Bicycle Wheel is a series of art events around cycling in June and July 2011 as part of View Tube Art. Gavin Turk & Ben Wilson, Kobberling Kaltwasser, Colin Priest and ‘The Bicycle Thieves’ are creating new pedal powered vehicles, finishing lines for cycling races, 100 ringing bicycle bells and a play on BMX’s. Bicycle Wheel was conceived by Invisible Dust curator Alice Sharp and is inspired by Marcel Duchamp’s Bicycle Wheel, 1913, the first ready-made, which challenges the assumptions of what is art. Bicycle Wheel is funded by the Arts Council of England and celebrates the joy of riding a bicycle whilst highlighting the need for more thoughtful, sustainable and pleasurable ways to travel.
