CGP London: February 2016 Newsletter

Forthcoming at CGP London // The Gallery & Dilston Grove

Lung // Year-long series of events in association with Lux.

CGP London and Lux are excited to announce Lung, a new year-long partnership presenting a series of events across both CGP London sites in the heart of Southwark Park.

Since the 18th Century, the parks and green spaces of london have often been referred to as the ‘lungs of london’, providing physical and psychological breathing space for the inhabitants of a rapidly developing city.

Lung will provide a new regular space for the presentation and discussion of moving image and performance-based work throughout CGP London’s 2016 programme, in an informal, familiar environment, shifting as the seasons do.
