10×10 London is Article 25’s main fundraising event. It divides an area of the city into a 10×10 grid. The 100 resulting squares are allocated to prominent architects, designers and artists, who create 100 unique artworks, together forming a snapshot of London. These are then auctioned, raising money for Article 25.
10×10 2015 venue announced
Article 25 is delighted to announce that 10×10 London will return in 2015.
This year’s auction is taking place on the 1st December and will be hosted at the RIBA.
The theme for this year’s event is the Thames, with artists exploring the role the river plays in shaping our city. The 10×10: Drawing the River grid will follow the curvature of the river and take in the incredible variety of architectural landmarks built along its banks. From the London Wetlands to Limehouse basin, centuries of London’s history can be traced along the river.
We look forward to announcing our full contributing artist list in due course.
Successful 10×10 2014
In 2014 10×10 London, held in The Shard, raised £120,000 for Article 25. Contributors included Antony Gormley, Zandra Rhodes, Richard Wilson, Celia Birtwell, Conrad Shawcross and Norman Foster. The event was widely covered by the media, including by Londonist, AJ, and BD.
Alastair Baird, Regional Managing Director of Barratt London, who has sponsored 10×10 for three consecutive years says:
”10×10 ‘Drawing the City London’ is a fantastic celebration of the vibrancy of London & its architecture; but most importantly, the event raises vital funds for a charity that is focused on making the world a better place to live. As a London-focused business, we are cognisant of the fact we are fortunate to live in a city where clean water and education are taken for granted, and its been inspiring for all of the employees at Barratt London to be reminded of how provision of these basic services utterly changes lives.”
