The Andrew Project Book Launch – LONDON
9 July 2013, The Zabludowicz Collection, London
The Zabludowicz Collection is pleased to host The Andrew Project book launch, by artist Shaan Syed with an in-conversation between Stuart Cumberland (painter) and Darian Leader (psychoanalyst) exploring ideas and experiences of ‘absence’. The Andrew Project involved the artist pasting over 1000 hand drawn posters of a man, accompanied by the name ‘Andrew’, in Toronto, Berlin and London between 2010 and 2013. The publication documents the evolving surfaces of these posters, especially those where the image has been obscured through graffiti or worn away.
Our current exhibition Painting from the Zabludowicz Collection Part II will be open for viewing during the event.
The event is FREE but booking is recommended. Book here.

To launch The Responsive Subject, a publication produced in relation to the homonymus exhibition that took place at MuZee (Ostend, BE) and that presented Belgium artist Guy Mees (1935 – 2003) in relation to works by Gyan Panchal, Ian Kiaer and João Gusmão & Pedro Paiva, FormContent organises an afternoon of performances and readings with the contributors of the book (Andrea Büttner, Michael Dean, Beatrice Gibson & Will Holder, Andrew Renton, Nick Thurston, Nanni Balestrini, Ruth Höflich, Bridget Penney, Tom Benson, Simone Menegoi, Philomene Pirecki and Shaan Syed).
