Art14 London, sponsored by Citi Private Bank, is pleased to announce Art & the City, a dedicated programme of events, which will run alongside the Fair, from 28 February – 2 March 2014. Developers are building cultural quarters and art hotels, retailers are blurring the lines between shops and galleries, and art fairs are branding cities and attracting tourism. Art14 London in collaboration with the Mayor’s Office will bring together the major global players – from developers to hotels groups, from private museum owners to retailers – to explore how art is remaking cities. There are three focused elements to the programme:

1. Public Talk – Saturday 1 March 2014, 2.30pm

A public talk on-site at Art14 London will highlight the ways in which art is used to regenerate cities and will include speakers who have first-hand experience of the impact that art has, not just culturally but socially and economically as well. Confirmed participants are as follows with additional speakers to be announced:

• Kate Rothko, Daughter of artist Mark Rothko
• Dai Zhikang, Founder and Chairman of the Zendai Group which has major commercial/cultural developments across China and is now launching in South Africa

2. Private Colloquium

Art14 London, in collaboration with the Mayor of London’s Office, will bring together the major global players from a variety of different industries to discuss how art is reshaping cities and establishing new cultural centres all over the world. Philip Dodd, Chairman of Art14 London Advisory Board and of Made in China (UK) Ltd, and Peter Murray, Fellow of the Royal Institute of British Architects and Chairman of Art & the City will chair an extended closed-door discussion on how art can be taken beyond galleries and into public buildings and spaces in the capital. Participants include:

• Michael Cassidy CBE, Chairman of Cross Rail
• Harry Handelsman, CEO of Manhattan Loft Corporation
• Gina Diez Barroso, CEO of Grupo Diarq
• Zheng Peiguang, Developer of Red Town cultural quarter in Shanghai
• Sean Ellis, Chairman of St James’ Group UK
• Wang Wei, owner of two private museums in Shangahi
• Kate Rothko, major donor to the Mark Rothko Center
• Dhai Zhikang, Founder and Chairman of the Zendai Group

3. Open Art

A key element of the programme is ‘Open Art’. This will offer members of the public access to buildings that house major artworks, demonstrating how organisations already use art to enhance the everyday experience of employees and visitors to the building. This is a rare opportunity to see art outside of the gallery space from collections that are usually restricted from public view. Collections that will be open to visitors include:

• The stores of the Government Art Collection
• The Wellcome Trust where you can view a seminal sculpture by Thomas Heatherwick
• The Senior Common Room of the Royal College of Art
• Caprice Holdings who will offer a tour of works in their Mayfair restaurants, led by art historian James Cahill
• The Dover Street Arts Club – a private-members venue
