Differences in Common

Saturday, May 11th, 2019

This exhibition by 100 local people living in Greenwich is an outcome of a series of community photo walks facilitated by eye4change, a charitable social enterprise. The project focuses on what new and existing communities have in common while recognising the value of diversity.

People from a range of backgrounds, abilities and experiences came together with each employing the camera as a tool for creative expression, storytelling and a means to connect, share and increase a sense of belonging.

Never Set Eyes on the Land

Friday, April 26th, 2019

The Partition of India in 1947 resulted in the largest mass migration in human history. 14 million Hindus, Muslims, Sikhs and Christians, were displaced. This lit the fuse for a series of events that not only changed the Sub-Continent but also Britain forever. Partition carries a living legacy in the UK and across the world and this is one of the last opportunities to hear and learn directly from the generation who experienced this climatic upheaval.

Never Set Eyes (on the Land) follows the 2016 production of Dr Blighty exploring the story of wounded WW1 Indian soldiers who convalesced in the Royal Pavilion Brighton. The exhibition takes its name from a line in W.H. Auden’s caustic poem, ‘Partition’, written 20 years after the boundary lines of the Sub-Continent was drawn up by a British civil servant.

Capturing a part of this momentous event in 20th-century history, Nutkhut has worked—supported by the Heritage Lottery Fund—with Partition survivors, community groups, schools, heritage volunteers and artists to create this installation.

This exhibition is open at the Stephen Lawrence Gallery from 30th April to 17th May 2019 | Free

Private View: Wednesday 8th May, 6 pm.

For Walls with Tongues

Monday, April 8th, 2019

This exhibition of street murals from 1966 to 1985 reveals the influence of muralists on the expansion of art in public spaces since the 60s and presents their lives and experiences through oral history. It celebrates the history of the mural movement in the United Kingdom and its influence on 20th-century culture, largely overlooked by the art establishment and historians.

In 1960s Britain, artists produced a profusion of street murals that became a backdrop for local celebrations, encouraging a sense of place and expressing local pride. Many muralists saw their work as part of the wider Community Arts movement, using their skills to facilitate social reform and develop radical alternatives to Gallery Art. At around the same time, external murals were appearing across the world. In the USA, in particular, neighbourhood murals gave voice to people’s aspirations.

For Walls with Tongues is compiled and curated by Greenwich Mural Workshop, a seminal arts organisation based in Greenwich.

Open 10 May – 2 June 2019 | Monday to Sunday, 10 am – 5 pm

Free seminar: Tuesday 14 May, 1 pm – 5 pm | Reserve your place here

The seminar will include presentations by artists who pioneered this form of street art followed by a discussion.

An exhibition by:

Stephen Lobb & Carol Kenna of Greenwich Mural Workshop

Rib Davis – oral history

Ben Wiedel-Kaufman – researcher

Volunteer interviewers: Maya Finkelstein Amrami, Dr Hazel Atashroo, Catherine Ireland Farren, Emma Middleton-Stirling.
