Mighty Beauty, Mighty Beast, by Anna Pogudz

I am very happy to post here the annoucement of a show I am co-curating with Paul Carey-Kent. Millenial Polish artist Anna Pogudz is presenting in her first solo show a combination of paintings, installation and animation in this quirky half-serious critic of consumerism and social media, half-poking fun exhibition, the result of two years of painting and creating, between London and South of France, Monaco.

This show was first planned to take place in spring 2020 at Arthouse1, Bermondsey where Rebecca Fairman had ran the space for several years and offered a vibrant platform for emerging artists to get discovered. She sadly died just a few weeks before the date. Covid19 then gave the final knock to the project. The exhibtiion was then rescheduled for the autumn, and cancelled again with the abrupt arrival of the second UK lockdown. The show finally opened on the 8th December 2020 at Bermondsey Project Space. https://project-space.london

Exceptional Art Exploration

Friday 28th February, 11.30 am (meeting at 11.15 am)
Somerset House, Strand, London WC2R 1LA

 Come and visit the excellent fair of modern craft and design (16th edition), which this year takes place at Somerset House, on the Strand (London WC2R 1LA). This event is supported by the Crafts Council and encourages contemporary craft.

Contemporary craft and design is a growing market, with international galleries and collectors taking increasing interest in this discipline. Artists from over the world, including from leading design countries such as Japan and France, will show works created in the last five years.

We will explore exceptional pieces created by living artists in a beautifully curated context, with views over the Fountain Court of the Somerset House. We will start with an introduction by one of the curators of the exhibition, and after that continue together to a selection of galleries with further talks by gallerists, the artists, or myself. 

After the tour you can stay at the VIP lounge as long as you want, and re-use your ticket to come back at the weekend, should you wish to.

Places are limited. I have one timeslot guaranteed, and a second one on reserve depending on interest, so do let me know as soon as you can if you are interested. The tour will start at 11.30 am promptly, so we will meet at 11.15 am.
