LONDON.- On 27 July, King’s Cross launches one of the largest free and permanent outdoor gallery spaces in London; The Outside Art Project. This new project will see King’s Cross partner with renowned cultural organisations to curate a year-round programme of always-on, always-free, and always open art on the streets of N1C. The Outside Art Project will offer unhindered access to photographic and 2d art exhibitions from the highest calibre artists reflecting a wide range of styles and mediums.

The Outside Art Project is a permanent outdoor gallery, comprising 15 seating benches, each two-metres-wide and able to display two artworks, which will be located in the open spaces of the King’s Cross Estate. It will present a continuous programme of changing exhibitions from local, national and international artists.

The project launches with ‘Games We Play’, an exhibition from The Photographers’ Gallery, which celebrates the colour and quirks of summertime. Featuring the vibrant, visually arresting work of photographers Julie Cockburn, Luke Stephenson and Weronika Gęsicka, all represented by TPG’s Print Sales Gallery, ‘Games We Play’ offers witty and subversive takes on traditional leisure time and summer activities. The inaugural exhibition from The Photographers’ Gallery runs from 27 July to 1 November.

Brett Rogers, Director of The Photographers’ Gallery, said: “‘Games We Play’ goes to the heart of our mission, stimulating deeper engagement with contemporary photography – the most accessible art medium of our time. In advance of the Gallery’s own plans to transform the public realm outside its Soho venue during the course of 2021, this partnership represents an exciting opportunity for the public to enjoy photography outdoors within the safe and attractive spaces afforded by N1C.”

Confirmed future partnerships include a collaborative photography exhibition with Mentivity, an award-winning mentoring organisation specifically addressing issues that young people from black and minority ethnic backgrounds face within society and education. Mentivity’s exhibition will launch in January 2021. As the programme evolves and the partnerships change, The Outside Art Project will move around the King’s Cross site, which has become known for significant artworks from world renowned artists across its 26 acres of outdoor space. This will ensure that anyone who lives and works in, or visits the area, can encounter the colourful photographs and take a moment – at a socially-responsible distance – to enjoy them.

Robert Evans, CEO of King’s Cross, said: “With the Outside Art Project we are bringing something new to London; an always-on, but ever-changing gallery space which can be enjoyed by anyone at any time. This is part of the ethos of King’s Cross, to be open and welcoming to everyone. It is also part of our commitment to making art accessible every day – and that doesn’t mean compromising on quality. Our partnerships will bring some of the world’s best art on to the streets of N1C for everyone to enjoy. We hope the Outside Art Project brings a little joy to people, whether they are living or working here, or just passing through King’s Cross, giving them the chance to pause and reflect.”
