Access is a series of group shows initiated by fine art and curating students from Goldsmiths MFA, taking place between April 1—19.

Dispersed across Deptford in window fronts of local businesses, project spaces and online, it began as an effort to make the participating artists’ work available to Deptford’s communities when local art spaces had to shut due to the pandemic. This provoked a broader conversation about the kinds of bonds a largely international group of students can form with the neighbourhood that hosts them.

The 10+ exhibitions display paintings, sculptures, videos and prints by over 40 artists and curators. Locals and visitors can walk through Deptford to discover these exhibits.

We wish to thank all the businesses and locals involved for their support of this exhibition and we look forward to welcoming you to Access.
