Cure('Cure Cubed') 2018 is a unique selling art exhibition which launched on Thursday 25th October at Bonhams, London and was open to the public until Sunday 28th October. Cure2018 is the second edition of this acclaimed exhibition devised by Artwise in partnership with Bonhams to raise awareness of Parkinson's and support the vital research of The Cure Parkinson’s Trust's (CPT). The 'cube' concept was borne out of a description by late CPT co-founder and President Tom Isaacs of living with Parkinson’s as feeling like 'being boxed in.’ Sadly, Tom passed away in May 2017 but he was so passionate about the inaugural Cure3 exhibition that this year’s event has been dedicated to him. Featuring original commissions, Cure3 is an opportunity to buy stunning pieces of art created by more than 80 international artists and architects.

Each were given a bespoke, Perspex cube of 20cm3 to create their artworks, using this in a variety of ways to support, frame or contain their work. Cure3 creates an inspiring challenge and the artworks this year have been stunning, spanning both established names and rising stars in the art world.

The top priced art work was created by renowned sculptor Sir Anish Kapoor, and sold for £80,000. Other contributing artists included the legendary Carmen Herrera, 103, and Sergeant Pepper artist Sir Peter Blake along with celebrated portrait artist Jonathan Yeo. 

The launch event on Thursday 25th October was a great success. £300,000 was raised before the end of the evening surpassing last year’s final total! England rugby legend and CPT Patron Mike Tindall attended the evening, along with a number of high-profile artists and art collectors.

The remaining cubes are available to purchase online until November 11th - www.cure.co.uk.

This year’s Cure3 exhibition was made possible thanks to the generous support of Julia and Hans Rausing. CPT would also like to say a huge thank you to Artwise for curating this inspiring exhibition, to Bonhams for generously hosting the event and to Dan Fontanelli for his fantastic photography and 3D filming of the cubes. Thanks also to Black Cow Vodka, Jenkyn Place and The Savoy for kindly providing refreshments for the private viewing; to Willis Towers Watson, Art Services Ltd, Art Logic and Next for their kind support, and finally to Clothing for Events for providing the Cure3 shirts and blouses.
