Reading Room: Thursday
12.30pm - Arteviste and Art Night on Emerging Art
Flora Alexandra Ogilvy, founder of digital arts platform Arteviste, will be in conversation with Zarina Rossheart, founder of contemporary arts festival Art Night. Both platforms have a focus on the emerging art market as well as supporting young artists, galleries and curators in London. They’ll be sharing their highlights of Frieze London as well as discussing the ways in which their platforms contribute to building a sense of community across the contemporary art world.
2pm - Mousse: Book Launch of The Artist as Curator
Join editor Elena Filipovic and Hans Ulrich Obrist for a book launch of The Artist as Curator: An Anthology by Mousse Publishing. This anthology of essays first appeared in The Artist as Curator, a series that occupied eleven issues of Mousse. It set out to examine what was then a profoundly influential but still under-studied phenomenon, a history that had yet to be written: the fundamental role artists have played as curators.
3.30pm - Cranford Collection: In conversation with Sophie van Hellermann
Join Cranford Collection's curator Anne Pontégnie and collector Muriel Salem for a conversation with artist Sophie van Hellermann, on her newly commissioned book which features a series of watercolours made in response to the latest installation of works from the collection at Cranford's Glouster Gate residence. The conversation will be followed by a book signing.
5.30pm – Kaleidoscope: In conversation with artist Torbjørn Rødland
In the new issue of Kaleidoscope, in conversation with fellow L.A. resident Alex Israel, the Norwegian artist-photographer Torbjørn Rødland explains how he infuses the ironic critique of the Pictures Generation with spiritual longing and suspended, surreal ambiguity. At Frieze Reading Room, he meets with Kaleidoscope's editor-at-large Francesca Gavin to discuss his current exhibition "The Touch That Made You" at the Serpentine Sackler Gallery.
