Auto - italia opened in Peckham in March 2007 and after seven exhibitions over the past year we have relocated to the Old Kent Road. This enormous new space has fostered dreams of projects that are monumental in both scale and significance. In Epic we want to acknowledge this sense over-ambition, but also express the importance of the project to us.

For the inaugural show at the new space the artists invited to participate have all contributed in some way to the previous incarnation of auto-italia south east, or to the development of the next stage in the life of the gallery. Creating an environment where artists can work with their peers in the exhibition and discussion of each other's work is central to the role of the gallery. This show is an opportunity to explore the evolution of the gallery and the group of artists involved, and to expand this group by introducing the space to a wider audience.
