Vauxhall’s arches are calling all artists, but will you be the artist to answer?
Partnership brokered by Reg&Co Ltd
With a bit of normality on the horizon Moniker Culture, Vauxhall One and The Arch Company have joined forces to present Art in the Arches, bringing colour and creativity to Vauxhall’s railway arches. The theme, Love Different Love Vauxhall pays homage to an area where diversity and vibrancy are celebrated and is an open call to all artists and creatives to submit their artworks and ideas to visually transform parts of Albert Embankment and Goding Street.
The project offers paid commissions for both vinyl and hand-painted artwork. The digital works will be printed onto vinyl with the hand-painted work featuring in the form of a mural on brickwork using spray, bucket or acrylic paint. To apply artists simply need to visit https://beinvauxhall.com/art-in-the-arches/ where applications are now open until May 31st. Successful artists will be notified by 7th June and the installations are set to take place 14th-17th June.
Tina Ziegler, Director Moniker Culture, “Vauxhall is such a diverse, vibrant and amazing part of London, so, it is only right that we reflect its community by spotlighting creativity and bringing some colour and energy back to Vauxhalls railway arches as we come out of lock-down and enjoy exploring the area again.
Bernard Collier, CEO of Vauxhall One, “Vauxhall has long been an inspiration for artists dating back to the 17th Century. Vauxhall Pleasure Gardens were painted by Canaletto and Whistler, and the area is attributed with opening the world’s first galleries. Today, Vauxhall is home to a number of superb contemporary galleries with Damien Hirst’s Newport Street Gallery, the Cabinet Gallery, Gasworks, Beaconsfield, and the Sunday Painter. Vauxhall One is eager to build on this legacy by sending a call out to artists to transform these arches into bold works of art. I am excited to see what people come up with.”
