ALLEN ROAD SCULPTURE PARK

28/09 – 01/10/2017
The overgrown back garden of an East London semi-detached was transformed for Art Licks Weekend 2017 into Allen Road Sculpture Park.
Set among 0.006 acres of suburban wilderness between the luscious green of Victoria Park and the bustle of Roman Road, an ordinary garden was Bow’s premier sculpture park, featuring site-specific work by Michaela Cullen, Karanjit Panesar and Dominique White.
Allen Road Sculpture Park was GRAFT’s launch project, turning the idea of the sculpture park on its head, taking it from the country to the city, and making a private space public. GRAFT aims to subvert and challenge typical experiences of contemporary art, creating opportunities to exhibit young artists and connect with local communities.
