The South London Gallery (SLG) is thrilled to announce the grand opening of its new online shop, bringing the eclectic charm of its Main Building shop to the digital realm.
Nestled in the heart of South London at 65 Peckham Road, the SLG Shop has long been a beloved independent bookshop. Now, with the launch of its online counterpart on November 15, book enthusiasts and art aficionados can explore a carefully curated selection of fiction, poetry and radical publications from the comfort of their homes.
The online shop doesn’t stop at literature; it extends its support to local makers and artisans. From hand-thrown ceramics by Alice King to the thought-provoking publications of Kayfa Ta, the SLG Shop showcases a diverse array of products. The collaboration with artists like YARA + DAVINA and Gioz Ceramics adds a local touch, emphasizing the rich creative tapestry of South London.
One of the highlights is the exclusive limited editions by contemporary artists, including works by Rene Matić, Katharina Grosse, Lawrence Weiner, Rita Keegan, and Abbas Zahedi. These unique pieces, available online with special discounts for SLG Members and Supporters, contribute to the gallery’s mission of supporting contemporary art and ideas.
The online shop, a project developed with the support of Bloomberg Philanthropies’ Digital Accelerator for Arts & Culture, features regularly changing thematic collections. Whether it’s seasonal gift ranges, bestsellers, or artist editions, the shop embraces small businesses, underrepresented authors, and London-based creatives.
The SLG, a charity dedicated to the presentation and discussion of contemporary art, invites enthusiasts to explore the virtual aisles of its new online shop at shop.southlondongallery.org
