9 Brookmill Road, London, SE8 4HL
DX Gallery champions emerging curators and gives them the opportunity to realise an ambitious public installation in the space. DX Gallery is run by Deptford X as part of its year-round programme of exhibitions, events, residencies and off-site projects.
The gallery stretches for 20 metres alongside the pavement at the northern end of Brookmill Road, which connects Deptford Bridge with Lewisham, and is lined with queueing traffic almost constantly each day.
The gallery sits on the site of the old Seager Distillery and faces Carrington House, which was built in Deptford in 1903 as a Lodging House by London County Council, providing affordable accommodation for 800 single working men; by the time it closed in the 1980s it was partly used as a hostel for temporarily housing homeless people, but there were many long- term residents who had lived there for decades. Seager Evans and Co. (established 1805) was a London-based wine and spirits company. They specialised in distillation of gin, and their most famous product was Seagers Gin. In 1922 the distillery was moved to this site in Deptford and remained in use until the 1970s.
