Studio: Curated by Sheena Wagstaff

Also new this year is Studio, curated by Sheena Wagstaff (Leonard A Lauder Chair of Modern and Contemporary Art at The Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York until 2022). Its focus is the artist’s place of making, where the spark of invention becomes manifest as an object. It features five singular international artists – Maggi Hambling, Mona Hatoum, Lucia Laguna, Arlene Shechet and Hyun-Sook Song – who dig deep into past culture to inform and reinvigorate their practice. Integral to each presentation are archival images and objects, accumulated over many decades in an artist’s workroom and invoking their creative lifeline and the spirit of the studio as an ever-changing, living space.

Spotlight: Curated by Valerie Cassel Oliver

Curated for the first time by Valerie Cassel Oliver (Sydney and Frances Lewis Family Curator of Modern and Contemporary Art at the Virginia Museum of Fine Arts), Spotlight returns with solo presentations of 20th-century artists, emphasizing under-appreciated work from the 1950s to the 1970s.

This year’s featured artists include Rose Finn-Kelcey, Maren Hassinger, Zenzaburo Kojima, Anna Mark, Mehdi Moutashar, I Gusti Ayu Kadek Murniasih, Gianni Piacentino, Simona Runcan, Ethel Schwabacher and Toshiko Takaezu, among others.

Stand Out

Stand Out returns for the third consecutive year steered by Luke Syson (Director and Marlay Curator of the Fitzwilliam Museum, Cambridge). The curated section challenges traditional hierarchies of media, which are largely obsolete in contemporary art – here, artworks once dismissed as ‘decorative’ are meaningfully re-examined and reclaimed. This year, Syson’s section explores the myriad ways in which colour is key to the aesthetic of art objects and sculpture.
