Immerse yourself in our newest art exhibition on The Tide. Featuring works by Ian Davenport & Marwan Kaabour, both artists used the River Thames as inspiration to individually transform the The Tide into a colourful expression of Greenwich Peninsula.  

As part of an ongoing exploration of colour, Turner Prize nominee Ian Davenport has reimagined the entrance stairwell of The Tide to reveal ‘Poured Staircase’. Davenport has created an immersive river of colour that cascades down the Tide staircase in parallel stripes. Well known for his abstract paintings, which explore process and materiality, Davenports encourages visitors to walk across the artwork as it flows across this transitional space of The Tide. 

The Tide’s glass facades have become a fluid space of endless iterations as London-based, Beirut-born artist Marwan Kaabour presents The River in Verse, a lyrical and poetic mirror of the river Thames. The artwork is a series of multilingual text extracts that contemplate water, fluidity and expressiveness of its ebb and flow. The artwork incorporates English, Greek, Polish, French, Farsi, Arabic, Yoruba, Mandarin and Turkish languages, which resonate with communities in Greenwich and on the Peninsula. 

While visiting, don't miss the meditation points dotted around The Tide and enjoy the beautiful views from London's Linear Walkway. The Tide’s winding path begins at the end of Peninsula Square and ends on the banks of the River Thames. Open from 7:00 – 220:00 daily, Ian Davenport & Marwaan Kaabour’s installations on The Tide are free to visit.
