Cure³ is a new art project devised by Artwise in partnership with Bonhams and the David Ross Foundation to raise awareness and funds for the charity, The Cure Parkinson’s Trust (CPT) – a charity which has been a lifeline for people living with Parkinson’s , funding vital research into ways to slow, stop and reverse Parkinson’s, a degenerative disease which currently affects more than 10 million people worldwide.
The Cure³ cubes will be exhibited and sold in an exhibition in Bonhams London from March 13th-15th 2017, all proceeds raised will go directly to the charity CPT to help find a cure for Parkinson's Disease.
More than 50 artists of international standing have confirmed their participation. These include:
Peter Blake, Bouke de Vries, Peter Doig, Damien Hirst, Henry Hudson, Paul Huxley, Allen Jones, Idris Khan, Bharti Kher, Sarah Lucas, Polly Morgan, Julian Opie, Grayson Perry, Boo Saville, Conrad Shawcross, Gavin Turk and Jonathan Yeo.
Each of the participating artists has been invited to create an art work using a bespoke Perspex box 20cm³, allowing for multiple approaches and interpretations, although each artist has been provided with three key words for inspiration of particular relevance to The Cure Parkinson’s Trust (CPT): slow, stop, reverse.
With extensive coverage anticipated in the coming months, a buzz of excitement is building around what is set to be a major event of the arts calendar in 2017.
Paget PR organised the filming of a Sky News feature in which Kate Spicer interviews a number of those involved in the project, including artist Bouke de Vries and Cure Parkinson’s Trust founder Tom Isaacs. The piece is set for broadcast in January.
