The Dinner

Ram Quarter Wandsworth Neville Gabie has been commissioned by FutureCity on behalf of Greenland Developers to make a new work for the site of the former Young’s Brewery, Wandsworth, London. The work is due to begin in March 2017 and be completed by December 2017

Neville Gabie has been invited to make a new work which responds to the history of the former Young’s Brewery and to the sites future prospects as a residential and commercial development in the heart of London. The work he is proposing to make will be a re-staged Dinner at Wandsworth Town Hall based on a photograph of the Staff Christmas Dinner taken in 1948. The ‘guests’ for this re-staged event will include; former brewery employees, architects, planners, builders, and engineers involved in the transformation of the site, new residents, shop and restaurant tenants and members of the Wandsworth community.  Neville Gabie is working with Brickbox to develop this commission.
