New Permanent Garden by Gabriel Orozco
This October the South London Gallery (SLG) opens a new permanent garden designed by Gabriel Orozco.
Created over the past two years by the artist, with support from 6a architects and horticulturists at the Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew, this extraordinary garden will be open to the public every weekend and used by invited groups during the week. It introduces a new, planted entrance to the garden for residents of Sceaux Gardens housing estate, where the SLG has run art programmes for a number of years. The opening of the garden marks a pivotal moment in the SLG’s history of working with artists on ambitious and challenging projects which aim to inspire, attract and connect with large and diverse audiences.
