This Monday, we at Happen Projects are launching Exchange Series, a sequence of 8 collaborative installations to mark this moment in Dalston.
We've paired 8 local artists / designers with 8 shops / services, to create a sequence of visual dialogues along the Kingsland Road.
The idea is to create a cultural crossover within each shop space, taking each artist out of their usual context and inviting them to work with the shopkeeper to develop a display that communicates with the shop's customers and those passing by, as well as with the neighborhood's creative community.
Above you can see 3 of those that have gone up so far... more will be appearing over the next couple of days.
Watch this space...
