Preparations for Year 5 of the popular public art exhibition Sculpture in the City are well underway and will returns in summer 2015 with a selection of contemporary art pieces in and around the Square Mile.
The 14 artworks that were on display in a free exhibition in the EC3 area have now been removed to make space for the fifth edition of Sculpture in the City
Set amongst London's iconic architectural landmarks, such as the Gherkin by Norman Foster and the Lloyd’s building by Richard Rogers, this open air exhibition draws visitors into the City transforming the EC3 insurance area. Watch CNN's short film or the Sculpture in the City 2014 film for an overview of the project.
In its fifth year, Sculpture in the City aims to enhance our urban environment with cutting-edge contemporary works from leading artists sited in both busy thoroughfares and quieter, green spaces.
For the first time the Cheesegrater will be used as the base the complementary educational programming run by Open-City which will inspire schoolchildren during the project installation.
Sculpture in the City is a unique collaboration between the City of London Corporation (the elected body which looks after the Square Mile global business district around St Paul’s), local businesses and the art world, providing the opportunity to engage new audiences with established and emerging contemporary artists.
Sculpture in the City is delivered through a partnership between 22 Bishopsgate, 30 St Mary Axe, Aon, Aviva, British Land, Brookfield Office Properties, Hiscox, Tower 42, Willis and WRBC Development UK Limited with the additional support of project patrons MTEC, Price & Myers and Leadenhall Market.
