Never Set Eyes On The Land

Part of Gateway

22 - 24 June 2018

Type: Installation


Never Set Eyes on the Land focuses on the largest mass migration in the history of the world and its impact on the heritage of people and communities in the UK. The installation will bring to life a hidden community of Partition survivors who made this part of London their home over 50 years ago. Featuring 70 items and interpretations, this immersive experience will include poetry, letters, visual art, film, spoken word responses, evocative smells, sounds and music. The installation will be presented inside a newly adapted and designed shipping container with eye-catching external décor.

Marking the 70th anniversary of the arrival of the Empire Windrush at Tilbury Dock in June 1948, this programme explores the contemporary resonance of this historic occasion against the background of a changing city. With performances straddling Greenwich Peninsula and the Royal Docks, linked by an inspiring journey aboard the Emirates Air Line, Gateway invites audiences to reflect on the continuing story of London’s diversity and the movement of people across borders.
