Displaying photographs by Paul Trevor, “Brick Lane 1978” is a window exhibition at the Four Corners Gallery. Following the racist murder of Altab Ali in 1978, the East End’s Bengali community organised an uprising that Trevor documented on film.
There is an audio element accompanying Trevor’s Images. Participants can scan a QR code in the window, allowing them to listen to the memories of those who took part in the protests.
This exhibition is part of “Brick Lane 1978: The Turning Point”, a much wider three-year project. Four Corners is hoping to track down the residents involved in the protests, identify them, record their memories and ultimately create an extensive archive of 1978’s momentous events.
Pop down to the Gallery at any time to see the photographs, hear the testimonies, and find out more information about how to get involved.
