The second edition of the acclaimed selling exhibition Cure3 will take place on 26th-28th October. In association with Bonhams and Artwise, Curewas devised to raise awareness of and funds for The Cure Parkinson's Trust (CPT). The exhibition will feature original works by more than 80 leading international artists and architects including Sir Peter Blake, renowned sculpture artist Conrad Shawcross, contemporary British painter Humphrey Ocean and many others. This is a unique opportunity to purchase covetable art while supporting the vital research work of The Cure Parkinson’s Trust. Prices for these collectable works will range from just £650 to £25,000.

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.

Each artist has been invited to create an exclusive work using a bespoke Perspex box of 20cm3. The cube is 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 conceived.

Almost all the cubes are now available to view online. We are thrilled to announce that also contributing works this year will be Cuban American painter Carmen Herrera, a legend in her field at 103, and renowned British sculptor Sir Anish Kapoor. These much-awaited cubes will be revealed shortly before the event.

Tom Isaacs 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.
