Our first monthly event was at Corsica Studios and it’s been there ever since. It acts as a platform for artists to showcase their work outside of college crits or the hyper-competitive gallery system and provides an unpretentious and fun environment for people to interact with and discuss artwork. The Off Modern club recognises that people aren’t one dimensional; in a single night you could take part in a performance, experience a site specific installation and mosh to a band or emcee. –Will Hunt, founding member Off/Modern, 21 October 2010 for It’s Nice That.
Off/Modern was a collective made up of artists, writers, promoters and curators based across South East London. From 2008 until 2012 the group put on monthly nights at Corsica Studios in Elephant & Castle and publish a quarterly arts magazine.
