“From Flax to Freelance : the history of 36 Lime Street”

Today 36 Lime Street is a collective of over 40 workshops, occupied by freelance artists and other creative practitioners. The building dates from the 1840s and in its 165 year history has witnessed some of the Ouseburn’s greatest events and changes.

Join Ouseburn expert Mike Greatbatch on a tour of the building, external and internal, and learn something of its fascinating history.

 Saturday at 8pm. The tour is for around 25 people and those interested will meet in the Gallery.

New Broadsides for The Late Shows @ 36 Lime Street Gallery

The Late Shows @ 36 Lime Street Gallery will be exhibiting  In Cahoots, an exhibition based on collaboration.

Presented as part of The Late Shows 2012. www.thelateshows.org.uk

The Late Shows marks the international event ‘Museums at Night’, which takes place across Europe. For further information visit www.culture24.org.uk/museumsatnight.

Theresa Easton will be presenting a series of traditional broadside responding to an article by Matt Carr, Riots, materialism and the political elite.

In the article, Carr refers to the expenses claims by MP’s and the lavish articles furnishing second homes.

Education Secretary Michael Gove, blamed last years riots on, ‘a culture of greed and instant gratification, rootless hedonism and amoral violence’.  Between 2005-07 Gove claimed £7,000 furnishing his north Kensington home:

£331 Chinon armchair

£493 Manchu cabinet

£134.50 on a pair of elephant lamps

£750 Loire table

£432  birch Camargue chair

£238.50.birdcage coffee table

Historically broadsides were printed onto one side of a large peice of paper advertising events and proclamations.  Popular in the 1700’s Theresa Easton uses  the motif of the Tree as a reference to political satire of the early 1800’s.
