Transport for London has partnered with Southwark Council, City of London, Better Bankside and leading residential and mixed-use developer Native Land along with specialist contractor McGee to create an outdoor gallery space on the Ludgate development site hoardings by the southern side of Blackfriars Bridge.
The area adjacent to Rennie Gardens has been transformed into a temporary gallery space where passers-by and the local community can enjoy artworks by local artists. The eight artworks, which were selected by a panel including local residents and stakeholders such as Tate Modern, serve to add a touch of colour to the site hoardings and the street.
Each work of art interprets the theme of ‘construction’ in a unique way and was sponsored by a construction company or supplier, with proceeds going directly to a charity of their choice.
All the project partners, artists and local residents came together to launch the gallery on the 10 October and people will able to enjoy the artwork until December.
