November 4 | Sprüth Magers to reopen London space
German Modern and contemporary art dealers Monika Sprüth and Philomene Magers are reopening their former Grafton Street Home in the heart of London’s Mayfair.
Last April, as their lease was coming to end, the dealers held their last show at the premises. They had been set to move into a nearby Georgian townhouse at 29 Sackville Street, but were offered the lease for the entire building on Grafton Street, allowing them to remain in their former space. The expanded and renovated gallery will open with an exhibition of new works by the former YBA Gary Hume. The Art Newspaper has more details.
Edgar Sarin has been named the winner of the third Bourse Révélations Emerige, an annual prize awarded to an emerging French artist under 35. The artist, who was born in 1989 and lives between Paris and New York, impressed the jury with his shape-shifting work. Sarin employs a broad range of media including painting, sculpture, drawing, photography, installation and “Entités de spéculation.” The work of Sarin and the other finalists is on display at the Villa Emerige in an exhibition curated by Gaël Charbeau until November 20. The €15,000 cash prize will allow Sarin to put on his first solo exhibition at the Michel Rein gallery to work in a studio for one year at the Cité Internationale des Arts in Montmartre. More details on the official website of the La Bourse Révélations Emerige.
