Superconductor (All afternoon)

A multitude of entrances, exits, corridors and courtyards in which to roam, explore or sit quietly and contemplate. A bold and adventurous temporary artwork by artists Gaia Alessi and Richard Bradbury.

Moose (All afternoon)

Moose is a graffiti artist … with a difference. Leaving a temporary imprint through the environmental friendly process of removing dirt with water, he will change the way you see the Square.
