We LOVE Movember. Last year our most handsome pink sheep Julian grew a moustache for the occassion (if you missed our Facebook profile photo updates where were you?!); this year we’re keeping it more low-key. We realised Latitude 2012 artists were way ahead of the game on the mo front and have put a selection together below… Question is, can you name the famous faces behind them?
No sob stories or Simon Cowell. THIS is our kind of talent competition.
The Latitude Contemporary Art Award, hosted within the festival’s Iris Gallery, showcases five new artist commissions created especially for the unique space. This year Lancashire-based Linder Sterling won with piece ‘Stringed Figure (Octobass for the 21st Century) (Version I) 2012’.
Linder will discuss surrealism, eroticism and feminism at London’s Whitechapel Gallery this weekend. Alice Anderson, commissioned last year, will also be at the gallery this weekend performing live as part of installation ‘Library’.
See exciting new projects from last year’s winner Andy Harper at the James Freeman Gallery too!
