Market Gallery

Many of the shops in The Market Place, Southwark Park Road, had become empty and though one or two market stalls continued to operate, the place felt abandoned and was failing economically.

In the lead up to major environmental improvements planned for autumn 2010 by Southwark Council, ACAVA working with the local authority, took over one of the shops and opened it as a gallery for artists mainly from its nearby Biscuit Factory Studios.
