22 hours ago

‘Our ambition is to make Lewisham a must-visit destination for anyone interested in the best contemporary art’ says Sarah McCrory, Director of Goldsmiths CCA.

The recently opened centre is located on the campus of Goldsmiths, University of London. Goldsmiths Centre for Contemporary Art welcomes all and hosts top-notch exhibitions, projects and artist residencies by international artists,  enhancing Goldsmiths’ already illustrious reputation for excellence and innovation in the arts.

The £4.6million project to transform the building was made possible thanks to the help of a number of supporters. These include alumni like Damien Hirst, Sarah Lucas, Sir Anthony Gormley and Bridget Riley.

Goldsmiths CCA is 1000m2 in total, with 700m2 of exhibition space across eight different galleries including a rooftop gallery in the former cast-iron tanks which supplied the swimming pools. Architecture collective Assemble, who won the Turner Prize in 2015 oversaw the renovation of the new space.
