Futures_after is an exhibition-residency by a Collective of 26 local and international artists from Goldsmiths University that transform the old Peacocks retail outlet, Catford into an experimental site for new Post-Capitalist imaginings and reflection on value exchange with our highstreets, each other and the world around us. Questions around the ‘Suburban Dream’ and it’s legacy emerge in Catford based artist Madeleine Famurewa’s soft sculptures inspired by Catford’s architecture, local artist Rhiannon Hunter’s filmworks capture urban wilderness as a space for reciprocity amidst ‘progress’, Beverley Duckworth sows seedlings into recycled fast fashion, Salman Khoshroo creates sculptures from shop debris, whilst Moritz Tibes and Sophie Sekine critically investigate proposals for alternative economic structures via video and participation. The exhibition features Sculpture, Video, Sound works, Performance and 2D mixed media works.

Margot has led the SLG through significant change and expansion in terms of its artistic and education programmes, visitor numbers, buildings and staff. She led the SLG’s RIBA award-winning expansion into a former fire station building which opened in 2018 and doubled the organisation’s footprint. The SLG has run extensive education programmes for many years, including a drop-in creative space for children on a neighbouring housing estate. During her tenure Heller has curated numerous exhibitions including those with Michael Armitage, Alvaro Barrington, Chris Burden, Ellen Gallagher, Ryan Gander, Katharina Grosse, Ann Veronica Janssens, Steve McQueen, Oscar Murillo, Danh Vo, and many others. She initiated the SLG's post graduate artist in residency in 2010, commissioned the SLG’s permanent artist-designed garden by Gabriel Orozco which opened in 2016, and acquired a significant work by Lawrence Weiner for the Fire Station building in 2021. The SLG was joint recipient of Museum of the Year 2020.
