HIGH STREET WINDOWS
KCAW is proud to present HIGH STREET WINDOWS, a series of visual art commissions by Kensington and Chelsea Council.
The project features site-specific window installations across Kensington, activating local high streets through imaginative interventions by contemporary artists. Taking over vacant store windows, High Street Windows aims to showcase artists’ practices and engage visitors to the High Street, in a visual celebration of culture and creativity, turning vacant spaces into pop-up contemporary artworks.
Commissioned by Kensington and Chelsea Council, the installations encourage visibility of arts and culture unique to the borough, increasing positive perceptions of a vibrant and diverse area of London steeped in history and bustling with creativity, injecting creativity and promoting cultural engagement for a more sustainable high street.
The first sites, unveiled in December 2020, feature new works by London-based artists Fiona Grady, Ian Kirkpatrick, the Dotmaster, Gala Bell, and Alexander Ikhide; with upcoming installations by LUAP, Orlanda Broom and more.
