ABOUT 38b

38b is an occasional series of exhibitions and events programmed by Luke Drozd and Eva Rowson in their flat at 38b Peckham Rye.

38b started in 2010 out of a desire to create a space for ourselves and artists we admire to show new work and try out ideas, and the most immediate, cheapest way to do this was to transform our living room into an exhibition space. Some artists have preferred to strip the room of any trace of our inhabitancy and use it as a white walled gallery space and others have enjoyed playing with the domesticity of the setting.

We continue to host exhibitions at 38b Peckham Rye but as we also start to programme projects beyond the flat our intentions remain the same - to provide an accessible and uncostly space for artists to experiment and exhibit.
