An evening of reflection on the Thames as four artists discuss how the river has influenced their work. Hosted by Sarah Gaventa, Director of the Illuminated River Foundation, the panel discussion will be held aboard a boat- travelling along the Thames from Tower to Albert Bridge and back.
Illuminated River is a free public art project on unprecedented scale: a scheme to light 15 of central London’s bridges along the River Thames with a unified, kinetic LED artwork by artist Leo Villareal. Leo is the latest in a long line of artists, writers and musicians to have made work inspired by the Thames and its architecture.
Reflections on the River looks to other artists whose work celebrates the rich history, ecology and communal spirit of the Thames. The line-up for the evening includes: artist, sculptor and film-maker, Amy Sharrocks; award-winning author, Iain Sinclair; artist, Alan Ball; and documentary film-maker, Susi Arnott.
