Richard Galpin‘s work is concerned with urban growth and transformation.
Richard Galpin‘s work engages with urban communities, food growing and local history, with an interest in urban commons past and present. He is founder of the Alberta Fruit Commons, co-founder and project manager of the Kennington Chartist Project and chair of trustees at Walworth Garden. His public artworks include a commission for the High Line in New York, a public park on an elevated freight-train line. His artwork has been exhibited widely in North & South America, and Europe, including the V&A and the British Museum.
For this talk Richard will reflect on the difference between a common and a park, and the historical importance of London’s green spaces as a place for people to assemble for celebration, debate, and protest.
