Seaside town to be turned into art school for Folkestone Triennial
Bob and Roberta Smith is offering the residents of Folkestone, a UK seaside town on the Kent coast, an art school education as part of the next Folkestone Triennial, which opens this autumn (2 September – 5 November). The fourth edition will include site-specific, public art commissions by 20 international artists including Lubaina Himid, Michael Craig-Martin, Amalia Pica, David Shrigley and Antony Gormley.
Lewis Biggs, the curator of the Folkestone Triennial, has called the exhibition Double Edge, referring to the two geographical axes of the town: the seashore and the Pent Stream, an ancient watercourse flowing from the Northern Downs into the sea.
The title also reflects current economic and political concerns. “It is about anxiety, the edge of the world, the edge of the future and the unknown,” he says. “Folkestone voted by a large majority to leave the European Union [in last June’s referendum]. Coming to terms with the double-edged nature of that vote is interesting.”

TBurnsArts Weekly | March On, Strong Women
A week on from Trump’s inauguration and the global triumph of The Women’s March – which saw as many as 4,600,000 take to the streets worldwide – discussions continue to spark.
In the art world, can we hope for some positive shifts? With Maria Balshaw taking the helm of the Tate in June, making her the first female director of arguably the most heavyweight art institution in the country, can we see this as the start of things to come?

New Year’s resolutions…it’s all too easy to give in to that piece of chocolate / glass of wine / wheel of brie. So when a friend recently shifted the perspective we were delighted – and excited – at the prospect of a fuller, more rewarding 2017.
“Don’t try to give something up, or even do something less. Resolve to do something more.”
Read more, cook more, see more films, visit exhibitions more often, travel to new places, learn new skills…whatever it is, make it your personal development and be enriched.
