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 exhibition. Public-facing events will take a number of forms, such as a meal, book club, artist talk, discussion group, screening, or performance.
Cypher will also establish a series of artist-led workshops with a local youth group, to culminate in a collaborative billboard display generated from creative responses by project participants, in March 2018.
Exhibiting artists – Felicity Hammond, Erin Hughes, Holly Graham, Milly Peck, and Amba Sayal-Bennett
