Borough Road Gallery
London SE1 0AA
Borough Road Gallery is a new gallery that opened in London South Bank University’s Borough Road building in June 2012. The gallery was financed by a grant from the Heritage Lottery Fund to renovate part of the Borough Road building, and to devise a two-year programme of exhibitions and events that explore A David Bomberg Legacy – The Sarah Rose Collection.
A David Bomberg Legacy – The Sarah Rose Collection is a collection of paintings and drawings by the artists David Bomberg (1890-1957), Dennis Creffield (b. 1931), Cliff Holden (b. 1919), Thomas Holden (b. 1957), Edna Mann (1926-1985), Dorothy Mead (1928-1975) and Miles Richmond (1922-2008). In total, the collection includes over 150 works, spanning a period of nearly 100 years. The oldest piece in the collection is a page of Cubist Studies by David Bomberg, made in 1913-14. The most recent is a charcoal Jerusalem Wedding by Dennis Creffield, 2009.
The Borough Road Gallery holds approximately two exhibitions a year, relating to the collection, in addition an events and outreach programme.
