LONDON.- The Zabludowicz Collection announced the fourth exhibition in the 2013 Invites programme. Launched in 2012, Invites is a unique opportunity for artists without commercial gallery representation to produce a solo show in a dedicated project space at Zabludowicz Collection, London. Artists have been selected as a result of extensive studio visits and all shows will run for six weeks.

Ellen Mara De Wachter, Curator, Zabludowicz Collection says: ‘The Invites offers emerging artists a unique and highly visible presence at an important stage in their career, just as they are beginning to gain recognition for their work. The artists we invite have strong practices, which we hope will grow from the opportunity to make new work and to gain exposure to public and critical attention. Invites is an important part of the Zabludowicz Collection’s activities and commitment to supporting artists.’

The Zabludowicz Collection believes the time during which an artist is not represented by a commercial gallery is significant for his or her practice, as it is a period when the artist can create without market pressures. Each exhibition of the Invites series results from an open-ended invitation to exhibit at the Zabludowicz Collection and is accompanied by curatorial support and access to material resources provided by the Collection. Zabludowicz Collection Invites continues the Collection’s ethos of supporting emerging artists at key moments in their careers, beyond collecting. It aims to actively encourage development of artists’ practice by acquiring, commissioning and exhibiting in each of its three locations in London, New York and Sarvisalo, Finland.

Each instalment of Zabludowicz Collection Invites is launched on the first Thursday of its run, with a special evening viewing. Each show features a downloadable interview on zabludowiczcollection.com and a public Artist Presentation, in the form of a performance, talk or other event.

The Invites series is curated by Ellen Mara De Wachter, Curator, Zabludowicz Collection, London.

Lucy Tomlins (born Chertsey, UK). Tomlins is a sculptor who works with a range of traditional materials including marble and stone, as well as contemporary materials including plasticine, resin and aluminium. By combining noble materials with synthetic ones, Tomlins creates a tension between the physical qualities and the subject of her works. A central aspect and theme of Tomlins’s work is contemporary culture’s relationship with food and its visual form and representation. Appropriating the highly processed convenience aesthetic of fast food restaurants, vending machines and supermarkets, much of Tomlins’s work relates to consumer urges and the manipulations employed by the food industry. She will have a solo exhibition at Worcester Cathedral in 2013 (date tbc).
