SEE COOL INSTALLATIONS: The Piccadilly Art Takeover
Head to Piccadilly Circus this weekend to see an art installation commissioned by the RA. Five artists – Michael Armitage, Vanessa Jackson, Isaac Julien, Farshid Moussavi and Yinka Shonibare – have designed 30 flags to hang over the streets, and transformed 13 pedestrian crossings with colourful artwork. Once the installation comes down at the end of August, there will be regular takeovers in Piccadilly Circus, so keep your eyes peeled in coming months.
