Cure3 is a new art project devised by Artwise in partnership with Bonhams and the David Ross Foundation to raise awareness and funds for the charity, The Cure Parkinson’s Trust (CPT) – a charity which has been a lifeline for people living with Parkinson’s , funding vital research into ways to slow, stop and reverse Parkinson’s, a degenerative disease which currently affects more than 10 million people worldwide.
Each of the participating artists was invited to create an art work using a bespoke Perspex box 20cm3 - hence the title Cure3. The box serves as a space to frame, support or contain each work, allowing for multiple approaches and interpretations, although each artist has been provided with three key words for inspiration of particular relevance to The Cure Parkinson’s Trust (CPT): slow, stop, reverse.
The Cure3 cubes were exhibited and sold in an exhibition in Bonhams London from March 13-15th 2017, all proceeds raised went directly to the charity CPT to help find a cure for Parkinson's Disease.
