Sculpture in the City aims to enhance the Square Mile with contemporary works from leading artists, set amongst some of London’s most iconic architectural landmarks - the Gherkin, The Leadenhall Building and Lloyd’s building of London.

Join co-director Stella Ioannou for this fascinating walking tour of the City’s open-air art exhibition. Now in it’s sixth year, this is the largest to date and showcases 17 works ranging in scale from a seven-metre high cast-iron head by Catalan sculptor Jaume Plensa to a series of delicate and playful lead paper chain sculptures by Peruvian artist, Lizi Sánchez.

The full list of  artists include: Anthony Caro, Benedetto Pietromarchi, Gavin Turk, Giuseppe Penone, Huma Bhabha, Jaume Plensa, Jürgen Partenheimer, Lizi Sánchez, Mat Collishaw, Michael P Lyons, Recycle Group, Sarah Lucas, Ugo Rondinone, and William Kentridge & Gerhard Marx.
