Top artists create 'Pandamonium' in Hyde Park

Pandamonium 2012 is an exciting fusion of art and nature, highlighting the global work of WWF. The project challenged leading contemporary minds from the art, fashion and design world to create wearable sculpture, expressing the breadth of the organization's conservation work and some of the most imminent threats to our natural environment.

Set in The Old Gate House in London's Hyde Park, at 6:30 pm on May 24th 2012, Pandamonium will be an evening of unforgettable performances, with an open air catwalk show, auction by Phillips de Pury, mouth-watering food and champagne reception.

Curated by Artwise, each artist contributed a piece of wearable sculpture or performance. Here is the list:

Hussein Chalayan, The North Circular (Katherine Poulton & Lily Cole), English Eccentrics, Nicola Formichetti, Zaha Hadid, Stuart Haygarth & Sian Evans, Stephen Jones Millinery & Bouke de Vries, Idris Khan, Susie MacMurray, Rowan Mersh, Lisa Milroy, Annie Morris, Lucy + Jorge Orta, Grayson Perry, Nina Saunders, Conrad Shawcross, Studio Roso, Sue Timney & Alix Timney, Julie Verhoeven, Wayne Hemingway, Jennifer Walshe, and Richard Wilson.
