The Cure Parkinson’s Trust (CPT), in association with Bonhams and Artwise, is delighted to announce the second edition of Cure3, an acclaimed selling exhibition devised to raise awareness of and funds for Parkinson’s research. The exhibition, taking place from 26th through to the 28th October 2018, will feature original works by more than 80 leading international artists including Sir Peter Blake and his daughter Rose Blake, renowned sculpture artist Conrad Shawcross, contemporary British painter Humphrey Ocean and many more. Cure3 is a unique opportunity to purchase covetable art while supporting the vital research work of The Cure Parkinson’s Trust.

Each artist has been invited to create an exclusive work using a bespoke Perspex box of 20cm3. The cube can be used in any way the artist chooses; as a frame, as a support or to contain their work. It was the late Co-founder and President of The Cure Parkinson’s Trust Tom Isaacs’ description of living with Parkinson’s as feeling like being ‘boxed in’ that inspired the Artwise concept from which Cure3 was borne.

Cure3 was a project very close to Tom’s heart, and he played a huge role in launching the first edition last year. Tom's wife Lyndsey said:

Tom was thrilled and exhilarated to have been a huge part of the inaugural Cure3 initiative and Cure3 2018 is part of Tom’s legacy and is a tribute to his ability to inspire others to help find a cure. We at The Cure Parkinson’s Trust are excited to continue to be involved in this innovative partnership that uses art as a medium to help raise funds and awareness for Parkinson’s.

Helen Matthews, Deputy CEO, The Cure Parkinson’s Trust said:

Cure3 enables CPT to fund essential research into new treatments with the potential to change Parkinson’s by slowing, stopping or even reversing the disease.  It is the calibre of the exhibition, so generously supported by the artists themselves and Bonhams, that is enabling this small but dedicated charity to draw attention to the urgent need to fund ground-breaking trials to find a cure for Parkinson’s.
Tom passed away on 31st May 2017 and this second edition of Cure3 is dedicated to his memory and all he achieved throughout his life with Parkinson’s.
Cure3 will include a host of major new artists in 2018, including leading names from the world of architecture. Prices for these collectable works will range from under £1,000 to over £20,000. The cubes will be on view to the public at Bonhams, London from 26th-28th October (with a private view on the 25th) and are available to purchase from the Cure3  website from 8am on 26th October 2018.
