Lambeth’s original borough wide showcase for creative talent.

On the first weekend of October artists and crafts people across the borough of Lambeth will be opening their studio and work spaces to the public. Doors will be open from 10am to 6pm, 4th and 5th October and admission will be free. Dots will be added to our map as artists and makers sign up to this year’s event.Lambeth Open showcases the fantastic range of creative talent tucked away in our borough and is a great way to discover the various art spaces too often hidden in your neighbourhoods. Visitors will be able to see inside the artist’s studios and exhibition spaces for a unique personal insight into the individual creative processes. It is also timed to coincide with the first weekend of the neighbouring Wandsworth Open House event.

If you are an artist or craftsperson living or working in the borough of Lambeth and would like to exhibit please create an account and we will contact you later for details of where you will be showing.

Featured Artist – Duncan McAfee

Duncan McAfee is a London based, British artist, musician and teacher, working in a wide range of media and situations. Recent work has evolved to concentrate primarily on sonic work, often collaborative and/or participatory, exploring histories, identity and time, through stories, sound and music. A particular importance is placed on “voice”, whether as orator, communal singer, or deconstructed tool of communication. Duncan is also one half of the overlapping collaborative practice, The Miller and McAfee Press, working with artist and printmaker Andrew Miller.

Recent projects include a Cocheme Fellowship at Byam Shaw Cental St Martins and The Talking Trail for Aston Rowant Nature reserve, with Outdoor Culture and Natural England. National and international exhibitions include, Whitechapel, London; The Liverpool Biennial; Subvision Festival, Hamburg, Germany; Tou Scene, Stavanger, Norway; Frieze; London. I have also undertaken residencies and commissions for Natural England; Resonance FM; Whitechapel Gallery, London; UCL Museums Collections, London; E:vent Network, London; Artists in the City, Reading; National Institute for Medical Research, London.
