“Last year, our first-ever summer Frieze Sculpture was a resounding success, with more than five million visitors enjoying exceptional sculpture by artists from around the world. The 2018 edition is just as expansive and diverse, so that the public and collectors alike can experience world-class artwork in the beautiful English Gardens, designed by Markham Nesfield in 1866. My hope is that the exhibition will give pause for thought as well as great pleasure, and that visitors to Regent’s Park will have a snapshot of the fantastic imagination of artists and variety of sculpture being made today.” Read more here: Something Curated, What to Expect From The Return Of Frieze Sculpture This Summer.

On the occasion of the duo show “SMUT” by British artists Jamie Fitzpatrick and Lindsey Mendick at VITRINE Basel, which opens on Tuesday 12 June to coincide with Art Basel 2018, we asked the curator Alys Williams (VITRINE Founding Director and SMUT Curator) and artists to have a conversation to learn more about the exhibition, the artist’s practice and their interest in the Wallace Collection, London, where they have both taken inspiration.

VITRINE is delighted to announce that the Zabludowicz Collection highlighted our next show with Jamie Fitzpatrick and Lindsey Mendick on their website. Read the article here.
“The Wallace Collection is housed in the 18th-century Hertford House in a square north of Oxford Street in London. It is a sumptuous setting for a superb collection with emphases on 18th century French painting, furniture, porcelain and more. Contrast that with Vitrine’s Basel location: an angular, contemporary glazed space tucked under a road bridge next to a train station, tram stop and supermarket. British artists Jamie Fitzpatrick and Lindsey Mendick, both graduates of the Royal College of Art, bring a flavour of the historic London collection to this Basel location with works in sculpture, painting and sound that revisit the exuberance and excess of the French depictions of love and sensual encounters. Embraces and gestures are examined and recreated with keen interest in their standard vocabulary and how this might be altered or emphasised, reviewing gender and class distinctions in contemporary form. “
