With a solo show at ICA and as part of a group exhibition at Eastside Projects, Sonia Boyce is exploring ideas around play, improvisation and sculpture – including a collaborative project with ukuele-playing skateboarders. Anneka French talks to the artist during the first of two lively, nerve-wracking performances in Birmingham, as skaters fly by and instruments are played.

Dave Beech’s book Art and Value was the subject of a recent symposium at London’s ICA that raised important questions about such diverse areas as the role of arts organisations, corporate sponsorship and paying artists. Laura Harris attended and found pockets of insight in an incohesive day.
