HammersmithLondon Welcomes The Borough's Newest Public Work
'Hammersmith Poem' by Robert Montgomery
The Lyric Hammersmith in partnership with Hammersmith and Fulham Council have commissioned a new work by conceptual artist and activist, Robert Montgomery. The installation entitled ‘Hammersmith Poem’ explores modernist and cultural ideals set amidst the iconic brutalism of Hammersmith Town Hall. The work, created especially for its unique location ’embraces a place and a moment in time that is epitomised by the architecture. The work is very specific to the special building’ as quoted by the artist in an interview the The Quietus.
Mongomery’s Hammersmith Poem is the first piece to be unveiled in a programme of ground-breaking new public artworks across the borough. Hammersmith Poem will be on display outside the Town Hall until 1 July 2017.
