Nottingham-based One Thoresby Street is launching Sunscreen’s collection with 40 online works by 40 artists exhibiting outside the internet for the first time on August 27.
Sunscreenis an online project conceived by artist and One Thoresby Street co-founderCandice Jacobs. For the launch, the project joins forces with the artist-led complex of galleries, project spaces and artist studios, as well as its partner, the East Mindlands collective EM15.
The art world would mostly be preoccupied with the 56th Venice Biennale in the week beginning May 4. Highlights at the prestigious Italian art fair including Burger King Venezia, Pizza Pavilion, The Internet Saga and SUNSCREEN online initiative listed in our short summary here of some things to look out for.
There are still things happening in other parts of the world, including an national election in the UK, along with parties and gatherings to celebrate/commiserate. There are new exhibitions at Arebyte Gallery, Millington|Marriot and Rod Barton, as well as the third in a series of events supporting the Multiverse Spring Residency at Wysing Arts Centre and Morgan Quaintance in conversation with Gery Georgieva around her Solo Romantika exhibition.
There’s not much in terms of information on what to expect but we do like the artists featured and there’s this little blurb caught up in its own masculinity to draw from (below), which would explain the percievably (but one should never assume) all-male line-up:
A man should know what he wants from the start.
Decisiveness is an important characteristic that can take you far in life. Be it in the area of work, money or just going on a date, your decisiveness shows confidence and your ability to take charge of situations. Be firm and fluent.
A real man states what he wants with authority. Relax.
A real man doesn’t throw his weight around. Be considered yet confident.”
