A remarkable exhibition of the work of Elpida Hadzi-Vasileva: Making Beauty, for which I am co-curator. It has already had a soft summer opening in Nottingham but its formal preview will take place on 22nd September at the Djanogly Gallery. The show combines Elpida’s two major projects of 2015 – her exhibition in the Vatican Pavilion at the Venice Biennale and then only one month later a new installation at Fabrica Brighton - into one new architectural interpretation.

The private view is on 22 September when I will be giving a talk from 6-7pm: Material Culture. A smaller version of Making Beauty will be shown at Danielle Arnaud Gallery in London in early 2017.

The summer launch of Making Beauty has led to some excellent publicity. These articles give the best introduction to her beautiful and extraordinary use of materials:

I am also delighted to announce that Elpida has just been given a Golden Award at the Osten Drawing Biennial in Skopje. See also the essay These paper bullets of the brain (PDF), a survey of the work by British artists in the Osten collection.
