introduction

spacer spacer spacer
  A year-long series of artists’ commissions in and around Wentworth Street. Home to Petticoat Lane Market, Wentworth Street runs from London’s financial district to Brick Lane.

Over one year, specially commissioned projects and events by Canal - a collective of artists & curators, Minerva Cuevas, Jens Haaning, Henry VIII’s Wives, Bernd Krauss, Shimabuku and Nedko Solakov will take place around The Street – just a stone’s throw from the Whitechapel Gallery.

The project launched in March by Bulgarian artist Nedko Solakov with a year-long lottery.

Independent writer and curator Lars Bang Larsen and General Public Agency, the interdisciplinary cultural consultancy, have been commissioned to explore the project, its broader implications and parallel historic and contemporary initiatives.

To see the commissions go to The Street‘s headquarters – The Shop - also home to live projects and events.
