Fri 7th March: Art Futures

Finally back east to The Bloomberg SPACE for Art Futures to see contemporary art by 100+ contributors. I went with my friend Lee Regan who I lived with at Brighton University and who is a practising sculptor..........so it was good news to read that apparently "sculpture is in the ascendancy"! By contrast conventional painting is currently taking a back seat whilst collage and drawing are "growing status". There was also plenty of "performativity" and live work. Its an exciting and unusual environment of a show with pieces being rehung and taken down around you. As soon as something is sold it is replaced so the selection is everchanging and not static like a regular curated exhibit. The artists are chosen and then displayed on rotation so whenever you visit the show it will not look the same.............
