We are proud advocates for the power of art in public spaces and we have delivered some of London’s most important commissions over the past decade. Our technical expertise is matched by our commitment to the social impact art brings to the public arena. We work with world-recognised artists to imagine and deliver art for all. We are recognised leaders in the field and understand that arts and culture are central to placemaking and community building. Our clients share this vision and want to make a difference - delivering social value is at the heart of what we do, whether it’s temporary or permanent, online or on-site. Public space is changing and we are delivering great art for great places.
Mark Wallinger | The World Turned Upside Down
*Consultancy worked with LSE and Turner Prize-winner Mark Wallinger to create a new signature artwork for the School’s Saw Swee Hock Student Centre, the first permanent public work by the artist for London. This commission is part of a long-standing collaborative relationship with LSE that started in 2006, when *Consultancy commissioned Richard Wilson and Joy Gerrard’s sculptures for the LSE’s New Academic Building.
Bedwyr Williams | Ancient Connections
Do the Little Things is a public artwork designed for two locations: Ferns, Wexford and St David's Cathedral, Pembrokeshire. Commissioned by Ancient Connections, an EU-funded cross border arts, heritage and tourism project, the artwork connects the two communities through the practice of beekeeping, reflecting the medieval story of St David and his friendship with St Aidan, who, legend has it, brought bees back to Ireland from Wales.
Gillian Wearing | Suffrage Memorial, Parliament Square
In early 2017 the Mayor of London and partners 14-18 NOW, Firstsite and Iniva appointed *Consultancy to deliver a new public monument by Turner Prize-winning artist Gillian Wearing CBE. The resulting commission, a bronze statue of suffragist leader Dame Millicent Fawcett (1847-1929), remains the first-ever monument of a woman, created by a woman, to be sited in Parliament Square. Alongside Fawcett, the names and portraits of 59 women and men who campaigned for women’s suffrage are inscribed on the plinth.
