Called The History Train, a horse parade is the idea of artist Alan Kane and will feature six horse-drawn carts. Mr Kane, who has a studio in Great Yarmouth (Britain), said he wanted to make “an art history and transport history collision” and celebrate the newest art by delivering it in a traditional way.

The procession is in part inspired by horse parades that took place in Norwich in days gone by, and for the modern day spectacle Mr Kane has created unique horse brasses to decorate the horses from designs submitted by local people.

Kane’s prior Home for Orphaned Dishes (2011) constituted a different significant archive project; a floor-to-ceiling display which celebrates a forgotten moment of popular craft revival. The 1960s and ’70s saw a resurgence in traditional wheel-thrown, glazed stone and slipware pottery in the typical rustic earthy tones of that era. Patted, squeezed, pinched and pressed, these frank ceramics became a fashionable alternative to mass production and modernist design.
