Over 80 leading artists and architects united for Cure3 2018, a selling exhibition held in aid of The Cure Parkinson's Trust at Bonhams, London, from the 25-28th October 2018.
Cure3 (Cure Cubed) 2018 was the 2nd edition of the acclaimed selling exhibition devised by Artwise in partnership with Bonhams to raise awareness and funds for The Cure Parkinson’s Trust (CPT). Featuring original commissions by more than 80 international artists and architects, Cure3 2018 presented an opportunity to buy covetable art whilst supporting the vital work of The Trust.
Co-founded in 2005 by Tom Isaacs, The Cure Parkinson’s Trust (CPT) is a charitable organisation created by and for people living with Parkinson’s. CPT has one bold aim – to find a cure for Parkinson’s. CPT funds and supports pioneering research into new treatments which offer real hope of a cure to the more than 10 million people living with the condition worldwide.
Tom lived an inspirational life with Parkinson’s, devoted to the cause of CPT. He was passionate about the Cure3 project from the beginning, and it was Tom’s description of living with Parkinson’s as feeling like being ‘boxed in’ that inspired Artwise with the concept from which Cure3 was borne. Sadly Tom passed away on May 31st 2017, and so Cure3 2018 was dedicated to his memory and incredible achievements.
The 2017 event launched to acclaim with 53 artists of international standing all creating an artwork in a bespoke 20cm3 Perspex box. Cure3 2018 followed the same format, but included over 80 artworks created by a host of major new artists and the addition of important names from the world of architecture. As before, the cube could be used in any way the artist or architect chose; as frame, support or to contain. Prices for these highly sought-after and collectable art works ranged from under £1,000 to over £20,000.
The cubes were on view to the public at Bonhams from 26th – 28th October 2018 (with the Private view on 25th), and are available to purchase on this website.
