This summer, discover the art exhibition Kaleidoscope (18 June-31 August) by London artist Fiona Grady, an exploration of the creative possibilities of colour and light.
Exploring light, surface and scale, Fiona creates large, site-responsive drawings on walls, windows and floors that evolve over time, developing a series of rhythmic and geometric shapes which explore the relationships between architecture, installation art and decoration.
Changing with the light of the day, each installation emphasises the ongoing passing of time and the truly ephemeral nature of her artworks. Furthermore, they invite you to imagine light moving throughout space, to visualise it stretching and rotating across surfaces, offering glimpses of colour nuances and subtle shadows.
To complement her site-specific drawings, the artist develops new techniques and spatial possibilities through a series of works on paper and models.
Kaleidoscope is presented over several locations at Broadgate:
Visible from the surrounding walkways, Exchange House is presenting a largescale and site-specific artwork across the window elevations.
The Broadgate Tower & 201 Bishopsgate are displaying a sequence of new works on paper alongside a series of models created in direct response to Broadgate. To ensure ease of access on arrival please confirm your visit by email to Broadgate's art curator Rosie Glenn (firstname.lastname@example.org).
