NEW FUTURES x CSM
The Other Art Fair are presenting New Futures, an initiative developed to champion the works of up-and-coming and underrepresented artists. Come down to the fair to catch the work of two Central Saint Martins graduates at this summer’s edition.
Giacomo Layet – MA Fine Art
Giacomo focuses on Health and Safety aesthetics and materials, experimenting with both organic and industrial materials to create mixed-media installations, photographs and paintings. Giacomo’s works mix identifiable elements with invented ones, expressing a humoristic interplay between an imaginative projection and actuality.
Marion Mandeng – MA Contemporary Photography; Practices and Philosophies
Marion’s work focuses on human behaviour and highlights what she considers persistent discrimination in society. Using sexual objects as proxies for gender conflict, her work explores the fundamental cause of inequality and brings greater urgency to the debate about discrimination. Her practice reflects her personal experience as a woman and mother of three daughters.
SOHO Radio will be providing the soundtrack to the Fair. SOHO Radio is an influential voice for music and culture and will be at the fair for the Private view and Friday Late sessions.
