Curated by FuturePace, the innovative partnership between Pace gallery and Futurecity, Smart Art \ Smart Cities is a new exhibition exploring how the international group of FuturePace artists are directly engaging with our built environment to bring original ideas to our cities.
The display will feature examples of urban projects realised in London and abroad as well as artistic short films edited by the studios, including JR, Studio Drift, Random International, Studio Swine, Michal Rovner, teamLab, Kohei Nawa and Leo Villareal. On view at New London Architecture through October 29, 2018.
A talks programme featuring FuturePace artists will run alongside the exhibition, providing a forum to debate culture-led placemaking, new opportunities and approaches to public art and what effect they may have on our future cities.
