- Two thought-provoking art exhibitions will be displayed throughout the Estate, featuring a total of 31 unique artworks
- Scale Matters and State of Play will be open to the public from Monday 5 September to Friday 11 November, completely free of charge
Canary Wharf, home of London’s largest collection of outdoor public art, is set to grow its impressive collection with two brand new exhibitions opening in September – Scale Matters and State of Play. Both will be completely free for visitors to enjoy and found throughout the Estate.
Scale Matters is a free immersive exhibition of monochrome paper installations, elegantly presented around the expansive lobby of One Canada Square. The exhibition will inspire the audience to appreciate paper art in ways they never have before due to the intricacy implemented into the designs. The artwork has been created by internationally acclaimed artist Angela Glajcar and is open to the public between Monday 5 September and Friday 11 November.
The exhibition consists of 20 pieces of three-dimensional art made from paper, leaving its audience to question the concept of size, form and space. Visitors can explore the compelling intricacies of how Glajcar has manipulated the paper, releasing a harmonious interplay of light combined with shadow. Each piece of art from the exhibition has been created by the artist on site, which has been a vital part of the creative process for the unique and fragile artworks.
State of Play (Brooke Benington’s 2nd edition) will also be a new art installation on display, which will feature astounding artwork from a list of talented artists. They include German artist Cornelia Baltes who is known for her paintings that bend the rules of abstraction and figuration, Charlie Godet Thomas, known for his connecting of visual art and literature, alongside the likes of Heywood & Condie, Mark Hosking, Gary Hume, Laurence Owen and more.
State of Play will be displayed throughout the Estate between Monday 5 September – Friday 11 November, with the hope of reconnecting the public with fundamental characteristics of playfulness, curiosity, and delight. The exhibition aims to encompass human experience, forcing admirers to think about how we learn, evolve, adapt and create.
State of Play and Scale Matters are part of the wider ongoing arts and events programme on the Estate, where there is always something to attend or enjoy. The 24/7 city is a place where people can work, live and thrive and enjoy all the benefits; great transport links, access to green spaces and waterside living; and a huge range of activities and amenities.
Canary Wharf is a one stop shop for a fun-filled day, whether it be a solo trip or a day out with family. With hundreds of cafés, bars and restaurants including new restaurant openings Feels like June, Patty&Bun and MMy Wood Wharf, Canary Wharf offers plenty of options to choose from. This September, beyond the unique art exhibitions, visitors can watch the London SUP Open, part of the APP World Tour 2022, catch an after-work movie on the Summer Screens and attend the UK’s leading festival of free outdoor dance, Dancing City.
