Today it has been announced that a new climate art installation, Swarm, by Leonie Bradley will be unveiled on the eve of the UN climate change conference, COP27. The installation has been commissioned by our client, Woolwich Contemporary Print Fair (WCPF), and leading real estate business, Landsec. It will be exhibited in London from 3-6 November and then installed at the Westgate Shopping Centre in Oxford during 2023. More details on the launch, the installation and Leonie Bradley can be found in the press release here.
WCPF is Europe's largest art fair dedicated to contemporary print. Now in its seventh year, the annual event champions the power of art to challenge, inspire and educate audiences. It encourages open call applications that explore themes of ecology, climate action and environmentalism. Their programme includes a plethora of climate-based art projects including the Young London Print Prize (YLPP), a pioneering visual arts social enterprise which provides a program for young people from low income neighbourhoods, themed around climate art. Find out more about how the YLPP is supporting young Londoners to use art to express their response to climate change, as well as our involvement in the project here.
WCPF has been a client of Boodle Hatfield for the past five years and we are proud to support an event which showcases the best in international contemporary print by bringing together over 500 international artists and 800 original works for an exciting line-up of ones-to-watch, well-known names and internationally renowned specialist galleries.
