GOLDSMITHS University will be exploring its relationship with the Lewisham community in a new exhibition.

The collaborative exhibition, organised by the department of visual cultures at Goldsmiths, in partnership with the Goldsmiths Art Collections and the Lewisham Local History Society, offers an insight into the area as a centre of creative work over the past century.

Organiser Dr Jenny Doussan said: "Such histories, produced by virtue of inhabiting the same space, are often forgotten, yet their presence remains in the sometimes invisible accumulation of objects that comprise our environs.

"The Shared Histories exhibition restores visibility to a few such histories, bringing the past into the present and connecting dislocated spaces."

It is on displya at four sites - Goldsmiths' new academic building, 310 New Cross Road, New Cross Learning, and The Albany in Deptford. Interactive technology will allow browsing of objects across all four installations.

Goldsmiths & Lewisham: Shared Histories will run from April 24 to May 3.
