Migrate Art announces ‘Scorched Earth’

Migrate Art presents ‘Scorched Earth’ a charity auction and exhibition of new works by leading artists, organised in direct response to the widespread deliberate destruction of crop fields in Iraq. The participating artists have created new works using paint pigmented with ash collected by Migrate Art from land scorched by these fires.

The Tunisian/French artist eL Seed’s installation Perception, was painted across 50 buildings in Cairo without the consent of the Government who have stopped street artists making work, and censure artists across many media. The installation was in an area called Manshiyat Nasr, where Coptic Christians live. They are called Zabaleen (the garbage people) but do not use this term themselves. They collect the city’s rubbish and recycle it, yet are discriminated against because of their work, and they are seen as dirty. The text eL Seed used is from Saint Athanasius of Alexandria, a 3 rd century Coptic Bishop and states: ‘?? ???? ??? ?? ???? ??? ?????? ??? ???? ?? ???? ?????’ (Anyone who wants to see the sunlight clearly needs to wipe his eye first). The anamorphic image took the artist and a team of workers over three weeks in install, and it could clearly be seen from the nearby Moqattam Mountain.

The Word is Art.

The Word is Art is a fascinating global overview of how contemporary artists incorporate text and language into work that speaks to some of the most pressing issues of the 21st century

REVIEW: Zabludowicz Collection – 20 years

There was a party atmosphere last night at the Zabludowicz Collection, celebrating their 20 years. The well healed mixed happily with young artists who were mostly milling around the bar and the food van. Inside we were treated to some highlights from the collection, we had important pieces by Sarah Lucas, Tracey Emin, Damian Hirst, Maria Lassnig, Sigmar Polke, Martin Creed and Rachel Whiteread.
