Hosted by Christie's Education, this year's events programme is designed for interaction and discussion, and offers the opportunity to try your hand and make your own print. With events running throughout the weekend, there is something for everyone at Multiplied 2012.
This year's programme of events includes:
Marc Quinn is one of the leading artists of the YBA generation, whose celebrated and controversial works include Self, a cast of his head in his own blood, and Alison Lapper, a commission for the fourth plinth in Trafalgar Square, a giant inflatable version of which was the centre piece for the opening ceremony of the Paralympics. Editions have always been a significant part of Marc's practice, and in addition to his appearance at NTMY Marc will be also be exhibiting new work at the fair.
Charles Avery's art describes the topography, history and culture of an imaginary island, occupied by fantastical creatures with strange rituals and obsessive habits. Imbued with a formal beauty and sense of enquiry, Avery's practice invites the viewer to recreate the Island in their own mind, and to use it as a place to explore philosophical conundrums and paradoxes. Charles will be exhibiting a series of lithographs at Multiplied with Paupers Press.
Pixie Geldof and her band Violet have been described by the Guardian as being similar to 'the spectral, smacked-out country of Cowboy Junkies and Mazzy Star', and drawing inspiration from grunge band Hole.
ArtWednesday is an arts and culture website whose vision is to get Londoners to try, explore and discover creative new things by providing the content, products and experiences they deserve to know about.
