The real, everyday city can only be portrayed in light of the emotions, memories, desires, imagination and commitment of the people who inhabit it. Canaletto, Berckheyde, Pissarro, Derain, Prendergast, Rozanova and Sheeler experienced the city in such a special way that they came to see it as an intrinsic part of themselves. Using their experiences and artworks as a springboard, we invite you to post on Instagram with the hashtag #AndThatsWhyILoveYouCity and tell us about the places in your city that are special to you, composing a short but sweet declaration of love. Together we’ll create a great visual compilation of urban love letters that will help us to reflect on the public spaces of our cities.
