Goldsmiths Centre for Contemporary Art

In this section


A new centre for contemporary art is coming to Goldsmiths in 2018. Disused Victorian-era baths and cast-iron water tanks are being transformed to bring contemporary art from around the world to South London.

Goldsmiths CCA building progress

Some of the spaces are going to be very exciting for artists to use, other spaces will be challenging. Hopefully the spaces will provoke or inspire different ways of working; Sarah McCrory, Director of Goldsmiths CCA

A new gallery for London and Goldsmiths

Goldsmiths Centre for Contemporary Art builds upon the university’s world-renowned reputation for art practice, providing an inspiring source of creativity and debate for artists, students and the public.

Hosting residencies for artists within a university environment provides the chance for the creation of innovative, ambitious works, whilst simultaneously contributing to new research.

Assemble architects

Turner Prize-winning collective Assemble are the architects working on the space that houses Goldsmiths Centre for Contemporary Art.

"The cast-iron water tanks have a powerful materiality which will be preserved and amplified, whilst new top-lit galleries will provide a rich spatial counter-point in an ensemble offering unique opportunities for the display of art." – Paloma Strelitz and Adam Willis, Assemble

Goldsmiths Centre for Contemporary Art is due to open to the public in 2018.
