‘Inside: Artists and Writers in Reading Prison’ is the latest project from arts producers Artangel and sees artists including Marlene Dumas, Steve McQueen, Wolfgang Tillmans and Nan Goldin exhibiting works in the former jail which, from 1895 to 1897, included Oscar Wilde amongst its inmates. Fisun Güner reports on an ambitious and moving exhibition.
Recorded deep inside a granite mountain in Scotland, Maria Fusco’s Artangel/BBC Radio 4 commission, Master Rock, tells the story of the men who 50 years ago risked their lives to create the Cruachan hydro-electric power station, and the artist whose mural was commissioned at the site to mark its opening. Moira Jeffrey reports.
Artangel‘s latest commission, a site-specific outdoor performance piece from theatre director and dramaturg Lu Kemp, explores our changing experiences of ageing, care provision, family and gender through three intimate vignettes involving an older man and young boy. Pippa Koszerek finds out more from the director.
