Bold Tendencies is a non-profit summertime commissioning project dedicated to showcasing new art by international artists. Held on the top four floors of a disused multi-storey car park in Peckham, South London with spectacular views across the city. Bold Tendencies is committed to supporting the vision of artists and actively engaging audiences. Founded in 2007, Bold Tendencies is free to visit, welcoming over 60,000 visitors in 2012, from local residents to international tourists. Press feedback has been universally positive, and leading figures from the art world have offered their praise.
Each year Bold Tendencies commissions site specific art. For 2013, the Bold Tendencies commissions will take the form of a fully integrated and overlapping programme of fixed works, experience based works and clusters of related happenings. The nature of this will be inter-disciplinary, befitting recent significant and current developments with an expanded definition of sculpture.
