Focus: Six exhibitions to see in Venice during the biennale
From 13 May to 26 November, a dense programme has been scheduled at Venice for the 57th Biennale. From Xavier Veilha’s “Merzbau musical” to Mark Bradford’s social project, we take a little look at the openings not to miss.
Interview: Xavier Veilhan: Studio Venezia, an immersive experience
The artist lives and works in Paris but it is in Venice that he welcomes us today. At the heart of the French Pavilion, where he is representing his country at the 2017 Biennale. A Venetian interview…
Event Michael Benson: “Despite uncertainties, Photo London is stronger than at its outset”
As the third edition of Photo London prepares to open, Art Media Agency has interviewed its cofounder and co-director to discuss what’s special about this young fair… and the Brexit’s impact on the event’s future. An encounter.
Discussion: The wheel of fortune
Elegant and persuasive, she embodies the discreet charm of private banking as the head of one bank’s art department. An hour with Mathilde Courteault of Neuflize OBC.

BA (Hons) Design for Branded Spaces is a new course at LCC that explores the relationship between people, spaces and design. Technological advances have led to a change in the way designers think about and use space, with graduates needing to understand the relationship between physical and digital environments.
There are so many examples of imaginative and innovative installations in and around London so we caught up with Valerie Mace, Course Leader for BA (Hons) Design for Branded Spaces, to talk about her favourite examples of recent projects and installations from the capital and beyond. Valerie’s work is situated within spatial, cultural and urban environments where she investigates synergies between spaces and people via sensory design.
The new LCC will be a Design for Branded Spaces.
The plans, which include an integrated site for UAL’s London College of Communication (LCC) at its centre, will be on display from Thursday 26 – Saturday 28 May 2016, in the Elephant and Castle Shopping Centre, Upper mall. The proposals also include a 1,000 seat multi-screen cinema and a previously unannounced grass-roots music venue for an audience of 500.
The new site for LCC, at the centre of the masterplan, would aim to build capacity around the digital technology industries, including design and gaming, and allow the expansion of TV and film into new creative hub for the area.
Nigel Carrington, Vice-Chancellor of UAL, commented: “As a world Top Five creative university and the leading supplier of talent to the UK’s creative industries, UAL has been at the heart of Elephant & Castle for over 50 years. We are committed to these exciting proposals, which will make the area South London’s most important business district for the next 50 years.”
The proposed masterplan by architecture and urban planning practice Allies and Morrison, aims to deliver a ’must-visit’ town centre destination, with an impressive combination of national and independent London based shops, bars, cafes and restaurants, interspersed between 10,000 sq m of accessible public space and benefitting from improved access, with wider walkways and a new entrance and ticket-hall for the Northern Line.
