Friday Salon: What Makes An Artist An Artist?

We ask how artists define and identify themselves in an environment that often requires flexibility and mobility. Attempting to shed new light on an old question, the talk will also explore the platforms that are available to artists in visual arts practice and the institutions that form part of the landscape.

ICA The Mall, London SW1Y 5AH from 2:00 – 4:00pm

The Boom of The Independent Art Magazine

Over the last few years we have undeniably experienced a boom in independently printed magazines. Is the ease of browsing online articles beginning to lose its appeal or are we simply rediscovering our love for printed tangible objects we can call our own? Join us on the 17th October where editors and founders of arts and fashion publications will debate this recent (re)turn to print.

The Fitzrovia Gallery 139 Whitfield Street, , London, W1T 5EN from 4:00 – 6:00pm
