Bold Tendencies is a non-profit summertime sculpture project dedicated to showcasing new art by international artists. Held on the top four floors of a disused multi-storey car park in Peckham, South London, with spectacular views across the city, Bold Tendencies is committed to supporting the vision of artists and actively engaging audiences.

Founded in 2007, Bold Tendencies has welcomed over 45,000 visitors in 2010 (30,000 in 2009).

15 large-scale new works by international artists have been commissioned for 2011 by a specially appointed Curatorial Council and will be exhibited for three months.

Bold Tendencies is free to visit and has welcomed audiences from local residents to international tourists. Press feedback has been universally positive, and leading figures from the art world have offered their praise.

The popular Frank’s Cafe & Campari Bar designed by Practice Architecture (Paloma Gormley & Lettice Drake) occupies a temporary building alongside the sculptures on the roof. For 2011 we have commissioned two new structures for the space.

2011 will see the launch of two free audience programmes - a wide-ranging Events Calendar and Education for children and young people. Bold Tendencies is part of the Cultural Learning Alliance.

Bold Tendencies 5 is part of the 2011 ‘Year of Sculpture’, initiated by the Henry Moore Foundation.

In order to commission the sculpture, operate the site and run a comprehensive education and events programme we need to raise a minimum of £80,000. Central to this is a target of raising at least £7,500 through community funding and a patron programme, with sponsorship and foundations hopefully providing the balance. Your support and generosity is crucial to making this exciting project flourish in 2011 and beyond.
