Doing Bold Tendencies 2022

With June comes the promise of alfresco art and rooftop drinking. So why not combine both at Bold Tendencies, a not-for-profit which supports artists to realise site-specific projects and present live performances from Peckham’s Multi-Storey Car Park.

This year the rooftop will welcome artworks by Martin Creed, Paloma Proudfoot and Dominique White, among others. Look out for Richard Wentworth’s Agora, a reflective design which covers the entire surface of the rooftop car park; and Adel Abdessemed’s Bristow, a 2016 sculpture of a pigeon with explosives strapped to its back. Also on display is Nan Goldin’s Picnic on the Esplanade, Boston from 1973, an homage to the extended family of drag queens that the artist lived with during the 1970s, and those she was close to during the 80s and 90s in Boston and New York.

There’s also a diverse summer programme of events, ranging from classical music concerts to dynamic dance performances. Those with kids should check out the creative workshops, which are available to everyone for free. For a light bite and a tipple or two, make a beeline for Frank’s Café. A summer favourite, it serves classic cocktails, draught beers and wines, as well as a delicious selection of seasonal snacks. See you there.
