On 9 June, London will see the arrival of Nahmad Projects
, an exciting new contemporary art space opening at 2 Cork Street, W1.
An initiative of London-based gallerist Joseph Nahmad, in collaboration with former Sotheby's Tommaso Calabro, Nahmad Projects will bring a radical edge to Mayfair's contemporary art scene. Through an innovative program of multidisciplinary exhibitions, from performances to site-specific art installations, the new space aims to contribute to contemporary culture by investigating and challenging the boundaries of contemporary art practice. Emerging and established artists from around the world, together with leading international curators will be invited to reflect upon the most pressing issues surrounding contemporary art today.
For its inaugural show this summer, Nahmad Projects is pleased to announce its collaboration with renowned curator Francesco Bonami. I am NOT tino sehgal, running from 10 June to 20 July, will be the gallery's first experimental project and the first in a series to bring new energy to Mayfair's artistic landscape.
Young artists from around the world will be invited to submit an original script inspired by Tino Sehgal's practice via a 'Call for Artists' to be launched today (4 April). The worldwide 'Call for Artists' will be open to individuals aged 20-35, including students from art schools. Thirty scripts will be selected by Bonami and Nahmad Projects, following specific selection criteria and requirements set out in the 'Call for Artists', and will form the seed of a set of thirty unique performances. I am NOT tino sehgal will be in perpetual motion, with one performance showcased every day over 30 days.
