Drift 10


4th November 2010 - 6th January 2011


River Thames, from Blackfriars Bridge to Canary Wharf

Drift 10 is a unique art exhibition that takes place not on the banks of the river Thames, but actually on the water itself. With a huge variety of unusual and nautical themed pieces of art installed up and down the river, Drift 10 is due to be one of the biggest and best free art exhibitions this year.

Drift 10
Four pieces of watery art feature in Drift 10, with contributions from many major and international artists. Unusual pieces that take advantage of their floating setting mean that you can expect to see all sorts of installations and lightworks, rather than the normal watercolours of fishing boats and seagulls associated with nautical art exhibitions.

Art between the bridges
Located between Blackfriars Bridge and Canary Wharf, the art exhibition on the Thames features all sorts of installations on the river. An origami paper boat and a ghostly, wind powered fog light next to Bankside Pier are just some of the amazing installations you can expect to see in Drift 10.

Ghostly illuminations
One of the highlights of the exhibition will no doubt be bit.fall installations outside the Tate Modern and at the DLR bridge by Canary Wharf. The installations take the form of a waterfall which also feature words from live newsfeeds that can be seen falling into the river alongside the water. As with most of the Drift 10 installations, these exhibitions are best seen at night.

A biennial event that brightens up the Thames every other autumn, Drift 10 is only the second art exhibition to be held on the river itself.
