Sculpture in the City (SITC) is an urban sculpture park showcasing internationally renowned and emerging artists, nestled amongst the tall buildings of the City’s insurance district.
Experience this year’s edition at our first ever City SculptureFest on Saturday 30 June. Discover the sculptures with family-friendly tours and trails, or get creative by taking part in an exciting range of activities exploring sculpture and architectural design.
The festivities take place in an area that originally housed a medieval maypole - architectural and engineering collective Scale Rule respond to this with a contemporary centrepiece for the event - ‘City in a Sculpture’. This collaborative structure will incorporate work from students participating in SITC workshops and visitors can add their own contributions throughout the day. Nearby, a colourful Tatty Devine Craft jewellery making activity inspired by Maypole festivities will create a vibrant reminder of the area’s history.
Other activities include a sound workshop by Archivate Collective, a drawing activity led by artist Julie Leonard, a family treasure trail and photography tours. An exhibition of creative work by students taking part in the SITC education programme celebrates their contribution and shares their unique perspectives and experience of this urban environment.
Sculpture in the City is delivered by the City of London Corporation in partnership with Aon, Aviva, Blackstone, Bloomberg, British Land, Brookfield, CC Land, Generali Real Estate, Hiscox, TH Real Estate, Tower 42 Estate and Twentytwo.
The female artists of Sculpture in the City 2018 are supported by and part of Women: Work & Power (www.cityoflondon.gov.uk/womenworkpower.gov.uk)
