Subject to raising the necessary funding, The Line will open this summer (2014)! It is a bold and ambitious project but with your help, we will be able to make it happen...
We are looking at installing up to 30 sculptures along the waterways of East London - at North Greenwich (along the walkways around the O2 - Millennium Dome), at the western end of the Royal Docks and along the towpath of the River Lea from Cody Dock to Stratford.
You will be able to 'Walk The Line’ for free (or, if you prefer, run The Line or cycle The Line)!
The Line will showcase existing works of art. It is an open submission project - artists, as well as collections, are requested to submit work. Works will be selected by a panel that will include both art professionals and local residents.
We really need your help to make this project happen - our next step is funding planning applications, design and the organisational elements of the project.
What we'll deliver:
Why it's a great idea:
The Line will encourage people to discover this amazing landscape, its fascinating history and encounter outstanding works of modern and contemporary art.
The Line will be free and open to all - people will be able to adventure in one of London's best kept secrets: East London's waterways.
The Line will bring great works of art to the docks, rivers and canals in an unprecedented three-year outdoor exhibition (we are planning to repeat the process of fund-raising, submission and selection in 2017, so that The Line will become a permanent addition to London's cultural offering). The project will showcase existing works of art, in many cases works that are currently hidden from public view...
As the project doesn't involve commissioning works, we can work really fast!
We really need your help to make this project possible - whether you're a Londoner or a London-lover, by supporting this project you can have a direct impact on the cultural landscape of this amazing city.
