View Tube Art: Sparked 2011-12


Inspired by the public art pieces in the London 2012 Olympic Park, Sparked is an eight-month educational exhibition series as part of the View Tube Art Education programme, from October 2011-May 2012.

The View Tube sits on The Greenway in East London, next to the London 2012 Olympic Park, it is a community arts and education venue, with a cafe and bike hire.

Sparked is funded by The Legacy List, a new charity established to support the long term cultural, social and physical regeneration of London’s future Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park and its surroundings.

Don’t forget our film screenings this Sunday 12th February of Neville Gabie’s latest work Twelve Seventy.

With Neville’s unique access to the venues and workers on the Olympic Park, Twelve Seventy features exclusive footage and interviews on the Park.  We meet Olympic Park bus driver Sam as she swims the length of her bus route in the Aquatics Centre, andintroduces us to life ‘the other side of the fence’.   

*Please note, due to engineering works the DLR network is closed for the entire weekend on Sat 11/Sun 12 Feb.  You can still easily reach View Tube by foot or bicycle, with the nearest stop at Hackney Wick Overground, one stop from Stratford.  Check the TFL website to help plan your journey.*

If you missed the launch screenings this weekend for the Sparked exhibition with Olympic Park Artist in Residence Neville Gabie, then don’t panic as we will be screening Twelve Seventy every Sunday for the duration of the Sparked exhibition.

Twelve Seventy is the new film from Neville Gabie featuring previously unseen footage of the Olympic Park Aquatics Centre and the wonderful story of Sam the bus driver, who was amongst the first to swim in the Olympic pool.

Screenings of the 27 minute long film are upstairs at View Tube every Sunday until 18 March at 1pm and 1.45pm, no booking is necessary.

Sparked with Neville Gabie is open daily at View Tube from 9am-5pm until 18th March 2012. Entry is free.  A free family day runs as part of this exhibition on Saturday 18 February from 10am-3pm.
