Founded in 1967, Stockwell Depot heralded the emergence of the London artists’ studio movement and gained international recognition as a center for British abstraction. For over 25 years, this disused former brewery in South London functioned as both cooperative studio and exhibition space. Artists associated with the Depot—Roland Brener, Jennifer Durrant, David Evison, Katherine Gili, Peter Hide and Roelof Louw, among many others—held differing and often competing attitudes toward art. The ambitious work made and shown at the Depot tells the story of late modernism in Britain, tracing a period full of formal experimentation and critical debate. Incorporating interviews with 10 artists alongside a major essay by curator Sam Cornish, this is the first catalog to examine the artists’ activities within a historical context and track their development through the Depot’s pivotal annual exhibitions. With interviews by curators David Waterworth and Sam Cornish and preface by curator Jon Wood.
