The Mighty Scheme is Graham Fagen‘s first solo exhibition in London since ‘The Golden Age’ his 2001 show at the ICA. This exhibition is a collaboration between Matt’s Gallery and CGP London and takes place at The Gallery, Dilston Grove, Southwark Park, London SE16 2UA  and runs from Thursday May 5th to June 26th.

The Mighty Scheme presents Fagen’s most ambitious survey exhibition to date, in part comprising a new body of work originally conceived and exhibited as part of the Scotland + Venice, 56th International Art Exhibition of the Venice Biennale (curated by Lucy Byatt, Director of Hospitalfield, Arbroath). The Venetian works were made in response to the four noble rooms of Palazzo Fontana, a 16th century building located on the Grand Canal in Venice.Graham Fagen: Rose

The Mighty Scheme brings together this impressive body of work together with recent works on paper commissioned by Glasgow School of Art as part of GENERATION: 25 Years of Contemporary Art in Scotland and other new work previously unseen.

Fagen’s limited edition ROSE stems from a public art project in the Royston area of Glasgow that Fagen carried out in 2002.Click here for more information.

Tom Dale is at the TRIO Bienal in Rio, Brazil and at the Centre d’Art, Neuchatel, Switzerland

Tom Dale: The Mighty Crowns

Artist Tom Dale is having a busy 2015. After his solo show at the John Hansard gallery, Southampton that is due to tour to NIMAC in Nicosia, Cyprus, Tom is currently participating in the TRIO Bienal in Rio de Janeiro Brazil as part of ‘Reverberations – Crossed Borders of Three-dimensionality’ where he is also showing his edition with The Multiple Store ‘The Mighty Crowns’, illustrated above.

For The Mighty Crowns, which takes its name from a set of rockets that illuminate the sky with crown-like formations, he has performed a simple substitution by casting them in bronze. The weight of the bronze from which they are made tells us that (like strange sceptres) these rockets will never fly, nor will they explode to light up the night-time sky.

“I see these attempts to reach the infinite as rituals that try to fix meaning, just as the grand memorials and monuments in bronze try, but ultimately fail, to fix memories in time.”

Tom Dale, 2014

Tom’s work is also included in The Thousand-Thigh Hospice:experiments in healing a six-week long programme of exhibitions, performances, concerts, conferences, workshops that run until 3 October 2015 in Neuchatel, Switzerland and that celebrate the 20th anniversary of the Centre d’Art Neuchatel. For The Thousand-Thigh Hospice:experiments in healing a Tom has created a new sculpture ‘Last Night Was Different’ (image below, courtesy of the artist) is the latest in a line of inflatable objects produced using unconventional materials.

Anya Gallaccio’s new solo exhibition at the Museum of Contemporary Art in San Diego

Anya Gallaccio’s new solo exhibition has just opened at the Museum of Contemporary Art in San Diego (MCASD) Downtown, Jacobs Building and will run until November 1st. Gallaccio is known for installations that employ organic materials that are subject to change and decay—flowers and fruit, sugar and ice—even as her work is inflected with a minimalist vocabulary suggesting durability and timelessness. For this exhibition, Gallaccio worked with students to build an unlikely technology: a 3D printer for clay to render a version of the iconic national monument, Devils Tower. Gallaccio joins a primal art material, clay, with a futuristic innovation, the 3D printer. Click here to read more about this exhibition.

For The Multiple Store, Anya Gallaccio created a multiple called Cast that brings together a handful of real English acorns and one unique cast bronze acorn in a box specially produced by BookWorks for the project. The buyer is invited to plant the acorns for the future, keep them to dry out and die or throw them away, leaving only the cast acorn. Cast has both the association with throwaway culture and that of permanence. Click here for more information and to buy Cast.

Graham Fagen represents Scotland at the 56th Edition Venice Biennale which runs until 22 November 2015.

Fagen’s specially-created body of work is exhibited at Palazzo Fontana, a Venetian palace off the Grand Canal in the Cannaregio district of Venice. The complex and intriguing show involves a number of collaborations, including work with composer Sally Beamish, the musicians of the Scottish Ensemble, and reggae singer Ghetto Priest (pictured above).

Lucy Byatt of Hospitalfield Arts, who curated the exhibition, first worked with Fagen on the artist’s acclaimed public art project in Royston, Glasgow, which was the genesis of ROSE, Fagen’s multiple published by The Multiple Store in 2013.

Terminal Blue: Tom Dale at Southampton’s John Hansard Gallery until the 7th of February

Two of Tom Dale’s major recent works, Terminal Blue and Infinity are currently on show as part of a solo exhibition at Southampton’s John Hansard Gallery until 7th of February. Terminal Blue is a giant banner of a dark-to-light-blue colour swatch being towed by a plane through the ether at certain times of day, as advertised in the local paper. Gallery-based Infinity Wall features images of the art space that are being constantly recorded, printed and shredded to make a nest of scrapped moments. Meanwhile, an ornate suburban conservatory has had its double glazing removed and been stuffed with books the artist bought in job lots from car boot sales. For more information go to the John Hansard Gallery website.

For The Multiple Store, Tom Dale has produced The Mighty Crowns, which takes its name from a set of rockets that illuminate the sky with crown-like formations; he has performed a simple substitution by casting them in bronze. It is a set of three rocket-like bronzes, available for purchase on this website.
