Hannah Barry Gallery & Frank’s Cafe Return!

Frank’s Cafe and the Hannah Barry Gallery Bold Tendencies sculpture exhibition are back on the top four floors of the multi storey car park this summer from 30th June to 30th September. Frank’s Cafe opens 2nd July. Thereafter all opening days for exhibition and cafe are: THURSDAYS – SUNDAYS 11am – 10pm. See all details below.

This was one of THE happenings in Peckham last year – a fabulous experience. If you missed it then, try not to miss it this year. See here for some reviews from last year:

BOLD TENDENCIES SCULPTURE PROJECT is an annual exhibition held on the top four floors of the disused car park in Peckham, South London. The exhibition runs from June 30 – September 30, 2010.

BOLD TENDENCIES 4 will present new works by: Rachel Adams, James Balmforth, Nicholas Byrne, Juliana Cerqueira Leite, Matthew Darbyshire, Edward Fornieles, Lauren Gault, Anthea Hamilton, Alex Hoda, Sam Kennedy, George Henry Longly, Mohammed Qasim Ashfaq, Florian Roithmayr, Giles Round and Alexandre Singh.

Last year the project commissioned 14 works by new artists and had over 30,000 visitors in the three months it was open. For this fourth year, the structure of the project has been changed to reflect its position in the public realm and to encourage an ongoing conversation about new sculpture in London. An external council has been created through which individual sculpture projects are recommended, reviewed and commissioned.  

Frank’s Cafe and Campari Bar, designed by Lettice Drake and Paloma Gormley and run by Frank Boxer and chef Michael Davies, will return for a second year. The food at Frank’s is a reflection of the best available British summer produce – fruit and vegetables, meat and fish, cooked with consideration and presented simply.

Their firm Practice Architecture is a design-build practice working on small-scale projects with an emphasis on pragmatic design. Recent projects include Bench 1, an amphitheatre on stilts designed for the New Art Centre in Salisbury.
Frank’s is run by Frank Boxer and Michael Davies who met working at the Anchor and Hope in Waterloo. Head chef Michael Davies trained under Lawrence Tottingham currently of the Aumbry in Prestwich, and has been working at the Anchor for the last 18 months under Johnathan Jones. Frank Boxer established the successful Italo deli in Vauxhall with his father and has recently opened the Brunswick House Cafe also in Vauxhall
