Hold the phone! We have just stumbled across what may be our fave project of the year: The Market Estate Project. 75 artists have been let loose on a 1960s housing estate in London that has been scheduled for demolition. And as the bulldozers rev their engines, the public are invited in to catch a fleeting glimpse of what these artists have created.
For one day only (Saturday March 6), Londoners can take a tour through of the 66 site-specific projects across 20 vacant flats of Market Estate. It breaks our heart to know that in a matter of days these paintings, sculptures and installations will be nothing more than rubble, but that’s all the more reason to see it while you can.
The Market Estate Project is on view Saturday March 6 from 2pm-10pm only.
