ReFrieze: A unique Art and Citizenship project
To celebrate the 140th birthday of the Royal Albert Hall, the Hall’s Learning & Participation team asked students from Special and Specialist schools nationally to reinterpret the iconic Victorian mosaic frieze, that runs around the top of the building’s exterior. They were challenged to investigate and visually represent the changes that have taken place in the UK’s values and identity since the Hall was built.
By ‘stitching together’ over 600 artworks created by the students in response to bespoke project resources, photo digital artist Henry Reichhold has created ReFrieze: a 21st Century frieze as seen through the eyes of young people living in Britain today.
