Set among 0.006 acres of suburban wilderness between the luscious green of Victoria Park and the bustle of Roman Road, this ordinary garden is Bow’s premier sculpture park, featuring site-specific work by Michaela Cullen, Karanjit Panesar and Dominique White. Allen Road Sculpture Park is GRAFT’s launch project, turning the idea of the sculpture park on its head, taking it from the country to the city, and making a private space public. GRAFT aims to subvert and challenge typical experiences of contemporary art, creating opportunities to exhibit young artists and connect with local communities. Get on the tube, keep your money in your pocket and your walking boots at home. Here’s your friendly neighbourhood sculpture park.
