Arthur Dooley

BY BOB GAUNT
@ VOL 5 ON JUN 13, 2013

Bob Gaunt tells us about the artist Arthur Dooley, a janitor turned sculptor. His story seems influenced by writer Jacques Rancier, whose book reflects the redistribution of the social order, which Dooley immitated in his change from low value employee to independent artist. Gaunt explores Dooley's stations of the cross series, which evoke a mix of traditionally christian and labor-conscious communist thinking.

Based on a painting by George Stubbs, the story tells of a bet made by the Duke of Cumberland, in which he was later aided by the gift of a cheetah from his nephew, King George III.

Global Night in Manchester

Here's today's last poster addition to the blog, for Manchester's PechaKucha Night Vol. 6, that wasn't held on our PechaKucha Global Night, but rather a few nights later, and still followed the theme of "hidden heroes." You'll of course find more posters on our PechaKucha Night Poster Tumblr, and all Global Night posters can be found here.
