an anti-gallery with a ‘nomadic curatorial process’. Candid Magazine

Taking its title and concept from Muriel Spark’s 1960 novel, The Ballad of Peckham Rye (TBOPR) uses the text as a starting point for working with artists to commission and produce new work that draws on, imagines or celebrates the distinctive architecture, geological monuments, histories and experiences of the area. Through major commissions and smaller projects TBOPR champion the work of emerging and underrepresented artists, often outside the context of traditional arts venues, to allow the creation of shared dialogues with the local community. Many of TBOPR’s projects are an artists’ first public solo commission in London.
