London Sculpture Week
London Sculpture Week is an initiative celebrating sculpture in the capital’s public realm. 2023’s iteration took place from 16 – 24 September, alongside SculptureFest which took place on 16 September.
A collaboration between Sculpture in the City, Frieze Sculpture, The Line and the Mayor of London’s Fourth Plinth Programme, London Sculpture Week – which launched to acclaim in 2022, returned in 2023. The shared ambition of each of these programmes was to elevate London’s public art offering and to bring contemporary sculpture to the widest possible audience. Held in key locations across the capital – The Regent’s Park, Trafalgar Square, East London’s The Line (which runs from Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park in Stratford to The 02 in North Greenwich), and the City of London – London Sculpture Week presented the cultural possibilities of London’s public and outdoor spaces, and further established the city’s status as a world-leading capital of culture.
To coincide with London Sculpture Week, Sculpture in the City offered free guided walking tours to encourage the public to come, explore and enjoy the wide scope of artworks that make up the 12th Edition. Offering tours led by City of London guides and a British Sign Language guide, it was an unmissable opportunity to discover world-class public art across the City of London’s iconic urban and architectural landscape.
This series of free Sculpture in the City tours was kindly supported by EC BID.
