Theaster Gates

We had lunch next door to the Currency Exchange Café, one of Theaster Gates’s projects in Washington Park, in what had been a secondhand bookshop.   He spoke over jambalaya of his extraordinary work of art, social activism and urban regeneration, pouring the money he makes from his art back into local projects in Dorchester:-

He spoke wonderfully of his work:-
