Legacy I – Forman’s Smokehouse Gallery’s first sculpture show.
LEGACY I will take place within Formans Salmon Court. The Court itself offers a foundation to respond to the historical and industrial qualities of the area as well as being in close proximity to the Olympic Stadium, the beacon for development and change within Hackney Wick.
The exhibition will respond on many levels to the industrial and temporal characteristics of the area with the Artists considering the shifting environments within Hackney Wick from a dialectical perspective, distinguishing different types of environmental experience.
Legacy I offers emerging and mid career artists the opportunity to exhibit large scale and site specific works and aims to be an annual event in the East London Arts Calendar, supporting and encouraging critical debate within the arts and bringing in to focus the effect of regeneration to artistic communities such as Hackney Wick.
