Art and the City – 10x10 Drawing the City London

Format: Exhibition | Auction at Royal Institute of British Architects, London, 2016

10 x 10 Drawing the City London - Brixton

Participating artists: Antony Gormley, Jock McFadyen, David Adjaye, Zaha Hadid Architects, Kengo Kuma, Richard Meier, a.o.

Commissioning 100 artists and architects to draw from the 10X10 grid cast over Brixton, London, I encouraged selected participants to shift focus from the built environment to human interaction to portray the cultural diversity that makes Brixton, London, special. I curated the layout of artwork and oversaw the production and successful running of the event. The auction raised over £125,000 in support of architectural charity Article 25.
