New Gallery Space

After a successful inaugural year of programming in New Cross, we are delighted to announce the gallery is moving to a new space in Deptford.

Castor will continue to focus on presenting ambitious and site responsive solo exhibitions by emerging and mid-career artists. The 2017 programme launches with a solo exhibition by Barry Reigate: Do Zombies Dance to Love in C Minor, opening on Friday 18 February.
