Sculpture in the City is an urban sculpture park, set amongst the architectural landmarks in the City’s insurance district. This dynamic project, where artworks are installed for up to a year, responds to the area’s ever-evolving urban environment by making use of newly created public spaces, or spaces previously unused or inaccessible. These sculptures create an art trail woven through the contemporary towers and historic alleyways of the City’s oldest working district. The sculptures add new layers of meaning, playing with the area’s identity and encouraging visitors to see this part of the City in a new light.
Tours of the sculptures, led by the Sculpture in the City team, will give visitors insight into how the sculptures were carefully chosen and installed to juxtapose and create a dialogue with the surrounding architecture and rich history of the area.
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)
