Cabinet has been a fixture on the scene for 20 years, moving from Brixton and Farringdon to its current spot on Old Street. But, despite being a favourite of heavyweight curators for showing great artists like Enrico David and Mark Leckey, it keeps a low-key public profile.

Charles Asprey, with the assistance of Andrew Wheatley and Martin McGeown, are establishing a new home for the world-renowned art gallery, Cabinet, in Vauxhall. Located on the edge of Spring Gardens (formerly Vauxhall Pleasure Gardens) Cabinet’s gallery will offer a landmark for the arts in Lambeth, as well as helping drive regeneration of the surrounding area.
Cabinet and Charles Asprey have a vision for the gallery that will bring an artistic rebirth of the famous local gardens, once a historic centre for leisure and culture in London. The building will host two floors of exhibition space with one floor exclusively for shows, whilst the other will incorporate exhibitions into a communal area, alongside the gallery’s archive and library. In addition to their exhibition programme Cabinet will host talks, readings, screenings and other events. There will be living quarters for an artist in residence which could be used by five or six artists each year.
In addition, there will be 3 floors of high quality residential accommodation.
