New programmes launch at Frieze New York

The 7th edition of Frieze New York (3-6 May) will see three ‘firsts’ for the fair. In addition to a new layout designed by Universal Design Studio, new programmes and curators are among the innovative concepts that have been introduced for 2018.


A ‘first’ for this year’s show is ‘Live’, a platform for interactive projects, installations and performances themed around protest marches and street performance, curated by Performa curator Adrienne Edwards.


After its London success, Frieze Artist Award will launch at Frieze New York 2018. Frieze Artist Award is an international open call for an emerging artist to realise a site-specific work, also curated by Adrienne Edwards and supported by the LUMA Foundation. This year’s winner is Kapwani Kiwanga.


Finally, Frieze New York’s first ever themed section will pay homage to Hudson’s Feature Inc. New York gallery which supported the careers of many pioneering artists in the 1980s and 1990s. The section will be curated by artist, curator, writer and publisher Matthew Higgs.



Sebastian Errazuriz steals museum sculptures for new body of work at David Gill Gallery

New York based design-art polymath, Sebastian Errazuriz will stage his first-ever solo show in the UK in June 2018 at London’s David Gill Gallery. The exhibition will showcase Greek and Roman masterpieces from renowned museums, 3D scanned, digitally manipulated and re-cast in marble as functional sculptures.


Errazuriz brings together high and low tech to “steal” classical sculptures he has been fond of since childhood. Errazuriz states, “It’s an act of gluttony and lust to appropriate that which belongs to the sacred world of the arts and use it freely in an exploration of its boundaries within the realm of the functional and the mundane.”


Parallel to the investigation between art and design, Errazuriz dives headstrong into the question of breakage as a vital aesthetic resource, whether it is historical and accidental, or artistic and purposeful.

Exhibition dates:  01 June – 04 July 2018

Glenn Ligon to unveil significant new work in Naples

This spring, Thomas Dane Gallery Naples presents Glenn Ligon’s first solo exhibition in Italy. The acclaimed American artist has created a number of new works for the exhibition, inspired by its location and drawing on Italy’s literary history as a source.


The exhibition will feature a series of large-scale silkscreen and ink marker paintings, alongside two new neon works, and paintings from Ligon’s iconic Stranger series. The works consider major themes of migration and identity politics within a Neapolitan setting.


Unlike most of his other works on canvas, the silkscreen and ink marker paintings which Ligon will premiere in Naples do not start with a specific text but with letters as their primary element. Ligon seeks in his new works an even purer, more abstracted form of expression. Further works in the exhibition punctuate and reframe Ligon’s investigation of language and interpretation, complicating notions of margin and centre – of who ‘belongs’ and who is the ‘guest’ here.


Exhibition dates: 23 April – 28 July 2018



Michele Oka Doner’s forthcoming solo show calls for a return to ritual

Michele Oka Doner presents Bringing the Fire, the artist’s second solo exhibition at London’s David Gill Gallery, this March 2018. Drawing on her longstanding curiosity with nature, Oka Doner’s new works explore the early role of fire in ritual and its dislocation from contemporary life.


Exhibiting pieces include Michele’s most ambitious bronze casting to date, Alter II, alongside bronze sculptures Sparks and Burning Bush. Giant works on paper, imprinted with ink-infused organic material, reflect a transcendental yearning to return to a primal relationship with nature.


Michele’s career spans five decades and her work is held in permanent collections at museums including the V&A, the Louvre, the Whitney, the Metropolitan Museum in New York and the Art Institute of Chicago.


Exhibition dates: 21 March 2018 – 25 April 2018

Dogs Have Their Day at South Place Hotel

Tonico Lemos Auad at Stephen Friedman Gallery

Stephen Friedman Gallery is proud to present London-based Brazilian artist Tonico Lemos Auad’s third solo exhibition at the gallery. Auad disregards material value to create lyrical, often transient forms using a wide range of materials, from the ephemeral and everyday to the precious and enduring. Notions of luck, traditional anecdotes, chance, and the supernatural pervade Auad’s work. But, beyond playfulness, his work resonates with a darker underbelly of existence. For Auad, an awareness of death and the brevity of life are always near to hand. The exhibition will comprise a series of new works across both gallery spaces, and a monograph on the artist’s career-to-date will be launched.

Best of 2017 from Scott & Co

And so, to end another fantastic year at Scott & Co, we review our highlights and celebrate the success of everyone with whom we worked.


NOMAD brightened our January by announcing the participating galleries for their debut edition, which opened late April in Monaco. Back in the British countryside, Chatsworth House readied itself for the landmark exhibition, House Style: Five Centuries of Fashion, curated by Hamish Bowles. In February, we put we put on our party shoes for a spectacular Sambazonia Carnaval to introduce SUSHISAMBA’s new partnership with the charity Cool Earth.


Blooming in time for spring, sketch presented the second edition of the Mayfair Flower Show with perfume house Diptyque and Pommery Champagne. We journeyed to Gal Weinstein’s immersive environment at the Israeli Pavilion at la Biennale di Venezia. Whilst in Venice, we heard Mark Bradford and Okwui Enwezor in conversation with Christopher Bedford on inclusive art history, as part of Solidary and Solitary: The Pamela J. Joyner and Alfred J. Giuffrida Collection – a touring exhibition currently at the Ogden Museum of Southern Art in New Orleans, and set to travel to six other locations throughout 2018.


Artistic inspiration was all around, as BALTIC Centre for Contemporary Art, Gateshead, announced the BALTIC Artists’ Award, the first international biennial award judged solely by artists. As summer sailed across the capital, Frieze Sculpture launched in Regent’s Park for the first time in the fair’s history, and we got festive with the Royal Academy of Arts, hosting Christmas in July in the elegant surrounds of the Academicians’ Room.


Turning to autumn, South Place Hotel welcomed a new art collection, comprising works by critically-acclaimed artist Sam Taylor-Johnson and Howard Tangye, with a glamourous party in their Secret Garden Bar. Stuart Shave Modern Art announced the opening of a second gallery on Vyner Street, with Josh Kline’s Civil War as its inaugural exhibition. Kline’s transatlantic gaze was similarly present at Frieze Art Fair 2017, where highlights included the new section Sex Work: Feminist Art & Radical Politics; work by Frieze artist-award winning Kiluanji Kia Henda in Frieze Projects; and a recreation of Peter Blake’s studio by Waddington Custot at Frieze Masters.


Meanwhile, at Thomas Dane Gallery’s London space, American photographer Catherine Opie exhibited new works from her ongoing series Portraits and Landscapes, and David Gill Gallery staged Intuitive Gestures by Fredrikson Stallard. Across the city, Kehinde Wiley, the artist officially commissioned to paint Barack Obama’s portrait, opened ‘In Search of the Miraculous’ at Stephen Friedman Gallery, whilst at sketch, our minds and bodies were meditatively transfixed by Chris Levine’s ‘Silent Light’ Christmas installation. Further afield in Amsterdam, renowned architect Rem Koolhaas designed a pioneering new overhaul of the Stedelijk Museum in for a major rehang that reimagines how we look at 20th and 21st Century art.


It has been an extraordinarily busy and rewarding year for us at Scott & Co, and 2018 promises further excitement and innovation. We look forward to seeing you then!
