At the core of our work is a specialist knowledge of art in the public realm and contemporary practice, and a unique overview of commissioning in London. As part of this, we showcase London’s outstanding projects to help others build a picture of London’s cultural offer and demonstrate the range of ways in which practitioners are making work for the city.
