10×10 2013

This year’s 10×10 attracted some of the world’s most renowned artists and architects, who together helped us to raise £90,000!

Each year, 100 participants come together in the summer to create 100 pieces of work, giving 100 perspectives of London. Previous participants have included Lord Norman Foster, Zaha Hadid and Grand Designs’ Kevin McCloud.

The project is a unique concept, with the designers and artists producing wonderful pieces of artwork inspired by the environment they help to create and shape, as well as providing a commentary and critique on the constantly changing landscape of central London. Every year 10×10 captures a different area of the city.

In 2013 we focused on East London, an area encompassing striking and innovative examples of architecture, both traditional and modern. During November of each year, a public exhibition of the 10×10 works is held, followed by an auction of the artwork by Sotheby’s.

Our grid included the areas of Hoxton, Shoreditch and the Barbican, most often associated with their transformation from one of London’s poorest areas to a trendy tech city.

This year’s event took place in the Crossing, 1 Granary Square (part of the new Central St Martins Kings Cross campus). Guests were treated to a welcome cocktail made by the excellent mixologists from the Grain Store, while Honey & Thyme once again provided the catering.

Due to requests for anonymity we will not be releasing a full list of sale prices for the event. If you would like further information however, please contact danielle-adam@article-25.org.

We would like to thank all of our wonderful sponsors for making this event possible.
