Saturday October 1: East London Photomonth launches
East London prepares for its own annual major photography festival, hosting more than 150 gallery exhibitions and showcasing the work of artists like Simon Roberts, Faseeh Sams, Rob Macdonald, Kerry Clark & Gemma Donovan, Andrew Graiger, Colin O’Brien and many more. The Photomonth also includes workshops, photowalks, a photofair, seminars, discussions, artist talks and events that combine entertainment and art. It probably involves much more than what Eastlondonlines’ server can handle, so be sure to check the official website for more info.
East London Photomonth: International Photography Festival: October 1 – November 30 2011.
Public launch of the exhibition that opens on October 1 to commemorate 25 years after the historic strike at Wapping in London’s Docklands. On January 24 1986, Rupert Murdoch’s News International group moved production of its four national newspapers to Wapping, sacking 5,000 production and clerical workers overnight. No journalists were sacked but more than 100, labeled the “refuseniks”, took a stand and walked out of their jobs. The exhibition that runs for just two weeks, features dramatic images, posters and memorabilia from those challenging moments for print and media workers. On October 4 Goldsmiths organizes a public talk featuring Nick Jones (former BBC industrial correspondent), Wapping strikers and chaired by Angela Phillips.
Goldsmiths Univerisity, New Academic Building.
Public talk “25 years of News International at Wapping”: October 4, 6pm.
Exhibition: October 1-14, Mon-Fri: 09:00-17:00, Sat-Sun:10:00-17:00, free admission.
Wednesday October 5: Marisa Anderson & Bridget Hayden Café Oto broadcast
The East End’s most underground venue team up with an emerging alternative webradio? Of course the allegiance in question should not surprise us. Dalston’s Café Oto knows talent when it sees one and NTS has already proved to be as eclectic as a radio cruising the oversaturated waves of London should be. Every Wednesday, from 12 to 1 pm, a member of the Oto team presents a show focusing on personal collections and live recordings from the venue. On October 5, the OTO-NTS Broadcast present the live set of Marisa Anderson and Bridget Hayden. The two performers presented a mixture of noise, guitar blues, gospel and the unexpected.
Tune in NTS radio every Wednesday 12-1pm.
