Event Details

Please join us for the opening night of RECORDINGS, an exhibition by Alpa Depani supported by Winston Churchill Memorial Trust (WCMT) and the British Council.

How do we get to know a place? How do we observe its singularities and how can we record them?

During the summer of 2017, Alpa travelled to New York, Tokyo and Hong Kong as part of a research Fellowship awarded by WCMT and the British Council for her self-initiated project ‘Bottom up approaches to small scale public realm in dense global cities’; a comparative study of community driven space in New York, Tokyo and Hong Kong, learning lessons for London.

Spending 10-12 days in each city, Alpa walked and looked, applying each day the same methods of recording.

This exhibition acknowledges that process of urban exploration and presents the resultant maps, sketches, writings, and sounds. The quick, but incisive, recordings are both representation and analysis, they build a narrative of each city’s cultural and physical relationships with its public realm. 

As part of a short introduction to the exhibition, a member of WCMT will talk briefly about the Fellowship programme and the type of global research it enables.

A small publication collating drawings, photographs and writings from the cities as well as findings and recommendations will be available for purchase on the night.


The exhibition will run until Friday 9 March.

This event is free and open to the public.
