Memorial Park transformed into outdoor art exhibit

24th August 2011

East London's Memorial Park is set to be transformed into a hub of outdoor art installations during the Newham Summer/80 Days of Art season.

Easily accessible to those staying in central London hotels, the event boasts exhibitions and screenings, as well as visitor workshops and opportunities to meet the artists.

The summer series of art kicked off with an exhibition of textile/mixed media art at the site's Grassroots Centre.

Maria-Theresa Fernandes' Place is also currently being exhibited and can be seen between Monday and Friday daytime.

Additionally, the festivities will see the site host the Newham Arts Show, exhibiting works by a number of local and international artists.

Other events taking place in the park include music performances and film screenings, while the organisers are working with local artists Dominic Dragonnetti to develop a sculpture project.

Visitors to the capital can also indulge in late night east end exhibits as part of the First Thursday gallery events.

Organised by Time Out magazine and the Whitechapel Gallery, the walking tours allow art lovers to take in cultural artefacts in over 100 locations.

Among the featured exhibits that art aficionados can take in is the Group Show performance at Galerie8, including work from a quartet of female artists: Lizzie Caulter, Rebecca Grafton, Kseniya Sorokina and Audrey Reynolds.

Event organisers provide tour groups with suggested itineraries written up by the artists themselves, which will see people introduced to the works of Turner Prize-winners such as Wolfgang Tillmans and Gillian Wearing.
