Art is Your Human Right

This week we visited the William Morris Gallery to take a look at the Art is Your Human Right exhibition.

Created by Bob and Roberta Smith (pseudonym of Patrick Brill, contemporary artist and founder of the Leytonstone Centre for Contemporary Art), the exhibition is a reaction against arts cuts in schools.

Using moving image, sculpture banners and a campaign van the exhibition argues that all schools should be art schools and that music gives children power.

The exhibition is accompanied by a new film called Art is Your Human Right: why can’t politics be more fun? that explores the artist's hopes and fears for the future.

We thought the exhibition was really amazing and powerful. If you can get to the William Morris Gallery (a beautiful education centre and gallery in Walthamstow) you should check it out.

On the 3rd of December the gallery opens it's doors after hours for a special event that we will definitely be attending! You can view the exhibitions and enjoy a PoP Campaign DJ set, video pieces from Bill Drummond, storytelling and craft sessions, poetry from Luke Wright and Roger Huddle and (most importantly!) wine from Vine Collective.
