  • Visitor Information

Turner Shortlisted British artist Yinka Shonibare has bought this former office block, in need of some attention, and hardly changed a thing. While the artist decides what he's going to do with the site, Sunbury House plays host to a series of events and exhibitions. The first, 'Three BY Three', staged in December 2008, gave three arts professionals the following brief: choose three artists you like for a group show every other month. Artist Daniel Coopey kicked things off when he curated 'Urchin Eater'. Next up, Chloe Vaitsou takes on the challenge of transforming the barely disguised bland office space into an art gallery.
