Tom Hunter will be showing work from his Holly Street project as part of the Capital Cities exhibition at the London College of Communication, London.
18th of April until 2nd of May 2018
Join us to celebrate the launch of this exhibition Tuesday 17 April. Free and open to all.
London College of Communication is pleased to present Capital City, an exhibition and series of events that examines the relationship between money and property in London, and its effects on all our lives.
Students from the College’s Media School have collaborated with artists, campaigners and researchers. Work produced looks at the political and economic factors that effect London’s skyline, property market and housing stock.
With backgrounds in journalism, photography, critical theory, filmmaking and publishing this exhibition brings together over 50 students and members of staff with exciting mentors and collaborators including artists Tom Hunter, Kennardphillipps, the film producer Dionne Walker, the researcher and photographer Will Jennings, and Steve Goodrich and Ben Cowdock of Transparency International. Working in multi-disciplinary groups, pieces have been produced in a range of media, from photography, film and text to collage and installation.
The work addresses challenging and sometimes controversial topics such as estate regeneration, the influx into the London housing market of money from overseas sources, the effect on our lived environment of monumental glass towers and debates over gentrification. These are issues that have an impact on all of us across London, including here in Elephant & Castle, currently the site of multiple redevelopment projects including a proposed new building for London College of Communication.
