Celebrate art season in the capital this October with Bazaar Art Week
Each October, luminaries from the worlds of culture and fashion descend on the capital for some of the busiest weeks in the British art calendar. This year,Harper’s Bazaarwill be at the heart of the celebrations with the launch ofBazaar Art Week, a cultural festival running from 1 to 7 October that features an exciting line-up of reader events.
Building on the magazine’s long heritage in art – Andy Warhol, Man Ray and Marc Chagall are among our past contributors, while recent editions have featured the likes of Tracey Emin, Yoko Ono and Gillian Wearing – the week-long event series will bring to life our annual print publication,Bazaar Art, distributed with the November issue. Taking place at multiple locations across London, the events offer an opportunity for readers to meet and interact with some of the pioneering female artists, curators, gallerists and collectors featured in the print issue.
At the V&A, guests are invited to a one-day-only, bespoke exhibition where they can view photographs from the museum’s collection taken by female photographers who have contributed toBazaar. This includes work by Lillian Bassman, Diane Arbus and Genevieve Naylor, as well as images recently donated to the V&A by the Linda McCartney Foundation. Elsewhere, Yana Peel will host a talk at the Serpentine Galleries, themed around the burgeoning connections between art and fashion, that will include a curator’s tour of the venue’s forthcoming exhibition by Atelier EB.
Among the panel discussions taking place throughout the week are a conversation about how to invest in art, with expert advice from the collector Valeria Napoleone and the auction house Dorotheum’s Martina Batovic, and a provocative event titled ‘Where are the women artists?’ led by Kate Bryan, Soho House’s head of global collections, who will be joined by three of the artists she has commissioned for the clubs.
