Ian Davenport Wide Acres of Time

Ian Davenport Interview
Giardini Colourfall Swatch Faces 2017

“Sometimes a project that pushes you – and different questions are asked of you scale-wise, what the objects is going to be and how it is going to be used – that’s a good discipline to get into. It encourages you to think a bit more laterally.”

James Lee Byars The Golden Tower by Richard Ivey

James Lee Byars The Golden Tower
Venice Biennale 2017

James Lee Byars’s grandest work The Golden Tower has arrived in Venice, and it is safe to say it’s making quite the statement so far. Located right next to the Palazzo Cini, the artwork attracts Biennale 2017 visitors and city wanderers alike. Byars first fantasised about making the luxurious looking piece (which is more than 65 feet tall) back in 1976 and showed it in numerous iterations, yet never before has it been displayed outside in full scale.
