Explore our newest art exhibition on The Tide. Ian Davenport & Marwan Kaabour have launched their beautiful pieces in Greenwich Peninsula, both using the Thames River as inspiration.
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 has become a fluid space of endless iterations as London-based, Buirut-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.
The Tide is open from 8am - 11pm daily and is free to visit.
