant to the artworks and the people who created them, having herself worked with many of the artists and specifically in Peckham.
