Lives of the Artists
Referencing Giorgio Vasari’s Lives of the Artists, Robert Good has undertaken a contemporary historiographic take on this seminal 16th century work of artistic biographies. Compiling the results from daily internet searches for artists, Good throws subjectivity and selection out of the window for an equally problematic approach that creates an intriguing document of art now.
Until 28 February 2015 (artist’s talk, 17 February), Westminster Reference Library, London WC2.
Passage – Stuart Mayes
Interested in the material qualities of glitter, Stockholm-based artist Stuart Mayes has been investigating the way this medium reflects and disperses light, appropriating its popular and conceptual connotations to create works that are both abstract and evocative. Used in combination with found objects such as doors and jigsaws, the artist fills the missing pieces with glittering black voids.
19 February – 1 March 2015, Wip Konsthall, Stockholm, Sweden. www.a-n.co.uk/events/passage
Genetic Moo is a collaborative group of artists who create strange and fantastical creatures, animated through digital technology and interactive art games. Their digital ecosystems bring together a number of works by different artists, creating an immersive installation environment. In Margate, the group will be inviting the audience to enter the world of an infection, visualising the process of an infected blister as inflammation spreads through the human body.
20-22 February 2015, 12-6, Geek Fringe, Panay Fashions building, Margate.
No-one lives in the real world
Considering the metaphorical collage of information that forms each person’s individual interpretation of the world, Zeitgeist Art Projects have taken their curatorial starting point from a quote from W. Galin. This exhibition of sculpture, painting, drawing, photography and installation, all sharing a use of collage, contains works from Evy Jokhova, Michaela Nettell and Rachel Wilberforce among others.
20 February – 22 March, Standpoint Gallery, London N1.
