BLOOMBERG ARCADE HOSTS A LIVING ARTWORK IN THE CITY TO INSPIRE CLIMATE ACTION 

September 2, 2019 @ 8:00 am - 7:00 pm

|Recurring Event (See all)

An event every day that begins at 8:00 am, repeating until September 7, 2019

A new living art installation by UK-based artist duo Akroyd and Harvey has been unveiled at Bloomberg Arcade, the culinary and cultural destination in London’s Square Mile.

The artwork comprises of fifty-two oak trees grown from acorns collected from German artist Joseph Beuys’ monumental 1982 artwork, 7000 Oaks. The work – entitled Beuys’ Acorns – aims to challenge the relationship between humans and ecological systems in our cities and highlight the need for urgent climate action. 

During the installation, the Arcade will host a number of events for the public, including topical masterclasses and ‘In Conversation’ events that respond to the themes of climate change, conservation and sustainability. 

As London faces a climate emergency, the installation at Bloomberg Arcade aims to act as a catalyst for conversation around ecology, conservation and the interdependence between humankind and nature. 

Head down to the Arcade for great food and drink, but most importantly a much-needed touch of inspiration.
