Bosse & Baum

Who we are

Bosse & Baum was founded in 2014 by Alexandra Warder and Lana Churchill. The gallery occupies a unit in the post-industrial Bussey Building, in Peckham, South East London, and is expanding into online spaces. We are a commercial gallery seeking an active role in shaping art discourse by giving a platform to contemporary positions; representing an international roster of emerging artists whose work challenges dominant historical narratives and is socially engaged. We work to facilitate broader social access to art and contribute to the wider critical conversation on contemporary art through a public programme of exhibitions, talks and performances.

Why we do what we do

We encourage inclusive participation and conversation, whilst supporting the growth of the artists into a broader dialogue that includes private and institutional collections. We care greatly for our audiences of artists, collectors, curators, and all those interested in looking and learning, from seasoned professionals to curious newcomers. We continue to champion female artists: Bosse & Baum work with more female artists than male artists, still one of only a few platforms in the world to do so. We work to create the conditions in which experimental art practices can thrive, exhibiting challenging media such as performance and installation, and developing the models that secure their visibility in historically conservative markets.


Bosse & Baum is a member of Gallery Climate Coalition, an industry association which aims to promote sustainability and environmental reform within the art world. The company strives to improve its carbon footprint by examining all aspects of our business to find energy-saving, recycling and resource-sharing initiatives.

Bosse & Baum has been committed to closely monitoring its carbon footprint since its inception and has been committed to practising a minimum-waste operation. We, with a few continental exceptions, do not reply on an art fair model and observes strict reduced business travels roles. As well as measuring our carbon emissions, we continuously evolve and develop our policies and procedures to address the key, industry-specific concerns of travel, freight and exhibition production, which will help us move towards a more sustainable model.

Bosse & Baum has pledged to maintain a reduction of our absolute carbon emissions (in line with the Paris Agreement’s goal of keeping global warming to below 1.5°C), and to promote zero-waste practices. For 2023 we are evolving our commitments to keep pace with industry guidance from organisations such as the Gallery Climate Coalition. Reduction remains our top priority. Our Head of Environmental Sustainability, Alexandra Warder, oversees the implementation of these measures to achieve these reduction targets & drives the urgent actions to decarbonize and minimise waste in our daily operations and practices.
