B is for..

B is for Basel.
Here is my selection of people to discover for Artsy and four more tech interested artists for Postmatter.
I'll be doing a run down of the best bits for Dazed this week. Particularly intersted in checking out the 14 Rooms Hans Ulrich Obrist and Klaus Biesenbach show (another B), including Ed Atkins above.

B is also for Bernadette Corporation.
My feature on the collective, originally written to coincide with their shows at the ICA and Artists Space, is now online at Dazed Digital. A big monograph is published by Artists this year.

Rave Day

To coincide with the opening of E-Vapor-8 at Site Sheffield (which runs until August 16), I helped curated Rave Day online for Dazed Digital.

It included the text of the feature I wrote on the influence of rave on artists, a new dA-Zed of the legacy of rave, a curated selection of artist films by Cory Arcangel and Frankie Martin, Rhys Coren, Jim Woodall, Christian J Petersen and Levack and Lewandowski, and an old school rave mix by Ben Bracket. 

The show has also had some nice mentions including an interview with exhibition artist Alexandra Gorcynski extended profile on Culture24 and a preview in the Guardian Guide (pictured below!)
