Cure3 (Cure Cubed) 2020 is the 3rd 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). Cure3 2020 will feature original commissions by more than 80 internationally renowned artists, joined by famous names from the world of fashion. The list of participating artists and designers for 2020 will be announced here on 12th June.
Since 2017 Cure3 has become an eagerly anticipated highlight on the international artworld calendar and has established a worldwide reputation for the quality and inventiveness of the work presented. Cure3 is a unique opportunity to buy covetable art by leading artists whilst also supporting the vital work of The Cure Parkinson's Trust.
Co-founded in 2005 by Tom Isaacs and three other people living with Parkinson's, CPT is a charity 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 the 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 born.
The launch event in 2017 was widely acclaimed, 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 with the addition of important names from the world of architecture.
Prices for these highly sought-after and collectable art works have ranged from £1,000 to over £40,000 and has included some of the most celebrated contemporary artists of our times, including Sir Anish Kapoor, Carmen Herrera, Peter Doig, Sarah Lucas and Damien Hirst. All profits raised from the sale of art works go directly to CPT and to date, Cure3 has raised more than ¾ of a million pounds.
Cure3 is not an auction, each art work is individually priced by the artist and sold at this fixed price on line at www.cure3.co.uk. The works will be on preview at Bonhams from 5-7th September 2020 and sales will go live online from Tuesday 8th September at 8am.
All profits will go directly to The Cure Parkinson's Trust, to fund research to slow, stop or reverse Parkinson's.
