Description

As part of Nocturnal Creatures, artist Marisa Ferreira will speak about her work Series Industrial Windows I that takes inspiration from an industrial site in Northern Portugal and reflects her recent work themes, deindustrialization and ruin, to comment on the rapid urbanization and capitalist development of the region. Marisa will be reflecting on the urban landscape where memories of the industrial past are confronted with contemporary artistic production.

Marisa will be in conversation with artist Richard Wentworth, who himself has exhibited twice in Sculpture in the City.

The converstation will start at Cullum St where Series Industrial Windows I is sited and may then move to the seating area under the 'Cheesegrater'.

To attend the talk, book your place here. Note the talk is free but space is strictly limited so booking is essential.

About Sculpture in the City

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.

Sculpture in the City is delivered by the City of London Corporation in partnership with Aon, Aviva, Beaumont, Bloomberg, British Land, Brookfield Properties, CC Land, Hiscox, London & Oriental, Nuveen Real Estate, Tenacity, Tower 42 and TwentyTwo.

The full line-up of artists is as follows: Salvatore Arancio, Reza Aramesh, Elisa Artesero, Shaun C Badham, Jyll Bradley, Nathan Coley, Marisa Ferreira, Leo Fitzmaurice, Kevin Francis Gray, Clare Jarrett, Juliana Cerqueira Leite, Michael Lyons, Nancy Rubins, Nina Saunders, Jennifer Steinkamp, Do Ho Suh, Jonathan Trayte (autumn 2019), Patrick Tuttofuoco and Lawrence Weiner.
