Following the popularity of 2013’s show, Geoff Leong once again joins forces with dynamic artist-curator duo Vanya Balogh & Cedric Christie plus a new team of multi-talented artist curators, to support this non-profit exhibition featuring over 100 artists in the circular 20,000 Sq ft multi storey Q-Park car park beneath Cavendish Square.
Whilst unusual in terms of location, this annual event likes to challenge, entice and entertain all art lovers and visitors.
Open to the public for 6 consecutive days, it features diverse work in the medium of sculpture, film, photography, painting and site specific interventions, including performative talks and live presentations, with a deliberate feeling for unpredictability and curiosity. Both emerging and established artists are present throughout the event. This year, the show also includes a marble sculpture by Andy Elton in the gardens of Cavendish Square.Geoffrey Leong, as cultural ambassador for British/Chinese culture, has supported London’s events since 2009.
