The November CAStour will focus on the new, renewed and studio spaces in South London. We will visit Damien Hirst’s much talked about Newport Street Gallery, the renewed Gasworks studios, the Delfina Foundation, the South London Gallery and a gallery focused on performance art Gallery Lejeune.

Gallery Lejeune is based in SE22 — a short walk from Peckham Rye or East Dulwich train stations.
Gallery Lejeune is an exhibition programme set in a domestic space that is open by appointment and through events such as dinners, performances and talks. These programmes create a context from which to discuss notions of value and legacy in relation to collecting performative and ephemeral practices.
