On 5 September The Cure Parkinson’s Trust (CPT) launched the 3rd edition of Cure3, an acclaimed selling exhibition devised by Artwise Curators and kindly hosted  by Bonhams, London, to raise funds and awareness of CPT’s research into a cure for Parkinson’s. Early results from Cure3 2020 confirm that this unique selling event has now raised over £1m for The Cure Parkinson’s Trust since the first edition in 2017.  An incredible £330,000 was raised this year alone, as the team overcame the challenges presented by COVID-19 to deliver a virtual and socially distanced exhibition.

This year’s event was particularly special, as Cure3 welcomed over 80 artists and fashion designers – the highest number yet - to take on the challenge of creating a unique artwork using a Perspex box of 20cm3. We were delighted to have artists including Frank Bowling, Do Ho Suh, Chantal Joffe and fashion designers such as Giles Deacon and Roksanda Ilinicic taking part.

To celebrate this year’s event, we partnered with Fenwick and for a limited period of time before the opening of Cure3 at Bonhams, the cubes of our 11 fashion designers were on display in the window of their Bond Street store! A huge thank you to Fenwick for their support in this year’s exhibition. The cubes remain on display at Fenwick, Bond Street until the 22 September.

Continuing with the fashion theme, we would like to thank heritage brand Richard Allan London for their creation of a special Cure3 edition silk scarf, based on a 1960s design. The scarf is now on sale and can be purchased from the Cure3 website

If you were unable to visit the exhibition at Bonhams which ran from 5 – 8 September, you can now view our virtual tour on the Cure3 website.

There are still some cubes available to buy for a limited time; these can be viewed on the Cure3 website. All profits raised by this critically acclaimed project will go directly to help fund curative Parkinson’s research.

We would like to thank Artwise for their hard work in curating such a fantastic exhibition, and to Bonhams for kindly hosting the event. CPT would also like to thank our sponsors: The CHK Foundation, Action For Equality Scotland, Artlogic, Champagne Palmer & Co, 01 Art Services Ltd, Willis Towers Watson, Black Cow Vodka and the Shin Kong Wu Foundation.
