An unveiling at The Natural History Museum, revealed the event will  be held along the road itself, celebrating its redesigned form led by Dixon Jones Architects, while promoting young artists, thinkers and musicians.

 Curated by producer Di Robinson of arts production consultancy Dream, it is being delivered in partnership with the council and the Exhibition Road Cultural group.

Visual artist Katie Paterson has already been commissioned. Her work combines art and science, exploring landscape, space and time through technology, to bring together ‘the commonplace and the cosmic,’ according to organisers.
