Artists Paul Butler and Linda Jane James visited the gallery and talked about their work on various murals including the Cable Street Mural in London. This is the video of the conversation mostly with Paul.
Another video interview with more detail about the mural at Cable Street is here:
Images of the mural at Cable Street can be found via Google search. The mural represents the Battle of Cable Street which took place on Sunday 4 October 1936 in Cable Street in the East End of London. It was a clash between the Metropolitan Police, overseeing a march by the British Union of Fascists, led by Oswald Mosley, and anti-fascists, including local Jewish, socialist, anarchist, Irish and communist groups. The mural has been damaged by malicious attack various times and has been restored again, which is mentioned in the second video above. More information about this mural can be found at http://cablestreetmural.tumblr.com/.
We are always pleased to talk to people who come to the gallery to find out about them, their lives, their projects, and what they think, not just what they think about the work in the gallery. And if they are willing we record them on video. Do call in and you could be recorded too. Here are some of our recent visitors:
