London Art Explorations are a series of walks investigating artworks displayed in outdoor settings in London, created and led by Gail Astbury, public art enthusiast as well as a practitioner in her own right.
We’ve adapted to the times and are thrilled to be offering a guided public art tour for all to enjoy from home. The tour will be held on Zoom using Google Streetview, and will be recorded too. It will take approximately 60 minutes, and there will be a chance to ask questions during
Discover artwork in public spaces in and around the ‘coolest neighbourhood’ in south London. We travel to Peckham and neighbouring streets, capitalising on the opportunities that Google Streetview affords, revealing works of art that have been installed or painted (some formally, some not) within this artist-rich Southwark suburb. Works by Antony Gormley, Tom Phillips, Hannah Barry and Richard Wentworth plus a number of street artists. Gail Astbury brings a knowledgeable slant to the artworks and the people who created them, having herself worked with many of the artists and specifically in Peckham.
After booking, you will receive a confirmation e mail (this may take a few hours).
You will then receive details of the Zoom meeting vie e mail within 3 hours of the start of the tour – the email will include a link to the virtual tour. Unfamiliar with Zoom? It is advisable to sign up to Zoom (it’s free to you as a participant) – do that right away. View this video about joining a Zoom meeting. Join the meeting a few minutes before the start time (treating it like going to the theatre and taking your seat). Within 5 minutes of the tour beginning, we will lock the meeting, so no one else can join the tour – this is a security measure to try minimise what’s called “Zoom bombing” and late arrivals cannot be guaranteed entry.
Once on the tour a hand drawn map, so when restrictions are eased you can retrace the tour.
