On Tuesday, the new U.S. Embassy in London opens with the unveiling of a work by British artist Rachel Whiteread, who has been commissioned alongside Jenny Holzer and Mark Bradford to create large-scale, site-specific works for the new building. Bradford’s We The People (2016)—32 panels containing the entire U.S. Constitution—will fill the atrium of the new embassy when it is installed in February. And Jenny Holzer’s quote call-out project, featuring quotes selected by students in the U.S. and the U.K., will be carved in granite on a wall besides the embassy’s water features.
