On September 14 1814, the lawyer and amateur poet Francis Scott Key wrote what would become The Star Spangled Banner, the national anthem for the United States of America.
Incorporating an installation, a parade float, a studio production and a series of public events, This Is It will attempt to capture and unpick the way we recognise, record and respond to history that has happened, is happening now and will happen in the future.
We’re hosting several events at The Royal Standard. See what’s on and book a space here.
A new film by Tether features within Oliver Braid’s exhibition at The Royal Standard, ‘My 5 New Friends’.
“The exhibition at The Royal Standard will juxtapose newly commissioned short films by David Hoyle & Lee Baxter, Patrick Staff, Maayke Schurer, Roxy Topia & Paddy Gould and Tether who have been interpreting the evolving narratives alongside meticulously hand crafted ‘gift objects’ created by Oliver Braid, one for each of his new ‘friends’, all re-presented in a bespoke installation environment designed by It’s Our Playground.”
