At the historic headquarters of Max Mara in northern Italy, the six names of the Max Mara Art Prize for Women shortlist were revealed earlier this month. The finalists include Wimbledon College of Arts course director Tania Kovats, Central Saint Martins lecturer Emma Hart, and Chelsea College of Arts alumna Ana Genovés.
Ahead of the Prize announcement, nominee Emma Hart shares her insider’s guide to where to go in London during Frieze Week.
On Wednesday 14th October I’ll be setting out to hear what Marcus Coates has to say as he gives an artist talk at Kate MacGarry, where he has collaborated with dance artist Henry Montes on the current exhibition which tests whether contemporary dance can be of any use in society today.
The exhibition a Question Of Movement: MARCUS COATES & HENRY MONTES continues at Kate MacGarry until 24 October.
My own twinkle toes will also hot step it to Space on Mare Street where I can’t wait to see Florence Peake’s exhibition, more dance served up with a bonkers vision and sculptural excess.
David Roberts Art Foundation
On Thursday 15th October I’m hoping I get into see Caroline Achaintre, John Bock, Sue Tompkins and others present new performances at the David Roberts Art Foundation. Entry is on a first come, first served basis and it will be very busy as witnessing a “legendary’ John Bock performance is something you must do at least once in your life and Caroline Achaintre’s never presented a performance before, it’s her “live” debut. I hope I get in!
The exhibition Albert the Kid is Ghosting continues at David Roberts Art Foundation until 12 December with special opening times during Frieze Week.
