Un nuovo progetto di camminata artistica sta prendendo forma nell'area est di Londra, si tratta di The Line, come sempre un grande lavoro di sinergie fra appassionati, collezionisti, artisti e gallerie.
The Line will be a world-class sculpture walk in London. The route of the walk broadly follows the line of the Meridian, linking two of the iconic sites of East London: Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park and the O2. The project will bring modern and contemporary sculpture to the waterways. The Line is a Community Interest Company, set up by Megan Piper and Clive Dutton.
In February 2014, The Line launched a hugely ambitious crowdfunding campaign and successfully raised over £140,000 in less than eight weeks. One of the aims of The Line is to present existing work in a new context. Artists, galleries and collections were requested to propose work for consideration by an independent panel. The works that are installed this year will be on loan for two years. The Line will create a permanent outdoor exhibition space with new works introduced every year.
