Charles Kirwan-Taylor, Chairman of Cure3, said "We are delighted to be partnering with Artwise curators and Bonhams to deliver the third edition of the unique art show, Cure 3. It is uplifting to see that even in the current environment so many incredible artists have once again donated their time and their talent to create artworks to be sold to raise funds for research with the potential to cure Parkinson's."
Parkinson's is a debilitating condition affecting over 145,000 people in the UK and 10 million people worldwide. Co-Founded by Tom Isaacs in 2005, The Cure Parkinson's Trust (CPT) is a charitable organisation created by and for people living with Parkinson's with one bold aim – to find a cure for Parkinson's.
For the last 15 years CPT has been committed to funding ground-breaking research into new treatments and to date, Cure3 has raised more than ¾ million pounds support this vital work.
CPT is the only Parkinson's charitable organisation in the UK solely focussed on finding a cure for Parkinson's. In its 15th anniversary year, CPT can look back over numerous landmark achievements it has helped fund and support towards this ultimate goal including:
• Trials into the re-purposing of existing drugs as an effective treatment for Parkinson's and the launch of the International Linked Trials Programme (iLCT) in 2012.
• The consistent championing of the involvement of people with Parkinson's in research design and delivery of new treatments – helping to potentially speed up clinical trials, as well as ensuring that they are relevant and deliverable.
• Funding pioneering research into the development of stem cell therapies for the treatment of Parkinson's.
• Supporting the remarkable clinical trial, which also included the late Tom Isaacs as participant, involving ground-breaking surgery to deliver the protein GDNF direct to the brain using a specially designed delivery system. The trial was the subject of the award-winning BBC Documentary, The Parkinson's Drug Trial: A Miracle Cure?
Cure3 is devised by Susie Allen and Laura Culpan from Artwise, the dynamic curatorial team behind the original RCA Secret postcard project. 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 CPT.
In 2005, the goal of CPT was to render the charity redundant by finding a cure for Parkinson's. In 2020, by Supporting Cure3, we can back the essential work carried out by The Cure Parkinson's Trust and continue the legacy of Tom Isaacs with his aim of consigning Parkinson's to a disease of the past.
Harvey Cammell, Deputy Chairman of Bonhams UK, commented "Cure3 is a project Bonhams has been so proud to support since its inception, and we are truly excited to be hosting the exhibition for the third time at our New Bond Street Galleries in September. To have so many artists and designers of this calibre and diversity is phenomenal. The show and the sale will be an amazing opportunity to join the select band of previous cube collectors whilst at the same time generously contribute to this ground-breaking charity actively working to find a cure for Parkinson's Disease."
