“Detourist” Artist Tour with Leo Fitzmaurice | ARCADIA at Plaza outside Fenchurch St Station | Saturday, 20. July 2019

Join Artist Leo Fitzmaurice and Commissioning Editor for Art at Phaidon Press, Rebecca Morrill, for a gentle evening of flâneuring about. The 'detour' will take the form of an unscripted walk'n'talk between Rebecca and Leo, and encourage input from the group. The stroll will take in all three of Fitzmaurice’s works and, potentially, anything in between: so, plenty of tangents and no dead ends.
To attend the tour, book your place here. Note the tour is free but space is strictly limited so booking is essential.

About Sculpture in the City 
Sculpture in the City is an urban sculpture park, set amongst the architectural landmarks in the City’s insurance district. This dynamic project, where artworks are installed for up to a year, responds to the area’s ever-evolving urban environment by making use of newly created public spaces, or spaces previously unused or inaccessible. These sculptures create an art trail woven through the contemporary towers and historic alleyways of the City’s oldest working district. The sculptures add new layers of meaning, playing with the area’s identity and encouraging visitors to see this part of the City in a new light.
Sculpture in the City is delivered by the City of London Corporation in partnership with Aon, Aviva, Beaumont, Bloomberg, British Land, Brookfield Properties, CC Land, Hiscox, London & Oriental, Nuveen Real Estate, Tenacity, Tower 42 and TwentyTwo.
The full line-up of artists is as follows: Salvatore Arancio, Reza Aramesh, Elisa Artesero, Shaun C Badham, Jyll Bradley, Nathan Coley, Marisa Ferreira, Leo Fitzmaurice, Kevin Francis Gray, Clare Jarrett, Juliana Cerqueira Leite, Michael Lyons, Nancy Rubins, Nina Saunders, Do Ho Suh, Patrick Tuttofuoco and Lawrence Weiner.
