Bohola Men at the Whitechapel Gallery - Music & Live Words
Thursday 3rd February 2011
Set in Bethnal Green's Bohola House Bar, artist Denis Buckley's performance traces the decline of Irish communities in post-war east London . He combines historical narrative with clips from Philip Donnellan's film The Irishman: Portrait of Exile and Buckley's own A Rose for Jack Doyle.
A post show discussion with the artist and Professor Paul Long of Birmingham University, will concentrate on the legacy of Donnellan and Charles Parker and look at the profusion of a post war protest FOLK movement in visual art, broadcasting and film.
