Beaconsfield is a space for contemporary art based in the former Lambeth Ragged School.
Research activity is rooted in a long history of collaboration with individual artists and other national and international art institutions. The Directors, David Crawforth and Naomi Siderfin, conceive Beaconsfield as a concept rather than a place, curating a programme of exhibitions, talks and interdisciplinary events and working closely with artists to realise their creative aims.
Our unique historic environment consists of a large Upper gallery, a Lower gallery with public facilities, including our vegetarian café, the Ragged Canteen, and the Arch gallery, an adjacent project space. The organisation has an established presence in the Vauxhall Gallery district, with community schools and higher education institutions.
