I am delighted to announce this month's artists' pages, the first of two collaborative artworks between Phil Harris and Nick Ferguson, where each takes a turn providing an art work for the other to respond to. Here Phil Harris has supplied the first work, look out for part two later this summer.
In this issue we have an interview with emerging live artist Phoebe Davies, reviews of the Chapman Brothers at White Cube and Karin Ruggaber at Greengrassi. And, as it is now officially the summer holidays, despite the bad weather, we have postcards from India, the East Midlands, St Ives and Folkestone and Bexhill.
Around London there are several shows opening this month. Sound artist Aura Satz is concurrently showing a film about mechanical music at Artprojx in Knightsbridge and a newly commissioned sound installation at Beaconsfield in Vauxhall. At The approach E2 'Feeling gave way to structure' brings together Alexander Heim, Florian Roithmayr and Giles Round, three London-based artists who adapt the vernacular structures of the city into visual languages of their own. While at Pippy Houldsworth's new space in West London, a group show 'On Your Marks' examines the activity of drawing and features Anna Barham, Tobias Collier, Lynton Talbot and Gary Woodley.
At South London Gallery 'Games and Theory', curated by Kit Hammonds, brings together an exciting group of international artists, including Gustavo Artigas and Nils Norman, whose diverse practices share interests in play, sports and gaming. While south of the river, don't miss the Goldsmiths MFA Art Practice exhibition, this year's graduating group includes artist-to-watch Charlie Tweed. Next door, the Goldmsiths MFA Curators present a publication 'A Fine Red Line (A Curatorial Miscellany)' and a series of talks.
