East End Scores
The Cass Foyer Gallery will be hosting East End Scores from 10 November – 2 December 2016 as part of photomonth, with a private view of the exhibition on 10 November 5.30-8pm.
Curated by David Boulogne, East End Scores presents four personal views of the East End in relation to the London 2012 Olympics, with work from artists Susan Andrews, David Boulogne, Chris Dorley-Brown and Mike Seaborne.
Four years on from the London Olympics and after the recent Rio Games, the artists felt it was necessary to look back and reflect on this so-called “rejuvenation”. What was the area like before the works started? What was the everyday reality like during the works? What has been the legacy so far?
Each photographer focused independently on particular subjects with a unique methodology that reveals their creativity, dedication and love for the area. Today, this collective show aims to challenge conventions by multi-layering the artworks in their form and content. This is why you will find prints, installations, screen-based slideshows and a storyboard. Some works will re-appear from one support form to another, whereas some artists will choose to display two separate bodies of work.
