Forman’s Smokehouse Gallery is proud to present The FishWick Papers, an exhibition of works by 50 members of the studio East London Printmakers, inspired by the liveliness and colour of the Hackney Wick area and its printmaking heritage. Artists have researched how Hackney Wick presents itself at this moment, the history and future of the area, the many lives of people we have never known and will never know, their trades and stories, and they have also taken inspiration from Fish Island and H Forman and Son’s Smokehouse itself.
The exhibition has been recommended in the First Thursdays Top 5 Exhibitions and Events list for September 2011.
