Billboard is a nonprofit project by artist collective Cypher that has commissioned artists to produce responsive site-specific artworks for a billboard space in Bounds Green, London. The site aims to challenge conventions of display, and act as a launch-pad for generating conversations, through a series of satellite events and workshops within the local community. The Billboard project, situated publically, seeks to engage wider audiences than those often received within gallery walls.
The participating artists have developed a corresponding events programme to run along-side their exhibited work. Public-facing events so far have taken on a number of forms, including artist talk, screening, print sale and reading group. Cypher are also working towards a series of artist-led workshops with locally-based Trinity @ Bowes Youth Club.
Exhibiting artists – Felicity Hammond, Erin Hughes, Holly Graham, Milly Peck, and Amba Sayal-Bennett in collaboration with Ralph Hunter-Menzies.
