Presentation by Hannah Barry (Bold Tendencies, London)

On February 22, at 7 PM, British gallerist Hannah Barry will make a presentation Peckham, Bold Tendencies, and Our Gallery at the IZONE Creative Community. Hannah is a new resident at IZOLYATSIA between February 19 and 23, 2018.  

Bold Tendencies is a non-profit organisation which supports site-specific sculpture, architecture, orchestral music and opera facilitating the making of ambitious new work for a former parking lot rooftop in Peckham. Founded alongside a gallery in 2007, today it enables an annual world-class arts and cultural programme and civic space open to the public. Bold Tendencies animates its programme and the site for schools, families and the neighbourhood through standalone education and community programmes that take culture and civic values seriously. With immersive public spaces and spectacular views across London, the project has attracted more than 1.5 million visitors so far.

At her presentation, Hannah Barry will talk about managing an institution such as Bold Tendencies, revitalising an abandoned building, and engaging local community by attracting it towards contemporary art. 

Hannah Barry’s presentation will take place at IZONE, vul. Naberezhno-Luhova 8.
