Tracey Emin & Sir Frank Bowling to support Parkinson’s exhibition, Cure Parkinson’s in association with Bonhams and Artwise have announced the fourth edition of Cure3 – the critically acclaimed selling exhibition devised to raise awareness and funds for curative Parkinson’s research. The selling exhibition will take place at Bonhams London, with VIP Preview on 12th January and public viewing from 13-17th January 2023. All works are available to view and purchase on cure3.co.uk
We are hugely grateful to Bonhams and all the distinguished artists involved for their generosity and enthusiasm for Cure3. The creativity of our ‘cubists’ never ceases to amaze us and each response has been unique, original and different from the next one – now with our 4th edition of Cure3, we felt it was a good time to push the concept and literally think outside of the box. We are delighted to announce two entirely new approaches to the familiar ‘cube’ concept. Artists have been offered a choice between a 3D cube Perspex box space or a 2D square panel and it’s been exciting to see sculptors as well as painters use the square as part of their work in inventive and innovative ways. We are also excited to announce the addition of specially commissioned NFTs for Cure3 2023, trialling a new format of charitable giving in the crypto world.Susie Allen and Laura Culpan of Artwise said:
A stellar list of almost 90 internationally renowned artists for Cure3, including returning ‘cubists’, Ron Arad, Rana Begum, Conrad Shawcross, Idris Khan, Mona Hatoum and Polly Morgan will be joined for the first time by one of the UK’s most iconic artists, Tracey Emin. Also new for 2023 will be the addition of 2-dimensional, 20 x20 cm works by artists including Sir Frank Bowling which will be shown alongside the traditional Cure3 format of original artworks created in or on 20cm3 perspex boxes.
Cure3 are also heading into the metaverse with the inclusion of specially commissioned NFTs, working with generative artists minting NFTs and experts in the field, Foteini Valeonti and Alex Estorick. Prices for these highly sought-after works, whether flat, digital or cube range from £1,000 to £80,000.
All profits from Cure3 go directly to help fund vital curative research into Parkinson’s; the fastest-growing degenerative neurological condition in the world, which affects around 10 million people globally.
To date, Cure3 has generated in excess of £1.2 million in sales and secured the generous support of 176 leading artists who have created 220 highly collectable ‘cube’ artworks.

Cure3 is devised by Susie Allen and Laura Culpan from Artwise, the dynamic curatorial team behind the original RCA Secret postcard project, Art for Your World and Tomorrow’s Tigers for WWF-UK. Cure3 has established itself as a critical and commercial success, securing plaudits from a host of international media including SKY News, BBC News, F.T, How To Spend It, The Evening Standard, The Sunday Times, The Observer Magazine, The Telegraph, The Art Newspaper, Wallpaper* and World of Interiors – as well as raising significant funds for the ongoing work of CP.
It’s wonderful to be announcing the fourth iteration of Cure3, now a well-established feature in the calendar for art aficionados and collectors, as well as an important funding source for Cure Parkinson’s research programme. We’re extremely grateful to all the artists who have contributed their time, talent and work to the event, and excited to see that the Cure3 cube format has continued to stimulate and inspire original, beautiful and witty pieces, even as it continues to develop and extend. We’re greatly looking forward to being able to see the full exhibition on display at Bonhams in January.Charles Kirwan-Taylor, Chair of the Cure3 committee

More about Parkinson’s and the charity, Cure Parkinson’s
Parkinson’s is a debilitating condition affecting over 145,000 people in the UK and 10 million people worldwide and set to double by 2040 (2). Every hour in the UK, 2 people are told they have Parkinson’s and it is predicted that 1 in 37 will be diagnosed with Parkinson’s in their lifetime. This degenerative condition, characterised by body tremors and progressive loss of mobility, presents a significant challenge to those living with the condition and their families. Whilst there are treatments that can help with some of the symptoms of Parkinson’s, there is currently no cure.
Co-Founded by Tom Isaacs in 2005 – Cure Parkinson’s (CP), formerly The Cure Parkinson’s Trust – is a charity created by and for people living with Parkinson’s with one bold aim – to find a cure for Parkinson’s. This year marks the 10th anniversary of the charity’s International Linked Clinical Trials (iLCT) programme. a drug repurposing and repositioning initiative which aims to significantly reduce the time it takes to bring treatments to clinic for the Parkinson’s community by testing drugs that have already been approved for use to treat other medical conditions. Since it was launched over 3,700 people have taken part in iLCT trials; 17 trials are ongoing, 11 trials have completed and 40 drugs are actively being pursued within the programme.
The funds raised by Cure3 support the essential work carried out by Cure Parkinson’s and offer hope to millions of people currently living with the condition.In 2005, the goal of Cure Parkinson’s was to render the charity redundant by finding a cure for the condition – in 2023 our aim is to fulfil the dream of Tom Isaacs and finally consign Parkinson’s to a disease of the past.
