Contemporary art and design to celebrate 21st Dulwich Festival


I’m excited to announce Herne Hill based Cavaliero Finn curates two shows for local art & design lovers to mark the 21st Dulwich Festival.

Contemporary art and design lovers alike should head to Herne Hill and the sumptuous Belair House in Dulwich on the weekend of May 10th and 11th where two exhibitions curated by contemporary art and design company Cavaliero Finn will take place as part of the 21st anniversary celebrations of the Dulwich Festival.



Belair House

Located in the heart of Dulwich, Belair House is South East London’s most exciting new Bar, Dining and Social space, this is where you’ll find Exhibition number 1.   Immerse yourself in works from over 20 of Britain’s finest, up and coming contemporary artists and designer-makers.   If you’ve time on your hands, why not attend one of the workshops or talks over the weekend?  Sunday 11th, 2-3pm Jordan Cluroe and his partner Russell Whitehead, aka The Two Lovely Gays, will be on hand to talk to you about how you can create an environment for growth and happiness.
