The municipal gallery is found far from London key art-activity places, but has an impressive contemporary art collection: Alfredo Yaar, Sarah Lucas, Christian Boltanski, Antony Gormley and others. Ten exhibitions are showcased each year: five on the main floor and the rest at the back wing. It mostly profiles young avant-garde post-modernist artists.
South London Gallery’s plain looking floor covering hides the XIX century parquetry floor designed by Walter Crane, the famous Art Nouveau era illustrator. The fragment displays a different wood patterned inscription reading 'The source of art is in the life of people'.
