ARTWORLD UNITES TO MAKE ART IN AID OF THE CURE PARKINSON'S TRUST FOR CURE³,
A SELLING EXHIBITION AT BONHAMS, LONDON, 13 -15 MARCH 2017

Cure3 is a new art project devised by Artwise in partnership with Bonhams and the David Ross Foundation to raise awareness and funds for The Cure Parkinson’s Trust (CPT) – funding vital research into ways to slow, stop and reverse Parkinson’s.

In the summer of 2016, more than 50 artists of international standing were invited to create an art work using a bespoke Perspex box 20cm3 - hence the title Cure3 with the box serving as a space to frame, support or contain each work, allowing for multiple approaches and interpretations. The results have been outstanding, with each artist creating unique, highly collectable artworks which will be on show at Bonhams, London from 13th – 15th March and on sale via the website www.cure3.co.uk

Harvey Cammell, Deputy Chairman Bonhams UK, said,

It is astonishingly generous of these internationally renowned contemporary artists to donate museum-quality work to this selling exhibition. Bonhams is proud to be working alongside them to support The Cure Parkinson’s Trust in its extraordinary work combatting this cruel disease.

From now until the exhibition opens on 13th March, 5 new works will be unveiled and available to preview every week, via the Cure³ website and Bonhams Cure³ exhibition page, with artists including;

Ron Arad, Peter Blake, Rob and Nick Carter, Jake and Dinos Chapman, Mat Collishaw, Shezad Dawood, Bouke de Vries, Peter Doig, Andy Goldsworthy, Subodh Gupta, Sean Henry, Damien Hirst, Henry Hudson, Paul Huxley, Alison Jackson, Ben Johnson, Allen Jones, Idris Khan, Rachel Kneebone, Liliane Lijn, Sarah Lucas, Polly Morgan, Annie Morris, Julian Opie, Grayson Perry, Boo Saville, Conrad Shawcross, Rebecca Warren, Hugo Wilson, Rose Wylie, Jonathan Yeo.

Cure³ offers the opportunity to actively support our crucial work with prices ranging from under £1,000 to £20,000 for original works by leading contemporary artists. This is not an auction: all the artworks will have a fixed price and be available to purchase directly via www.cure3.co.uk. The sales platform on the website will go live at 8am on Monday 13th March, 2017.

CPT believes that a cure for Parkinson’s is both realistic and tangible and we are constantly searching for new routes to slow, stop or reverse Parkinson’s - developing new treatments that will affect people living with Parkinson’s within a five year period. Cure3 offers the opportunity to actively support this crucial work by seeing and collecting remarkable new works by leading contemporary artists.

2017 will mark the 200th anniversary of the discovery of Parkinson’s, an important milestone which we can mark by this significant event - Cure3.
