Live Art at The Cube
The Cube is teaming up with two local street artists, as they take on the challenge of interpreting the building through a day of live art on Saturday 19th October from 10am-4pm.
On the day, the two Birmingham-based artists, That Bloke Wilson and Roots 0121, known for their bold and individual styles, will both be challenged to create a piece of art based on a particular aspect of The Cube building. The artists will then have the rest of the day to complete their finished art piece.
Positioned within the building itself, members of the public and passers-by are invited to watch the art unfold as the artists create the pieces live. Once complete, one of the pieces of art will then be gifted to The Cube’s charity partner, LoveBrum, and auctioned off in a bid to further support local people.
Doug Wattleworth, Director of Facilities at The Cube said: “The Cube has become such an iconic building on the city’s skyline, and we are always impressed by the number of photographs we see of the building, all of which capture it differently. With this in mind, we were excited at the prospect of seeing The Cube through art form, especially when people can see the artists craft their work in real time.
“We’re looking forward to watching as the artists transform their own impressions of The Cube into live art. We’ve been working with LoveBrum since the start of the year, so we hope that the donation of a final artwork piece enables them to raise additional funds for the worthy causes it supports”.
