GUY STREET PARK - THE LIGHTBOX PROJECT: SHOW 2 
Friday 25 July 
6-9pm at Guy Street Park, Guy Street
A new contemporary art venue has been created from a
multi-storey car park, in London Bridge. Five
illuminated billboards have been installed in
Snowsfield car park, overlooking Guy Street Park. The
billboards display commissioned artworks made by
artists working with different section of the local
community. The second show is Marq Keareyıs young
persons summer project. Marq's work looks at how the
urban environment intentionally and unintentionally
subverts street signage's messages.  Marq explored
these ideas with over 35 young people in workshops at
REPA (Rockingham Estate Play Association). They combed
the streets and collected graphic images to make
collages by cutting, tearing and pasting.  Marq then
used these collages to create the artworks that can be
seen displayed within the light boxes.
Summer show continues until 28 November: open 24 hours
a day, 7 days a week.
