Anticipation at Selfridges

Just a couple of days left to see this interesting show at the ultralounge in Selfridges.  I would definitely recommend a trip. 

I particularly enjoyed the paintings of Gareth Cadwallader.  All details here and below:

Uber art curators Kay Saatchi, Catriona Warren and Robert Dingle have teamed up to create the now annual art exhibition, Anticipation.

The group exhibition is a culmination of the time Saatchi, Warren and Dingle, who have between them over 40 years experience in the art world, spent scouring 250 of London’s graduate art shows and studios in order to handpick the most exciting emerging talent.

21 artists have been selected to appear in Anticipation, which will be hosted in the Ultralounge, Selfridges London.

The curators made their decisions based on whether the artists showed the creative and intellectual potential to continue producing thought-provoking work for years to come.

Anticipation provides the artists with a platform to present their work, which includes film, painting and photography and sell it, with all the proceeds from all sales going in to their own pockets.

The exhibition begins on 8 October and runs until 7 November.

Carpe Diem - New Christian Marclay edition

Here is a new edition from Christian Marclay at the white cube.  Looks fun.  All details below

Christian Marclay's practice often revolves around the manipulation of sounds and music. 'Carpe Diem' is an instrument which resembles a time piece, but instead of being a working watch with mechanisms and a clock face, the artwork is a flat silver reflective face, with ball bearings within, creating a jarring, jangling sound much like a rattle or defunct tik-tok.

'Carpe Diem' was released in conjunction with the opening of Marclay's most recent exhibition at White Cube, which features the 'The Clock', a video work edited from thousands of fragments of films to create a 24-hour film, shown in real time. It is constructed out of moments in cinema when time is expressed or when a character interacts with a clock, watch or just a particular time of day.

Edition of 40
Sterling silver, steel ball bearings, leather
25 x 3 x 0.8 cm

£ 950.00 +VAT
