A special relationship? Modern British art and the USA

How were modern British artists inspired by America and its artists? And how far have American artistic traditions been informed by figures or ideas from the UK? At a time of increasing political isolationism on both sides of the Atlantic, this panel will explore the history of such creative exchanges as well as their continuing relevance today.

Chaired by Fatema Ahmed, Deputy Editor, Apollo magazine

Photographing the times - identity, migration and displacement

How are galleries, artists and spaces curating conversations on identity and migration? Photographer and curator, Sunil Shah, chairs a panel discussion considering the impact of photography in reflecting identity politics. The group will also explore how photography can represent the experience of migration – aesthetically and symbolically, as well as embodying aspects of memory, loss, displacement and exile. Panel members include Katy Barron, Senior Director, Michael Hoppen Gallery, Ms. Sofia Sokolov, art historian, curator and director of Galerie Voss; plus artists Larry Achiampong and Qiana Mestrich (part of Photo50 2018).

The Redfern Gallery presents: Eileen Agar and the British Surrealists

The phenomenal output of works by British Surrealist artists – unduly unacknowledged so far – deserves a second look. Michel Remy, Professor Emeritus at the University of Nice, will look into its main representatives; providing a special focus on Eileen Agar’s work with the attempt to give it the credit it deserves at long last. Eileen Forrester Agar (1 December 1899 – 17 November 1991) was a British painter and photographer associated with the Surrealist movement.

Curating gender and gender identity in art

How is gender currently being represented by visual art? How has the changing relationship between artists, curator and galleries allowed exhibitions to explore pertinent topics on gender? What is the relevancy of further delving into gender identity? What is the future of exploring gender in art? New York Times journalist Farah Nayeri chairs this pertinent exploration, joined by artists Rachel Ara (Anise Gallery), Mehtap Baydu (Galeri Nev) with gallerist and curator Jessica Carlisle, and London Art Fair 2018 ‘Dialogues’ curator Misal Adnan Yildiz.
