Over the course of 23 years the Cabinet has established a singular reputation for exhibition programming and live contemporary art events, as well as curatorial work in the museum world, with an increasing tendency to feed peer galleries in Europe and the USA.

The Cabinet was founded in Brixton by Martin McGeown in 1991 and together with Andrew Wheatley constituted the Gallery as a limited company. In 1999 the gallery moved to Clerkenwell and, until its move to the currnet premises in Vauxhall Gardens, maintained two sites, the second opening its doors in 2002 on Old Street. It collaborates closely with curators and public museums throughout Europe and North America in the conception and presentation of exhibitions by its artists.

The Cabinet presently represents 25 international artists and manages an annual exhibition and events program. The Cabinet has produced 7 Turner Prize nominees: James Richards, Tris Vonna-Michell, Jeremy Deller, Martin Creed, Gillian Carnegie, Mark Leckey, and Enrico David, three of whom were winners.


Finetuned has worked with  Cabinet on their web presence since launching their first website in 2008. With an intentionally reductionist aesthetic,  the site features many of the conceits of modern web design without the usual fanfare. The pared back aesthetic belies the complexity of the site where almost every page has a different layout.

We are very excited to be working with the Cabinet on the next iteration of their web presence to be launched later this year.

Charles Asprey, with the assistance of Andrew Wheatley and Martin McGeown, established 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 offers a landmark for the arts in Lambeth, as well as helping drive regeneration of the surrounding area.
