Golden Years

Sadie Hennessy's Golden Years is inspired by the pop culture collections of Peter Blake (who grew up locally and attended art school in Gravesend, where he started his own pop culture collection). The co-commission will fill a series of shop windows in Gravesend with people’s own collections of memorabilia and ephemera, accompanied by a gold ice cream van broadcasting the stories behind those collections.

The work is a co-commission with Gravesham Borough Council.
