For contemporary and period art and design, here are three events in south east London you simply cannot miss this May...
Cavaliero Finn Contemporary Art and at Belair House.
Contemporary art and design lovers alike should head to Belair House in Dulwich on the weekend of 10-11 May when a new exhibition, curated by design company Cavaliero Finn, takes place as part of the Dulwich Festival. Set against the backdrop of this beautiful, Grade II listed Georgian mansion, works will be on show from over 20 of Britain’s finest, up-and-coming artists and designer-makers, including Gill Rocca, Rebecca Oldfield, Matt Chambers and Daniel Reynolds. Visitors can attend a series of workshops and talks over the weekend, including a session by Jordan Cluroe, finalist on the BBC’s Great Interior Design Challenge and his partner Russell Whitehead, with whom he runs interior design company 2 Lovely Gays. There will also be a series of artists workshops for children aged 6 and over.
Cavaliero Finn will also be hosting a second contemporary art and design show at its home-cum-gallery at 268 Croxted Road in Herne Hill, running during the Dulwich Festival Artists Open House on 10-11 May and 17-18 May.
