This September, The Ilaka Project will present Sugarcoated – a one week art gallery exhibition hosted at the uber trendy Hoxton Basement, London.
Taking the concept of candy, ten artists will present too-good-to-resist visual sweet treats designed to ‘make your teeth hurt’, as well as pieces from their individual collections.
Guests will make their way through a confectionery kingdom filled with exclusive pieces from 2D miniature works to 3D sculptures, as well as interactive art installations. Be sure to expect Instagram-worthy pink sandpits, giant lollipops, parachutes for love notes and floating tea pots from 7th – 14th September 2017.
With an all-Pakistani artist line-up, the aim of the project is to promote Pakistani art in an innovative, quirky format and to also provide exposure into the western market.
All pieces presented at Sugarcoated will be available to purchase online.
The Ilaka Project is split into two platforms: the physical platform of pop-up art galleries and exhibitions which are centred around pop-culture themes popular among generation X; with the second branch being their online platform. The Ilaka Project provide a bespoke advisory service which includes sourcing artwork, in-depth knowledge on which artists to invest in, and the opportunity for special commissions too.
Candy-filled Instagram posts at the ready!
