A song for Luton – Tom Hackett and Julian Woodcock

Saturday 10 November, 1pm

Standing shoulder to shoulder outside the Storefront Tom Hackett and Julian Woodcock will wear hard hats and will take it in turns to recite the titles of pop songs connected with regrets and hope, for 45 minutes ( the duration of a classic album). The intervention aims to playfully balance the curious with the poignant, connecting to the core exhibition project theme. It will have the feel of a retro public information broadcast.
