Tower Hamlets Council in partnership with Whitechapel Gallery are proud to present a new public art commission by artist Shiraz Bayjoo in Globe Town, Bethnal Green, East London.
Installed on the side of Clynes House in Globe Town in July 2023, the work is a large colourful photographic collage of archival materials that speak to the rich history of Tower Hamlets and the contemporary character of the area and its residents.
Bayjoo’s proposal for the site was selected by a public vote and the final design draws upon discussions between Bayjoo and the Globe Town community during the summer of 2021. Conversations between the artist and local residents focused on the memories and connections inspired by archival images reflecting social, cultural and religious histories of the area.
