Living La Bella Verde

Located on the Spanish island of Ibiza, La Bella Verde is the island’s first and only solar powered catamaran experience. Starting with just one boat in 2014, the pioneering eco-charter company was founded by friends Charlie, Alastair and Maarten with a dream of offering a zero-emission boating experience.

 

The venture has seen continued success and will be buoyed by the introduction of two new boats in time for the busy 2018 summer season. The team have their sights set on distant shores with the launch of a new boat building service which will offer hotels and tour operators the world over to own and operate their very own carbon-neutral launch.

‘Talisman in the Age of Difference’ by Yinka Shonibare MBE at Stephen Friedman Gallery

This seminal exhibition is a journey of encounters that explores ideas of magic and subversive beauty in work by artists of African origin and across the diaspora and artists who empathise with the spirit of African resistance and representation. Curated by the esteemed artist, Yinka Shonibare MBE, the exhibition presents an eclectic and surprising range of works, including painting, sculpture, drawing and other objects from the early twentieth century to the present day.
 
As with his own practice, Shonibare has selected artists who make provocative work that consciously belies a subversive and political message and does not necessarily conform to a western vision of art. The civil rights movement and identity politics are explored by a number of artists here, whilst others pursue an alternative path in their shared search for originality, spirituality and the sublime. Artists exhibiting range from emerging talent to established names including Lubaina Himid, Isaac Julien, Genevieve Mickalene Thomas, Kehinde Wiley, and Bill Traylor.
 
The exhibition runs until 21 July.

Signals: If You Like I Shall Grow by kurimanzutto at Thomas Dane Gallery

In an appropriately international collaboration this summer, Mexico City gallery kurimanzutto present Signals: If You Like I Shall Grow. It is the first exhibition to reunite the works of Signals London’s three founding artists, David Medalla, Gustav Metzger, and Marcello Salvadori, while also tracing the global impact resulting from the confluence of interests generated at that specific point in art history.

 

The gallery Signals London (1964-1966) was a renowned experimental space and international hub, celebrated for its ground-breaking solo exhibition series by major artists including Lygia Clark, Jesus Rafael Soto, and Mira Schendel. While it was active, Signals London used group exhibitions to expose and create aesthetic relationships between the diverse national and international avant-garde networks of its founders. Following this approach, Signals: If You Like I Shall Grow acts as part of a process of research, guided by the possibility of tracing these wider networks and seeking to define a connection between past and present gallery models.

 

Borrowing from Signals London’s collaborative ethos, kurimanzutto is hosted in London by Thomas Dane Gallery. The expansive exhibition is held across both Duke Street gallery spaces, featuring the work of 37 international artists. It brings together historic works from public and private collections, reconnecting artists who worked across Latin America, the USA and Western Europe. The two galleries will extend their partnership in 2019 when kurimanzutto host Thomas Dane Gallery for a show in Mexico City.

 

The exhibition runs 8 June – 21 July.

Sebastian Errazuriz turns renowned classical sculptures into functional objects

The New York based, Chilean born artist/designer Sebastian Errazuriz has released a new provocative body of work featuring functional sculptures and accessories. The collection, launched in June at David Gill Gallery, features ancient Greek and Roman masterpieces that Errazuriz has ‘stolen’ from museums around the world, including The British Museum, Le Louvre and The Vatican, and appropriated into everyday objects.

 

The works include a dramatic timber bookcase wrapped around the ‘Winged Goddess Nike’ and shelves featuring the heads of Julius Caesar and the Emperor Augustus, among other famous artworks. Smaller works, such as a series of paperweights, invite the viewer to question the mysterious beauty of broken antiquity.
 
‘I use technology to “steal” classical sculptures I have revered since childhood. Claim their shapes as raw material to build my own new works. 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’.
– Sebastian Errazuriz.

 

Exhibition dates: 01 June – 04 July 2018
