Southwark Park Galleries (formally CGP London) is an artist led gallery of contemporary art based across two venues in Southwark Park; The Gallery and Dilston Grove. 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.

Our mission is to foster career development by providing excellent opportunities for artists and curators to develop their ideas and practice through the supportive and professional presentation of their work in our unique park setting, integrated within a meaningful community and learning programme. We have a commitment to the promotion of contemporary artists and the positioning of their work in national and private collections.*

Southwark Park Galleries is a registered charity and Arts Council England National Portfolio Organisation, supported by the London Borough of Soutwark as well as relying on key support from various Trusts, Foundations, sponsors, sales of art, donations and venue hire to sustain our ambitious programme of contemporary art, community engagement and education.

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.

Over the last 32 years the gallery has hosted exhibitions and events by internationally renowned artists including Cornelia Parker, Richard Wilson, Marcus Coates, Ackroyd and Harvey, Grayson Perry, Eduardo Paolozzi, Anne Bean, Patrick Caulfield, Iain Sinclair, Andrew Kötting, Uta Kogelsberger, Tony Bevan, Mark Titchner, Matt Collishaw, Ben Rivers, Huw Locke, Stuart Brisley and Sutapa Biswas.
