Michael Dean: Sic Glyphs

Michael Dean, Sic Glyphs, installation view at the South London Gallery, 2016

Whether affixed to other structures or lolling on the floor, Dean's oversized, weighty and flaccid things convey the muscular effort of communication, pushing forward an idea of language as material process and bodily struggle. They return, heaped on the floor, in ‘Sic Glyphs’, an exhibition of new work by Dean currently on display in the South London Gallery, an exhibition for which the artist has been nominated for the Turner Prize.

Gabriele Beveridge: Eternity Anyways

Eternity Anyways, Installation View

Less interested in a prescriptive rhetoric on consumer culture than exploring how the poetic and the personal can be addressed under contemporary conditions, Beveridge sits on the line between ambivalence and celebration – investigating a fascination between the lure of consumer images and objects and the values that they preserve and perpetuate.

BALTIC Artists’ Award

Eric N. Mack, A Lesson in Perspective 2017, activated by participant, BALTIC Artists' Award 2017, installation view, BALTIC Centre for Contemporary Art Gateshead.

The BALTIC Artists’ Award is a clear attempt to combat some of the issues associated with prize exhibitions through a format that provides an actual and equal opportunity for four artists to develop and showcase significant new bodies of work. The award has no limit on age or nationality, is selected by some of the world’s leading contemporary artists (who also mentor the shortlisted artists) and has no ‘winners’ or ‘losers,’ with prize money (totalling £30,000 per artist) shared equally amongst the four.

Walk&Talk

Walk&Talk 2017, Joao Paulo, Serafim Naturalis Historiae

For the last seven years, the contemporary art festival Walk&Talk, has been bringing international artists to the Azores to make work in the galleries, museums, and streets of Ponta Delgada and further afield across the rest of São Miguel and Terceira. This year’s programme engages with the unique location, natural environment and history of the islands with playful, self-referential and at times antagonistic artworks considering what it means to live and make work at the periphery.
