Old Mayfair Carpet Gallery
London SE1 1JH
Three emerging, local artists - Patrick Staff, Chris Land and Eden Mitsenmacher - converted the former Mayfair Carpet Gallery at 301-303 Borough High Street into a temporary project space and contemporary art gallery for 6 months, from October 2009 to April 2010, exhibiting a number of young and emerging London artists and curators, as well as groups who are local to Southwark and surrounding South London. The not-for-profit project opened to the public in mid-January with the exhibition SOUTH TOWER SOCIAL. The extensive exhibition programme providing opportunities for emerging London artists and curators to stage regular performances, film screenings and interior and exterior interventionist installations. The project acted as a form of regeneration, both in regards to using a building that has been empty for a number of months, and as a focal point for the local community to discuss the role of such projects and the function of temporary art spaces.
