MUDLARK opened at ArtHub Studios on 11th Sept 2018 – a self-produced, self-funded exhibition, and the culmination of my year-long project photographing the artefacts London’s community of mudlarkers have found on the River Thames foreshore.
My application to the Thames Festival Trust was accepted to be included in the programme for ‘Totally Thames Festival 2018’ - a month-long line up of events held in celebration of the river.
In 2017 I photographed finds from the collection of prolific mudlarker, art historian and curator Florrie Evans (@flo_finds) and asked if she would curate the exhibition – she accepted!
Florrie’s help and experience was hugely beneficial to the success of the exhibition – curating and labelling (by hand!) the hundreds of historical artefacts we had on display, plus organising our four evening event speakers, each very experienced mudlarkers and highly knowledgeable and passionate about London’s history: @tidelineart | @jasonmudlark | @rockthemudlark | @tedsandling
