For The Late Shows @ 36 Lime Street for one night only, Theresa Easton will be printing a series of Political Broadsides in collaboration with The Coalition Against the Cuts. All the broadsides printed on the night will be available to take away. Come along to Level 3 and see the work in action, leave a donation for The Coalition Against the Cuts and take your freshly printed broadside away. Also on the night, take part in a truely collaborative piece of work. Easton is inviting visitors to leave messages and suggestions for George Osborne, David Cameron, Nick Clegg and Phillip Green on post-it-notes to be compiled into an artist book at a later date. The event aims to raise some interesting conversations and questions!
Responding to the spirit of 36 Lime Street’s exhibition “ Incahoots“ calling for collaborative work between artists, Easton has been inspired by an article on the Coalition website by Matt Carr, ‘Riots, materialism and the political elite’. In the article, Carr makes comparisons between the arrogant greed of Michael Gove and the indoctrinated consumerism of the rioters. In the gallery space at 36 Lime Street, Easton will be exhibiting work in the form of wooden glass -fronted boxes, connected to the broadsides and conversations with Steve Marshal, a 36 Lime Street studio holder and longstanding union activist. The Late Shows mark the international event ‘Museums at Night’, which takes place across Europe. For further information visit www.culture24.org.uk/museumsatnight.
