Celebrating the extraordinary world of mobile art vehicles
in Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park
20th – 21st September, 2014

For the first time in the UK, Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park is hosting a celebration of ingenious and extraordinary mobile art vehicles from across the country. From the smallest portable theatre, to a fully functioning mobile artist’s studio – this is an open call inviting art vehicles on land, sea or air to join this unique event and explore what it means for art to travel and be mobile.

Portability: Art on the Move marks the end of the East London Mobile Workshop (ELMO), a year-long programme commissioned by Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park as part of our arts and culture programme in and around the Park. Over the course of a year ELMO, a 1970’s Bedford Bus, has been transformed into a roaming artist’s studio and used as a platform to deliver a participatory arts and crafts programme in a variety of locations and contexts

The event is being curated by Adriana Marques, Head of Arts and Culture for Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park and Fiona Boundy, curator and project director for ELMO.

The London Legacy Development Corporation promotes and delivers physical, social, economic and environmental regeneration in Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park and the surrounding area, in particular by maximising the legacy of the London 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games.  Download pdf of art in the park:
