Date: 12 June 2014

City workers enjoying a lunch break in Braham Street will be able to enjoy a backdrop of work by Cass students over the next few months.

An 'Image Wall' around the Aldgate Tower development will display work from The Faculty until the building is completed in November this year. The first set of images reflects the contents of The Cass Summer Show - which runs until the 6th July. A second set will include work form Postgraduate Students to accompany the Cass MA Show, and from The East End Archive. 

The present installation includes images by:

Clelia Giannuoli, Foundation Art and Design

The Cass would like to thank to Brookfield Multiplex, the building contractors for Aldgate Tower, for sponsoring this installation which was curated by Jen Ng of The Cass Projects Office and Michael Upton.
