LONDON.- Sculpture in the City is launching a week-long series of free guided tours of its 11th edition to coincide with the inaugural Sculpture Week London, a new initiative celebrating sculpture in the capital’s public realm, taking place from 12 - 18 September 2022. Born out of a collaboration between Sculpture in the City, Frieze Sculpture, and the Mayor of London’s Fourth Plinth Programme in Trafalgar Square, Sculpture Week London will encompass the opening of Frieze Sculpture in Regent’s Park (14 September – 13 November 2022) and the unveiling of the new Fourth Plinth Programme (14 September) alongside the 11th edition of Sculpture in the City which opened in June 2022. The overarching ambition is for these distinct, yet interconnected programmes to encourage a wider audience to discover more about contemporary sculpture works in London. Held in three destinations across the capital, The Regent’s Park, Trafalgar Square, and the City of London, Sculpture Week will showcase the cultural breadth of central London’s public spaces and outdoor offerings, reinforcing London’s position as a world-leading culture capital.

Sculpture in the City is an annual exhibition of contemporary art placed amongst the widely recognisable architecture of the City of London. This 11th edition features twenty artworks by internationally renowned and emerging artists on free display for a year, alongside six sculptures that remain in situ from the 10th edition, and two permanent acquisitions.

To coincide with Sculpture Week London 2022, Sculpture in the City has launched a series of free guided walking tours to encourage the public to come, explore and enjoy the wide scope of artworks that make up the 11th edition. Led by City of London Guides, the tours will offer an unmissable opportunity to discover this year’s collection of artworks, discovering world-class public art across the City of London’s iconic urban and architectural landscape.
