The Project

Cypher BILLBOARD is a project run by artists Holly Graham, Erin Hughes and Amba Sayal-Bennett, that seeks to commission responsive site-specific artworks for a billboard space in Bounds Green, London. The site hopes to challenge conventions of display, and act as a launch-pad for generating conversations, through a series of satellite events and workshops. It provides an alternative space and framework for developing new work, holding its own rules and limitations as well as freedoms and extensions.

The Cypher BILLBOARD project launched in September 2017 and the site has hosted sixteen poster artworks to date, as well as a series of accompanying events and offsite projects.

Cypher

Cypher BILLBOARD takes its title from a previously-active project space and collective of the same name. Founded in Berlin in 2015 by artists Erin Hughes, László von Dohnányi, and Emma Papworth, Cypher began as a weekly group critique meeting and later evolved into a project space and migrating visual arts programme, through which artists were invited to present new works. In 2016 Cypher hosted an exhibition titled 'Backdrop' as part of Art Licks Weekend - the first of many on-going projects based in London.
