Black MariaThe second commission of Relay, a nine-year arts programme in the King's Cross area, Black Maria is a structure created by artist Richard Wentworth and Swiss architecture practice GRUPPE that acts as a meeting place for discussion, performance and moving images. Launching on 12th February 2013 for a month initially, with the possibility that it will be brought back at a later date, Black Maria is reminiscent of an early film studio of the same name. Installed in 'The Crossing', the atrium that joins the historic Granary Building to the new Central St Martin's School of Art and Design, the temporary space provides a home for scheduled talks and screenings, but also a place where people can sit, talk, eat lunch and simply be.
