Cornelia Parker announced as the first Annual Patron of Art UK

British sculptor and installation artist Cornelia Parker has been announced as the first ever Annual Patron of Art UK. She is the first of a series of Annual Patrons, drawn from the art and museum world, that the charity will appoint to help promote its work as the digital platform for the UK’s publicly funded art collections. Speaking on her appointment, Cornelia Parker said “I am hugely honoured to have been asked to be Art UK’s first Annual Patron. Their work to raise the profile of less well-known artists in UK public collections has immeasurable value. I am so happy they are now turning to sculpture and look forward to supporting them in 2018!" It is particularly appropriate that the inaugural Patron is a sculptor as Art UK is just starting a three-year project to make the UK the first country in the world to create a free-to-access online photographic showcase

Foley Gallery opens Active Beige, a group exhibition curated by Lauren Seiden

Foley Gallery is presenting Active Beige, a group exhibition curated by Lauren Seiden, featuring work by Abdolreza Aminlari, Adam Henry, Kenny Curwood, Kristen Jensen and Suzanne Song. Every single piece Seiden selected/included in this show are works that are underexposed and have not yet been exhibited. Each piece operates aspure manifestations of the artist's abstract mind, their practice, complexities, struggles and triumphs within the studio. The works of Active Beige pursue a collective challenge to the current functionality of the gallery space. Pushing past the distributed network awaiting the show documentation online, this exhibition encourages a pause. In exchange for immediacy and dissemination, the works request deliberation and dialog as they bridge the flattened space between the studio and the gallery wall.
