Art and science unite with Cure3. Established in 2017 and now in its third edition, Cure3 was devised and curated by Artwise in partnership with Bonhams to raise awareness and funds for The Cure Parkinson's Trust.
Participating artists are each given a bespoke Perspex cube measuring just 20cm3 as a compact space to interact with and to create original artworks on or within.
