Square Mile, London Until Thursday June 30 2016 Free

Annual free outdoor exhibition of sculptures in the City of London.

Now in its fifth year, this public art initiative positions contemporary artists within the heart of the Square Mile, creating unexpected and humorous interactions within the urban environment. This year's line-up features Kris Martin, Laura Ford, Adam Chodzko, Folkert de Jong and Keita Miyazaki. you won’t fail to miss ‘Charity’, Damien Hirst’s giant sculpture of a collection box, but look out for Tomoaki Suzuki’s tiny figures, modelled after real Londoners. Both artists’ work is on display outside the Gherkin. In September a piece by Ai Weiwei will be added to coincide with his retrospective at the RA.
