To celebrate the centenary of Dilston Grove, South London's foremost venue for site-specific artwork, members of the Bermondsey Artists' Group will be presenting sculpture, installation, painting, drawing, text- and lens-based work and performances responding to the building and its history. With their customary humour, wit and creative diversity, they will explore the titular notion of “that which has grown together”. Dilston Grove is the former Clare College Mission Church on the Southwest corner of Southwark Park and is Grade II listed. Designed by architects Sir John Simpson and Maxwell Ayrton, it was built in 1911 and is one of the earliest examples of poured concrete construction. Private View: Sunday, 6 March 2011, 2pm-5pm. Exhibition: Wednesday, 9 - Sunday 27 March 2011. Open Weds-Sun 12pm-6pm. Last Fridays: Friday, 25 March 2011, 6pm-9pm.
Performances: Sundays from 4pm, from Charlie Fox, Harald Smykla, Jane Deakin, Jane Colling and Sarah Reilly.
