16:9 is a billboard attached to the yard-side of Kingsgate Workshops and visible from the street and from Kilburn Grange Park. Kingsgate Project Space commissions new works from emerging and established artists specially for this site. This summer, we have commissioned Joy Gerrard to make a new work for this site. The piece is called "The North is Next" and is a drawing from a photo-collage of the crowd in Dublin Castle on 26th of May, 2018.
