For The Cure Parkinson's Trust
Curated by Susie Allen & Laura Culpan, Artwise
In Partnership with Bonhams
Supported by The David Ross Foundation and London's Gatwick Airport
In March 2017, Cure3 launched with 53 artists of international standing all creating an art work using a bespoke Perspex box 20cm3 with the box serving as a space to frame, support or contain each work, allowing for multiple approaches and interpretations.
It was Tom Isaacs' description of living with Parkinson’s as feeling like being ‘boxed in’ that inspired the concept from which Cure3 was borne. Tom, who was diagnosed with Parkinson’s at the age of 27, was passionate about the Cure3 project from the outset and was incredibly proud of CPT’s involvement with this event.
“The Cure Parkinson's Trust (CPT) could not be more delighted to be involved with the Cure3 project. We have been bowled over by the extraordinary enthusiasm of the people involved. The success of the project is indicative of the wealth of talent and expertise of those who have defined and shaped the project from the outset.”
The late Tom Isaacs, Co-Founder and President, The Cure Parkinson's Trust
The artworks were sold and all the money raised went to CPT to help find a cure for Parkinson's Disease.
