Goetz, Lothar (2020) DISCO-SQUARE, 2020 [Perspex cube, acrylic on wood 20x20x20cm] for CUBE3. [Artefact]

Item Type: Artefact


Do you know anyone with Parkinson's Disease? Most people do, and it is not surprising when you look at the statistics: there are an estimated 10 million people living with Parkinson's Disease worldwide and in the UK around 1 in 500 are diagnosed with this cruel degenerative neurological disease - that currently has no cure.

As a call to action, art and science unite with Cure3 (Cure Cubed) the acclaimed contemporary art fundraising exhibition, established in 2017 and now in its third edition, devised and curated by Artwise in partnership with Bonhams to raise awareness and funds for The Cure Parkinson's Trust.

The unique concept for Cure3 remains the same: each artist is given a bespoke Perspex cube measuring just 20cm3 as a compact space to interact with in any way to create original artworks on or within. For Cure3 2020 over 90 participating artists including leading names from the world of fashion will be participating. The resultant highly sought-after and collectable artworks will be exhibited at Bonhams from 5-8 September and sold online here with prices ranging from under £1000 to over £40,000.

The Cure Parkinson's Trust is an inspirational and dynamic charity with a major goal to find a cure for Parkinson's Disease. To date, thanks to the generosity of all the contributing artists, Cure3 has raised over ¾ million pounds for The Cure Parkinson's Trust, to fund research to slow, stop and ultimately reverse Parkinson's.

In the artist’s words: “The work is a colourful abstract composition on the wooden support of the cube, treating the support like a wall within the architectural space of the Cube. The geometry reacts to the given dimensions. Like a painting in a site-specific context, it is corresponding with the space of the cube, its materiality and light conditions. The colours are bright and bold, appearing as subtle reflections on the surrounding Perspex walls”
