Shifting Focus: the increasing interest in photography for young collectors’ in association with Contemporary Key
A panel discussion chaired by Contemporary Key, exploring the shift in how young collectors are looking to purchase photographs, and how photography is an approachable and popular genre. With Henry Little (BREESE LITTLE), artist Tom Lovelace and Brandei Estes (Deputy Director, Sotheby’s Photographs Department).
Creating, commissioning, exhibiting and collecting art in the digital age
A panel discussion looking at an electrifying cluster of controversies: the subversive intentions and emancipatory motivations of many media artists; the needs and concerns of public art collectors and conservators; the opportunities for private collectors and the interests of high art market speculation. The discussion was chaired by Ruth Catlow (Co-director, Furtherfield) with Steve Fletcher (Co-founder, Caroll / Fletcher) and Lindsay Taylor (Curator, Salford University)

Presented as a vocal exchange of the words 'North' and 'South', this work considers differences of habit, dress and culture between the Northerners and Southerners across the globe, and the competitive instincts deriving from this.

In this work, Rendle considers the idea of thinking freely, and explores the point at which imaginative, free thinking is lost as literal interpretation takes over. Using a novel to explore ways in which reading and writing are simultaneously the tools and trappings of knowledge and creativity, she equates the mental space one occupies when reading, with the physical space one seeks out in a desire to think freely. This space becomes the freedom which enables inspiration. The critical question she asks is: how do we free ourselves in reality without losing our freedom in thought?
Maeve Rendle is represented by The International 3, stand P18a, Art Projects.
