For the Slade’s 150th anniversary celebrations, artists and recent  Slade alumni Nia Fekri and Mataio Austin Dean worked with three East London schools, to create this banner that places the pupils and their ideas of ‘home’ into UCL’s architectural, historical, and intellectual footprint.

During workshops, held in the South Cloisters, UCL, pupils made monoprints that represent themselves, their families and communities. The prints were sewn onto the banner, filling the seemingly abstract spaces and gaps in William Wilkins’ architectural plans. In this way, the pupils project themselves into the very foundations of UCL, weaving themselves quite literally into the fabric and future of the institution.
