I tend to concentrate on stuff happening in Birmingham on CiB but Matthew Price has emailed with news of Birmingham artists getting recognition outside our fair city:
- Moseley’s Tessa Farmer has a work in the current show ‘Wrap your troubles in a dream’ at Lautom Contemporary in Oslo, curated by Power Ekroth. Looks like a great show.
- West Midlands-based artist Sally Payen for has been selected for the Shingle 22 Biennale in Rome – a biennale devoted this edition to the theme of war.
- West Midlands-based artist Janice Dale opened a show last weekend at The Courtyard in Hereford.
- Roger Hiorns has been awarded a major commission by Artangel in London this September which involves transforming “urban housing into large-scale immersive works of art”
I’m not so good at picking up on this stuff but it’s always good to hear about.Â If you spot something then feel free to send it my way.
