The Street: Whitechapel Art Gallery

The Whitechapel Art Gallery commissioned General Public Agency as writers to produce a series of contributions their landmark project The Street – a year-long series of international artists’ commissions in and around Wentworth Street, also known as Petticoat Lane Market. General Public Agency’s contributions explored the policy landscape affecting Wentworth Street, firstly through an investigation into the spatial policy and encroachment of the City’s financial district, and secondly through economic policy and an investigation by artist Kate Rich into contemporary commerce routes for the fabric traded in the market.
