Sculpture in the City is back for its 11th edition, and as a member of the exhibition Partner Board we’re delighted to see the City of London once again transformed into a public gallery.
This free, outdoor art exhibition provides an opportunity to experience and engage with world-class contemporary art and showcases works by established and emerging artists, with each piece selected for its ability to create a relationship and dialogue with the complex urban environment of London’s Square Mile.
On show this year are new works from eleven contemporary artists as well as six sculptures that remain in situ from last year’s edition alongside two permanent acquisitions. The works are comprised of different forms, mediums and sizes, from Jesse Pollock’s life-sized traditional English grain store steel sculpture, The Granary, 2021 (pictured), to Oliver Bragg’s series of bench plaques dotted around the City forming part of In Loving Memory, 2020.
These and many more works around the City are available to explore now free of charge, at any time of day, on any day of the week.
A free digital guide to Sculpture in the City is also available through Bloomberg Connects, which features artists speaking directly about their work and provides a new way to explore all eleven editions of artworks on display, both in-person and virtually.
The 11th edition of Sculpture in the City can now be found on the app, with the past ten editions also available to view. Download the app via Apple Store or Google Play or visit https://www.bloombergconnects.org/.
