"The art audience loves a miserable loser who, after death, succeeds in a big way." Robert Hughes, 2004.
Proving Hughes' point, London's upcoming gallery exhibitions feature Modligliani (killed by TB at the age of 35), Basquiat (heroin overdose, age 27). We'll also be exploring the lives and art of Post-Impressionists Vincent van Gogh and Paul Cézanne both of whom experienced posthumous fame. We'll be checking out the art fairs, museums, and commercial galleries to uncover what's new and cutting edge in today's London. Whether you are new to the art world or a knowledgeable art lover, you are welcome at the London Art Salon's invigorating social events.
In time for Frieze London, artist Aliki Braine takes on controversial contemporary works of art and questions if artists'ideas have really changed much across the centuries.
