Fantasies of Exhibition Road
10 October World Mental Health Day - Fantasies of Albertopolis by leading international Artists
KCAW are delighted to be collaborating with Great Exhibition Road Festival, led by Imperial College London this year.
Fantasies of Exhibition Road will go live on 10 October across all our digital channels. The artists and artist studios taking part are Turner Prize nominee Ian Davenport, artist Remi Rough, virtual and AI-focused digital art studios Squidsoup and Space Popular, sculptor Sadie Clayton, digital artist Can Büyükberber, and recent Royal College of Art (RCA) graduate Ping Mu.
This fantastical project is part of the Great Exhibition Road Festival's new year-round programme of online events for all ages. Celebrating science and the arts, each month visitors will be able to enjoy free online talks, workshops and more, leading up to the Great Exhibition Road Festival weekend on 3-4 July 2021.
Participating artists have created their fantasies by taking inspiration from conversations with Imperial researchers who are exploring and conducting research into mental health themes of mutual interest.

The Fantasies will be revealed on 10 October on the Great Exhibition Road Festival website.
