Geffrye Museum, Haggerston Friday May 24 2013 10:00 - 17:00

The lives of a group of people living in a recent housing development in north London is the subject of this exhibition. Between 2006 and 2009 the old Arsenal football stadium was converted into Highbury Stadium Square, which comprises more than 700 flats arranged around the former pitch (now a communal garden). Photographer Simone Novotny homes in on the people living in 30 flats within the complex, and her show includes photography, film and sound recordings of the residents as they attempt to build a community.
