BEN RIVERS awarded Artangel Open commission

We're delighted to announce that Ben Rivers has been awarded one of the first two Artangel Open commissions alongside writer and artist Katrina Palmer. Open is a £1 million initiative by Artangel and BBC Radio 4 for new site-specific commissions across the UK. It's a call for artists working in any media to share proposals for ground-breaking projects that will transform the UK's cultural landscape.

Previous Artangel Open calls have led to some of the most iconic projects of the past decade – Michael Landy’s Break Down, the very public destruction in a department store on Oxford Street of absolutely everything the artist owned; Jeremy Deller's The Battle of Orgreave in South Yorkshire, the re-enactment of a dark day in the conflict between police and colliery workers during the 1984 Miners' Strike; Roger Hiorns's Seizure, the brilliant blue crystal council flat in South London; and Clio Barnard's award-winning film The Arbor shot on the Buttershaw Estate in Bradford.

JOSH BLACKWELL and RENEE SO at The Glasgow School of Art

13 July - 29 September 

This group exhibition looks at the ideas contemporary practice has around adornment, exploring cultural, social and material aspects. It looks at the status that detail and embellishment has now in contemporary practice.
