‘Laura’ by Jaume Plensa for Sculpture In The City 2016/2017

Sculpture In The City is a public art exhibition, bringing contemporary pieces to the streets and spaces of the City of London. Now in its sixth year, the 2016-2017 collection launched last June, with a majority of pieces remaining in situ until June this year.

Admittedly it took me quite a lot of months to get round to checking them out, but I recently took advantage of a sunny day and headed into the City armed with my camera to see the artwork. This year’s exhibition features work from 17 artists located in and around iconic London buildings such as The Gherkin and Leadenhall Market. Here’s a few photos of the exhibition.

  • Sculpture In The City runs from now until June 2017. At various sites around the Square Mile. Nearest stations: Fenchurch Street, Monument or Liverpool Street. For more information and a map of the artworks, visit the City Of London’s official website.
