New Exhibition at Campbell Works

World Without End – Scotty Enterprises

23rd January 2015 – 8th February 2015

Presented as part of the curatorial collaboration Subterranean Futures, between Berlin based gallery / artist collective Scotty Enterprises and Campbell Works, eleven of the Scotty members will present new work developed in direct response to the themes and issues raised by the narrative of Subterranean Futures – Living between dystopia and utopia.

Berlin and London, two capitals caught up in an endless process of gentrification. As the prosperity of a city rises and falls over the decades so too does the daily experience of those who inhabit it. These two cities are at very different stages in this perpetual cycle with Berliners “only” facing rising rents while London is being turned into a kind of Disneyland for investors who have no intention of ever living there. Could this be the future for other European cities, or indeed other global cities? or is the economic growth of one capital at the cost of others?

Gallery hours Thursday to Sunday, 12noon – 6pm and by appointment

Campbell Works 10th Anniversary

Saturday 29th November 2014  5– 10pm

To celebrate 10 years of projects, exhibitions and events at Campbell Works, Kiko has selected and curated 22 works by 18 artists, drawn primarily from the Campbell Works Collection, created by some of the most exciting artists working today. In 2004 the gallery launched with its inaugural show, The Good, The Bad, and The…, since then we have had the privilege of working with around 250 artists in over 70 exhibitions and projects, with over 2500 participants taking part in a curatorially diverse range of activities including, workshops, peer critiques, film and discussion evenings, not to mention the many others who have attended events and visited the gallery.

10 years therefore presents itself as a timely opportunity to share our sincere gratitude to everyone who has supported us over this decade, contributing their time, effort, and invigorating conversations that have aided to the ongoing Campbell Works project, there are so many of you, you know who you are, and we thank you all.

commonconversationsOver the next few months SNUG and the  Boiler House Community Centre are running 3 discussion sessions to celebrate the wonderful diversity of thought, backgrounds, faiths and other things in the Cazenove area. This is part of Hackney Museum’s Side by Side project and funded by the Paul Hamlyn Foundation.

The aim of these sessions is to provide opportunities for dialogue and exchange and, in the process, experience that we all have so much in  common. We are planning these sessions to be stimulating, informative and in turn help deepen our mutual understanding and respect. To make them as enjoyable and interactive as possible they will be run by experienced facilitators from the Boiler House Community Space and Public Service Works (

Dates and times

1.       Our Journeys and place  Sunday 23rd Feb            2 – 4pm at the Boiler House

People have moved in and out of this area for millennia and we all come from  somewhere! Participants will be invited to talk about personal /familial journeys. Discussions will look at the main prompts and forces behind personal journeys and how important place is. We’ll also look at the Cazenove area and places that are important within that for whatever reason.

2. Festivals/ Celebrations & Creativity: Sunday 23rd March       2- 4pm at the Boiler House

Throughout the year we all have key festivals and occasions. Yet we often know very little about what each other are celebrating and why. This session will provide an opportunity to share  and get to know more about each others’ favourite festivals and celebrations, in a creative way.

3. World cafe – Understanding more about each other  Sunday 27th April      2 – 5pm at the Boiler House

The third session will use ‘Open Space’ or ‘World Cafe’ techniques to help create interesting and positive discussions around particular themes, as suggested by those attending and earlier sessions.

All at the Boiler House community space , George Downing Estate, N16 6BE. Map is here:

It’s all free, and open to everyone. But to help us have some idea of numbers in advance, please let us know you are coming  by:  e-mailing
