The Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea announces a call to artists for submissions to the InTRANSIT Festival 2016, which this year includes the Portobello Wall Public Art installation….
About the Portobello Wall Public Art Project
For many years, this particular wall was perceived as a ‘dead space’, marking the end of the journey along Portobello Road. The art installation provides an invitation for visitors to carry on their journey along the road and discover the vibrant Golborne area, and creates a visual link between two of the most well known market areas in London: Portobello Road Market and Golborne Road Market.
