Curated by Caroline Worthington, Director of the Royal Society of Sculptors, the exhibition will showcase new specially commissioned, site-specific work from two of the UK’s most exciting contemporary artists. The exhibition marks The Line’s first collaboration with arebyte Gallery and anticipates its long-term residency at London City Island as The Line extends its programme of outdoor sculpture to include the plinths at Botanic Square in spring 2019.
About The Line
The Line is London's first dedicated contemporary art walk and opened in May 2015. The route currently runs between the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park and The O2, following the waterways and the line of the Meridian. Sculptures - by artists including Damien Hirst, Gary Hume and Thomas J Price - are set against the ever-changing backdrop of east London. The Line aims to encourage people to engage with contemporary art and the urban environment, as well as to learn about the area’s local history, wildlife and heritage. www.the-line.org
