Estate of the Art

Discover a growing neighbourhood with culture and experience at its core.

Canary Wharf is a canvas for creativity and an open-air stage for electrifying spectacles of soaring colour and carefully curated festivities.

ENJOY LIFE AMONGST SOME OF THE BEST CANARY WHARF PUBLIC ART

 

The long-term nature of Canary Wharf Group’s vision for shaping a creative, culturally rich neighbourhood is evident in the huge commitment they’ve made to the arts over the years. It’s something that’s been hardwired since day one – new art projects and engaging installations from internationally renowned artists popping up across the estate all year round.

 

For example, the diverse sculptures found throughout its public spaces – still the nation’s largest outdoor art collection – enliven the whole neighbourhood and support a wider fabric of performance and creative endeavour which has always defined Canary Wharf art.

 

Renowned sculptor Helaine Blumenfeld’s OBE ‘Looking up’ exhibition is the latest to supplement more permanent pieces. You’ll find some of her majestic marble and bronze monuments drawing attention in Jubilee Park and catching the eyes of all who pass through Westferry Circus. Here for many months to come, they already feel like creative custodians of the Estate’s parks and gardens.

 

LIGHT ENTERTAINMENT

 

Countless events and exhibitions have also shone here, leading to Canary Wharf being globally recognised for its award-winning Arts & Events programme. Hosting an almost overwhelming variety of London art projects, performers and visionaries, it’s curated a richness of experience that inspires people to connect unlike anywhere else in the capital.

 

You’ll not want to miss local artist Yinka Ilori’s Bank Street Park basketball court. Washed in vivid, bright colours, his candy pinks, electric blues and tangy yellows heighten the experience of shooting a few hoops and inspire visitors to embrace his self-styled mantra:

 

“Be the best you can be.”
— Yinka Ilori

 

It was all about bright colour this summer. A brand new ‘Summer Lights’ exhibition celebrated natural light across the Estate, while Morag Myserscough commandeered Montgomery Square Pavilion to create something mesmerising with her trademark use of loud colours and bold, layered shapes that spark joy in everyone her work touches.

 

 

More than simply exhibitions, these are cherished partnerships. The Estate provides the canvas for their creativity, while they in turn make the experience of living and visiting Canary Wharf public art even richer. It’s about creating opportunities for people to completely immerse themselves. This is the magic of these moments. And the art, exhibitions and culture taking place here are the energy that fuels them.

 

THE JOYFUL SPIRIT OF A LONDON ART PROJECT 

 

After punishing lockdowns empty of colourful memory making and joyful physical interaction, new experiences are the chance to put them back into our lives and remind ourselves what the true spirit of art and culture is all about. For Canary Wharf, this means creating opportunities for conviviality, connection and creativity through art, through authentic engagement; through coming together again. Just like it always has.

 

Keep an eye on the ‘What’s on’ section of the Canary Wharf website to stay up to date with the art, performance, dance, music, theatre, sport, film and more taking place throughout the year.
