The London Art Fair saturday evening, masses to see as usual.
Up early sunday morning to get down to south London for the sculpture brunch http://www.sculpture-network.org/en/home/program/new-years-brunch/nyb13.html hosted by the sculptor Jeff Lowe. He has converted an old warehouse into a fabulous gallery, before this it housed artists studios and the front door goes into the space that I used as a studio some years ago. It is quite a transformation from messy studios into a huge, glorious light and airy space. It was fab to catch up with so many artists and some excellent presentations by Lee Tribe, Sam Cornish and Charles Hewlings
Wednesday evening I trundled along to a performance by Lisa Selby www.lisaselby.com at the RBS HQ, http://rbs.org.uk/exhibitions/past It was packed, standing room only and it got even more squashed as those nearer the front moved back away from the tea being spilt all over the floor. I actually found it quite distressing to see women holding a cup of tea aloft for half an hour, seeing the difficulty of keeping still and the ache of holding the cup at all after a while. I didn't see the joke that others saw, I felt sorry for the performers, so the audience had a very mixed reaction.
