Canal as part of The Street, a project conceived by the Whitechapel Gallery

30 March 2008 - April 2009

Canal has been invited to take part in the year-long project which uses Wentworth Street (home to Petticoat Lane market) as a site around which international artists Minerva Cuevas, Jens Haaning, Henry VIII’s Wives, Bernd Krauss, Shimabuku and Nedko Solakov have been commissioned.

Canal's contribution will consist of responding - whether fairly directly or metaphorically - to the projects proposed by the other artists, to the local context as well as to the premise set by the curators Anthony Spira and Marijke Steedman. Canal's interventions will take place throughout the year.
