FOUNDED IN 1984 BY THE BERMONDSEY ARTISTS’ GROUP, THE GALLERY HAS COMMISSIONED AND PRESENTED OVER 140 FREE EXHIBITIONS BY EMERGENT, OVERLOOKED AND ESTABLISHED BRITISH AND INTERNATIONAL ARTISTS.

BUILT AROUND THE RADICAL AGENDA OF FOUNDING DIRECTOR AND ARTIST RON HENOCQ AND HIS BELIEF IN THE POWER OF INCLUSION WITHIN THE ARTS, CGP LONDON EXISTS TO ENABLE ALL MEMBERS OF THE COMMUNITY TO FULLY PARTICIPATE AND HAVE OPEN ACCESS TO CONTEMPORARY ART.
