Goldsmiths Centre for Contemporary Art to Open in September

LONDON, ENGLAND—Goldsmiths Centre for Contemporary Art will open September 8 with an exhibition by Argentinian artist Mika Rottenberg, Gareth Harris reports for The Art Newspaper. Goldsmiths CCA has been in development since the 2014, whenTurner Prize-winning architects Assemble were selected to renovate the Victorian-era public baths on Goldsmiths’ south London campus. Sarah McCrory, curator of Glasgow International, was named director of Goldsmiths CCA in January 2017. Entry to Goldsmiths CCA will be free of charge.

Rottenberg’s exhibition, co-commissioned with Kunsthaus Bregenz and MAMbo – Museo d’Arte Moderna di Bologna, will be a “mini-survey” spread across Goldsmiths CCA’s seven galleries. The inaugural program will also include exhibitions by Estonian artist Kris Lemsalu, Alexis Hunter, the Chicago Imagists of the School of the Art Institute of Chicago.

Goldsmiths CCA will also host the Oak Foundation Project Space for “diverse faster-paced program” of exhibitions, performances, and collaborative projects connected to Goldsmiths’ academic program. “We’re hope to find a new path as London already has so many amazing institutions,” McCrory said. “There is enormous potential for collaborating with different university departments. There are 9,000 students and some of the world’s best academics here.”
