LONDON.- The UK will become the world’s largest art gallery when a unique exhibition, Art Everywhere, will transform thousands of poster sites and billboards into iconic artworks from the national collection, to be launched on 8 August 2013. Art Everywhere is a collaborative project between Richard Reed, co-founder of Innocent Drinks, the Art Fund, Tate, and the poster industry.
The public are invited to help curate the exhibition by selecting their favourite British artworks from a shortlist published from 24 June 2013 on arteverywhere.org.uk. For one week they can choose their favourite works by ‘liking’ them and sharing them through Facebook. Reproductions of the most popular works – the top 50 - will be shown in the exhibition on billboard sites across the country for two weeks from 10th – 25th August.
