16 Sept – 28 Oct 2017

30 Contemporary British Artists make one piece of work in response to GOOD NATURE

Once a year Candida Stevens Gallery commissions a major exhibition of new work based on a concept or theme of our time. This autumn GOOD NATURE will be a celebration of our planet, its beauty and its fragility and the essential part we all play in preserving it.

Curator, Candida Stevens says “I have chosen to bring together these artists, writers and designers to concentrate our thoughts around the planet at a moment when its beauty and fragility are deeply affected by our treatment and explorations of it. I want to see how artists and thinkers will respond to this important theme. The show is curated to be a thoughtful and probing look at us and our place in the natural environment. I hope too that it will create positive reactions from those who come to see the work and want to make changes for the long term conservation of our world ”

Thomas Allen – Jonathan Ashworth – Violet Astor – Emily Ball – Michael Benson – Pippa Blake – Kate Boucher – Stephen Chambers RA – Eileen Cooper RA – Hen Coleman – Lawrence Dicks – Stephen Farthing RA – Rebecca Fontaine-Wolf – Kristina Hagstrom – Tom Hammick – Jeremy Houghton – Alice Kettle – Nicola Green – Irene Lees – Hamish Mackie – Marion MacPhee – Briony Marshall – Calum McClure – David Nash RA – Antonia Salmon – Tai-Shan Shierenberg – Giorgia Siriaco – Olivia Stanton – Almuth Tebbenhoff – Maciej Urbanek – Silvy Weatherall

Artists have an important voice in society, this is an opportunity for them to inspire us with the comment they chose to make through this exhibition and for all of us to respond.

BIJOU – LITTLE TREASURES

26 November– 20 December 2016

CHRISTMAS PARTY
Thursday 1st December, 5-8pm
Associated jewellery sale by London Designer i+i from 2-8pm

With a completely light touch and a breath of sell sell sell we announce Bijou, our shamelessly commercial Christmas exhibition. Still showing work by some of the great names, Eileen Cooper, Roger Hilton, Terry Frost we are delighted to present work by a number of artists from near and far, some you’ve seen here before, some you haven’t.

While the vast majority of news we share by email is informative and we never put pressure on sales, a few carefully selected local artists are showing work for the first time in the gallery during Bijou, so consider it patronage to your local artists to buy your Christmas presents from these individual creators.

The full list of artists is below. With a staggering 37 artists showing up to 6 small pieces each it’s going to be Dan’s biggest challenge yet to get it all installed in time. The premise of the show is small works, suitable for giving and there should be something for everyone.

To mark the beginning of December we will be aligning our Christmas Party with Chichester’s late night shopping thoughout the City until 8pm. Come and say hi, shop for those tricky god-daughters, nephews, fathers-in-law and we will be offering suitably festive trimmings like mulled wine and pigs in blankets.

Participating artists; Thomas Allen, Jonathan Ashworth, William Black, Pippa Blake, Richard Caldicott, Stephen Chambers RA, Carina Ciscato, Hen Coleman, Eileen Cooper RA OBE, Jo Davies, Frances Desforges, Polly Dutton, Isobel Egan, Tracey Emin RA, Charlotte Evans, Terry Frost RA, Nicola Green, Tom Hammick, John Harmer, Emma Hartley, Roger Hilton, Jeremy Houghton, Lou Johns, Alice Kettle, Liane Lang, Irene Lees, Marion MacPhee, Briony MArshall, Chitra Merchant, Kate Montgomery, Chris Orr RA, John Piper, Ian Potts, Giorgia Siriaco, Olivia Stanton, Dan Stevens, Alannah Wilkins.

Final day of First@108 Finalist Exhibition

First@108 invitation cover

First@108 invitation back

Earlier this summer I was shortlisted for the prestigious First@108 award. This year the award has taken a different form and I have been working hard on my response to the theme Memory as well as the challenges of working on a commission for two hospital spaces for patients with dementia.

As is usual with my practice I have taken an approach grounded in scientific research of the subject. I have found it fascinating getting up to speed with the latest neuroscience and neuroanatomy of memory. But have also been really stretching my brain trying to understand the different theories of how the science relates to our embodied experience, with theories of mental models of consciousness and bordering into philosophical realms… As well as these almost existential questions, I also been getting to grips with designing for people whose visual perceptions might be deteriorating due to dementia or Alzheimer’s and all the practicalities of public art commissions. It is quite a challenge. You can get a glimpse of my progress on my facebook page or twitter.

Attached above is the invitation to the opening on Wednesday 7th October (details in text form below). This will be a chance to both see my maquettes and read my proposal as well as the other 4 finalists responses. We will also be doing talks later in the month on the 28th October (details below). So I hope to see you at either the opening or the talks.

Warm regards
Briony
