Over 30 years after he left prison for corruption and 15 years after he died, the former Labour Leader of Newcastle City Council T Dan Smith remains a controversial figure. He secured international recognition for his post-industrial vision of Newcastle upon Tyne as the Milan or Venice of the North.
City State looks at the achievements of the leftwing group that took control of the city in the late 1950s and the disputed post-war vision of a charismatic regional politician. The exhibition brings together specially commissioned landscapes by internationally acclaimed photographer John Davies and an audio-visual created out of Amber Films’ archives and their interviews with Smith and fellow councillors.
