at Peckham Multistory Car Park

Bold Tendencies has commissioned six major large-scale new works for 2012 by:

Laura Buckley (b. 1977 in Galway, Ireland), Sarah Cain (b. 1979 in Albany, NY, USA), Carter Mull (b. 1977 in Atlanta, GA, USA), Peles Empire (a collaborative work by Katharina Stoever (born in Germany in 1982) and Barbara Wolff (born in Romania in 1980)),Mary Redmond (b. 1973 in Glasgow, UK) & Martin Westwood (b. 1979 in Sheffield, UK).

The accompanying Architecture Programme commissioned by Bold Tendencies, designed by Practice Architecture and built by Practice Construction consists of the Auditorium, built of straw and sited between the concrete slabs of level 7 & 8, a timber Foyer at the entrance to the project on Level 7 and Frank's Cafe and Campari Bar on Level 10.

The 2012 Live Programme of music, dance, theatre, film and literary events is entirely free. Bold Tendencies are collaborating with local organisations Southwark TV, The Elephant & Nun Festival, PAMI (Peckham Artist Moving Image Festival) and Copeland Book Market. Curators Paul Purgas, Lucy Reynolds, Nina Cristante and Elise Lammer have been invited to devise projects specifically with the site in mind. New partnerships have also been developed in dance with Sadler's Wells, film with Skawinski & Marshall, with Musarc—part of the Faculty of Architecture and spatial design at London Metropolitan University—and in classical music with a specially commissioned new performance by the Bold Tendencies Orchestra.

Founded in 2007 and now in its 6th year, Bold Tendencies welcomed over 60,000 visitors in 2011. Committed to supporting the vision of artists and actively engaging audiences, admission is free with audiences ranging widely from local residents to international tourists.
