For May Day 2022, Golden Lane and Barbican Estate residents collaborated to stage a community event (curator: Bev Bytheway), and residents were invited to create a protest placard, which might highlight a world emergency or crisis - or a more local issue affecting residents, such as the state of the estate itself.
The results are both mixed and marvellous, and this exhibition displays evidence of the thought and effort, as well as the spontaneity and creativity, of the people from two neighbouring estates who participated that day to express what mattered to them then.
Velorose is also featuring ‘Spectres of Modernism’ banners from the Golden Lane protest curated by Clare Carolin (including the work of Turner Prize-winning artists) and papier-mâché creatures made for the original event by students and teachers at the local Charterhouse Square School.
