We are thrilled to announce Wander Art, a public outdoor gallery trail of immersive site-specific art and design installations in the heart of Mayfair and Belgravia, to be unveiled from November 18th.
Curated by Alter-Projects and hosted by Landlord Grosvenor Britain & Ireland, the gallery will showcase new creations by some of the world’s most renowned international artists and designers, including Fernando Laposse, Richard Woods, Yinka Ilori, Emily Forgot, Morag Myerscough and Ricardo Cavolo.
A true testament to the democratisation of the arts, the Wander Art trail comes to life just in time to lift the spirits of London’s inhabitants as they enter a new round of Covid restrictions. Whilst recreational activities become limited, Wander Art allows Londoners to re-discover their city by foot safely, and through art.
Throughout the next weeks, new artwork by prominent international and London-based artists will be unveiled across squares, streets and buildings, creating an evolving and eye-catching art trail and be on view for the next six months.
With 12 different pieces in a range of distinctive styles, the creations featured along the Wander Art trail celebrate London’s iconic architecture and creative talents, drawing on the artists’ personal stories and individual perspectives of the city.
The outdoor gallery will feature site-specific sculptures, installations, and murals, to offer passersby a unique way to enjoy and discover London this winter. Wander Art embodies the inspiration that can be generated when the artistic community comes together in a joint effort to lift the general public’s spirits in challenging times.
Through the Wander Art trail, Alter-Projects and Landlord Grosvenor Britain & Ireland aim to stage a major cultural intervention across the neighbourhoods of Mayfair and Belgravia, attracting visitors to build one of the most vibrant and inclusive communities in London.
“We are thrilled to have the participation of some of today’s most inspiring artists who will bring a unique, bold, surprising, and thought-provoking experience to the area” says Anne Pingreoun, curator and founder of Alter-Projects.
Sharon Kwiatkowski, Creative Producer of Alter-Projects further comments: ‘It’s an ambitious but rewarding challenge to bring to life the visions of 12 talented artists, all with the same goal of injecting colour and joy across Mayfair and Belgravia for people of all ages to enjoy.”
