FiveFootSix / Children In Need – The Art of Ping Pong
In aid of BBC’s Children In Need, we curated ‘The Art of Ping Pong’, along with our regular collaborators FiveFootSix.
The two-week show was a presentation of artist-customised Ping Pong paddles, which coincided with their listing on an online auction. Many of our favourite artists, illustrators, and designers – including Crispin Finn, Pete Fowler, Malarky, Rob Flowers, Edward Carvalho Monaghan and 16 more – kindly contributed bats.
The exhibition raised over £3,500 for charity, and gained publicity for the charity from a number of daily national papers and websites, and, perhaps most notably, saw the Beach team featured on the BBC on the Children In Need programme, presenting the bats in person!
