I was lucky to visit the RHA to see the opening of Gerrard’s ‘shot crowd’ right before the (less fortunate) media event that was the Trump Presidential Inauguration. I wrote a few words about the relationship between the artwork and the News. I believe this is important work, and would love seeing such thought invoking pieces commissioned for secondary schools and public spaces of importance.
