Goldsmiths Centre for Contemporary Art
The art college that launched many of the Young British Artists’ (YBA) careers opened its new public art gallery complex, the Goldsmiths Centre for Contemporary Art (Goldsmiths CCA) in September 2018. Designed by the Turner Prize-winning architecture collective Assemble, Goldsmiths CCA is located in a redeveloped Grade II-listed building on the college’s campus and boasts eight gallery spaces. The gallery makes wonderful use of the building, a former bathhouse, and puts on an impressive roster of artists from all over the world, with the aim to enhance Goldsmiths’ reputation for excellence and innovation in the arts. When you visit, don’t miss the most exciting of the galleries – an iron-lined Victorian water tank that’s become a striking background for contemporary art. And make sure to peek into the former swimming pool, now used as studios for the students of Goldsmiths College.
