Marianne Faithfull’s Innocence and Experience
Sixties icon Marianne Faithfull is co-curating an exhibition with Tate Liverpool, Innocence and Experience, which takes inspiration from the singer-songwriter’s life in the public eye. Featuring work by William Blake, Lucian Freud and Richard Hamilton, the exhibition also explores ideas of dark eroticism found in her music.
Innocence and Experience will run from 21 April – 2 September at Tate Liverpool, Albert Dock, Liverpool, L3
Thomas Demand – The Dailies
This weekend sees the opening of Berlin-based artist Thomas Demand’s exhibition The Dailies at London’s Spruth Magers gallery. Demand’s photographs depict re-enactments of familiar places that often have social and political connotations. For The Dailies, Demand took camera-phone pictures of peculiar arrangements of objects he stumbled on, which were then recreated using paper and card, and re-photographed.
The Dailies runs from 14 April – 19 May at Spruth Magers, 7A Grafton Street, London, W1S
Animate the Animals
If you choose to ignore the dictum about not working with animals – and are a dab hand at animation – the Natural Selection Animation Competition could be right up your street. To mark the opening of artist Dave White’s forthcoming Natural Selection exhibition at The Hospital Club Gallery, TalentHouse and Artrepublic have launched a competition for animators to work with White to bring the animals to life. Best get cracking though – the deadline is 24 April
