“ ARCO, the International Contemporary Art Fair that held its first edition in 1982, constitutes one of the main art market platforms on the international circuit of art promotion and diffusion. ARCO has two calendar dates: ARCOmadrid, which takes place in the Spanish capital in the month of February, and in recent years, ARCOlisboa, held in Lisbon in the month of May. Both fairs gather together galleries, artists, professionals and institutions, converting the two capitals in epicentres of contemporary art and its market.”

NOCTURNAL CREATURES - Sculpture in the city & Whitechapel Gallery, London

Artist Marisa Ferreira in conversation with Richard Wentworth

As part of Nocturnal Creatures, artist Marisa Ferreira will speak about her work Series Industrial Windows I that takes inspiration from an industrial site in Northern Portugal and reflects her recent work themes, deindustrialization and ruin, to comment on the rapid urbanization and capitalist development of the region. Marisa will be reflecting on the urban landscape where memories of the industrial past are confronted with contemporary artistic production.

Marisa will be in conversation with artist Richard Wentworth, who himself has exhibited twice in Sculpture in the City.

The converstation will start at Cullum St where Series Industrial Windows I is sited and may then move to the seating area under the 'Cheesegrater'.

Location: Cullum Street, London

Lacuna Projects
Installed by Mtec


Sculpture in the City is an urban sculpture park, set amongst the architectural landmarks in the City’s insurance district. This dynamic project, where artworks are installed for up to a year, responds to the area’s ever-evolving urban environment by making use of newly created public spaces, or spaces previously unused or inaccessible. These sculptures create an art trail woven through the contemporary towers and historic alleyways of the City’s oldest working district. The sculptures add new layers of meaning, playing with the area’s identity and encouraging visitors to see this part of the City in a new light.

Sculpture in the City is delivered by the City of London Corporation in partnership with Aon, Aviva, Beaumont, Bloomberg, British Land, Brookfield Properties, CC Land, Hiscox, London & Oriental, Nuveen Real Estate, Tenacity, Tower 42 and TwentyTwo.

The full line-up of artists is as follows: Salvatore Arancio, Reza Aramesh, Elisa Artesero, Shaun C Badham, Jyll Bradley, Nathan Coley, Marisa Ferreira, Leo Fitzmaurice, Kevin Francis Gray, Clare Jarrett, Juliana Cerqueira Leite, Michael Lyons, Nancy Rubins, Nina Saunders, Jennifer Steinkamp, Do Ho Suh, Jonathan Trayte (autumn 2019), Patrick Tuttofuoco and Lawrence Weiner.
