Original plans are on hold however please read below for what was planned for the exhibition - which was due to be part of Glasgow International Festival 2020. The festival is now postponed.
At 240-feet long, the Easterhouse Mosaic was one of the largest handmade murals in Europe, well-loved locally and one of the most significant works of post-war public art commissioning. Unveiled in 1983 and widely celebrated, it nonetheless fell into disrepair and was de-commissioned in 2004. Platform commissioned collaborative artist duo Zoe Walker and Neil Bromwich to uncover the radical working-class history of this lost community artwork.
Through an exhibition and a series of performative walks, Walker & Bromwich were planning on bringing physical fragments of the mosaic back to life through re-enactments and eyewitness stories. From Platform to the ruins of the wall at Lochend Road the artists and residents plans were re-staging the mosaic’s five-act narrative of work, housing, education, socialism and ecology.
