Beaconsfield has been invited to curate a selection of artists works to show in the public spaces of The Foundry, a new social justice and human rights centre, over the coming year.

On The Wire, the title of the series, refers to singer-songwriter Leonard Cohen’s lyrics – ‘like a bird on the wire… I have tried in my way to be free’ - in turn referencing the Declaration of Human Rights, which in Article 19 declares the right of artists to express themselves in any media. Our first selection of artists focuses on two dimensional works with artists who reflect on the human condition through a variety of perspectives.

The Foundry is built in partnership with The Barlow Cadbury Trust, Ethical Property Company, Joseph Rowntree Charitable Trust, Lankelly Chase Foundation and Trust for London that recently opened in Vauxhall.
