78 Lyndhurst Way was a squat in a Victorian-period house in Peckham, South East London, England, which was known predominantly as an art exhibitions space run by a group of young artists in their mid-twenties. The artists who initiated, 'Lyndhurst Way' exhibitions were James Balmforth, Bobby Dowler, Christopher Green, Oliver Griffin and Shaun McDowell. Lyndhurst Way is also renowned for being the nucleus which the Hannah Barry Gallery emerged from in January 2008. The Lyndhurst Way exhibitions began with '10 Rooms and a Sculpture Garden' on November 3, 2006, and closed with 'Bold Tendencies' ending October 7, 2007. The Peckham Pavilion, one of the first Unofficial Pavilions (Venice Biennale) represented the Hannah Barry Gallery at the 53rd Venice Biennale in 2009. This included many Lyndhurst Way artists including the core group. Lyndhurst Way is sometimes referred to as an art collective, the "core" group of artists have worked together on international group shows including "PECKHAMNEWYORKPARIS".[1][2][3][4][5][6][7]


Exhibitions[edit]

Seven of the exhibitions were held in the squat house at number 78 Lyndhurst Way, the Grade II listed Victorian building followed by two off-site projects initiated by Hannah Barry with spaces provided by Southwark Council. The first of which was held at the now defunct Area10 project space in Peckham, and the second and final exhibition being the inauguration of the Bold Tendencies Sculpture Project which was originally held on the rooftop of Sumner House, an old school building in North Peckham.[8]

Since the end of the 'Lyndhurst Way' exhibitions the core artists went on to be represented by Hannah Barry Gallery,[9] and the Bold Tendencies Sculpture Project continues each summer on the rooftop of Peckham multistory car-park.[10]
