IBIZA: MOMENTS IN LOVE AT THE ICA
The ICA celebrates 80’s Ibiza, before it became the Ibiza we know today. We talk to curator David Owen.
EMERGING: Tom Beard
Tom Beard’s shot everyone from Florence Welch to Hercules & Love Affair, but his own personal photography’s a much more downbeat, street-wise affair: mice in their death throes, little paws clutching at air; boys on a council estate staring suspiciously at the outsider in their midst. Wonderland talks to Twickenham boy made good.
CHLOE ATTITUDES: Curator Judith Clark talks through the Chloé exhibition
Not every brand gets to celebrate its diamond jubilee with an retrospective in the hallowed corridors of the Palais de Tokyo, Paris. But then again, Chloé – spiritual home of the French ingénue – isn’t most brands.
EMERGING: Kim Jakobsen To
Norwegian-turned-Londoner Kim Jakobsen To has shot for everyone from Acne to Canon (and Wonderland, of course), but it's his unpretentious, intimate and entirely lovely portraits that really caught our eye. We talk to him about Birdland, his exhibition at Rove Gallery.
EMERGING: Antonio Marguet
best way to fix your credit Surreal, plastic and really rather fantastic: that’s Antonio Marguet‘s photography to a tee. Ahead of his solo show at Hirst-owned gallery Other Criteria, we talk to the Saatchi Gallery New Sensations shortlist-er about his hyper-glossy art.
ERIK HART: Factory SS13
For one night only from 7pm, concept gallery PRIMITIVE London will be transformed by Erik Hart’s site specific installation.

IF YOU LEAVE: Black × Motto, Berlin
A part of an ongoing pop-up exhibition at Motto’s Berlin store, If You Leave – artist and curator Laurence Von Thomas’s 2009-present digital and print series which invites contributions from shoegazing and boundary-pushing photographers the globe over – presented its second bound volume “Black” on Friday. He spoke Wonderland about it.
XAVIERA SIMMONS- DJ, artist, serial jet-setter
New Yorker Xaviera Simmons is an artist of many mediums. Inspired by the Big Apple as much as the rustic landscapes of the US, the sun-kissed vibes of Jamaica and life as a superstar DJ, Simmons’ multifarious installations marry shocking, striking illustration with specially-commissioned music, photography, sculpture, and performances. The elusive auteur spoke to Wonderland […]
GILLIAN WEARING – The Crisis Commission
The Crisis Commission at London’s Somerset House is one of the world’s biggest returning art fixtures – this year’s participants include Tracey Emin, Antony Gormley, Yinka Shonibare, Jonathan Yeo, Gillian Wearing and Bob and Roberta Smith.

Wonderland spoke to London’s The Brick Lane Gallery, whose day-glo coloured and richly multidisplinary new exhibition “Layers” opened last night.
Pia Myrvold – FLOW
New York’s non-profit NO. Gallery will from tonight house a tunnel structure comprised of 77 LED screens and other abstract multimedia compositions for Pia Myrvold’s dazzling and immersive exhibition, FLOW. Exploring 3D media in many of its luminous forms, FLOW offers an unforgiving, retina-burning interdisciplinary experience. Myrvold took Wonderland through her complex new project.
EMERGING… Nicolas Deshayes
Hoxton’s Galleries Goldstein will be hosting a one-off exhibition called Hotel Palenque from 6.30pm, whereby invitee Nicolas Deshayes will exhibit the newest of his typically culture-critical installments – his past works have, in various manifestations, laid bare capitalist society’s messy excesses. The France-born artist and exhibition curator Elise Lammer offer Wonderland a taste of what […]
Altered States: LES TELEVISIONS
After meeting at Brighton University, artists Samuel Levack and Jennifer Lewandowski moved to London to set up The French Riviera, a gallery-cum-workspace on Bethnal Green Road. Their latest exhibition, Les Télévisions – which opens tomorrow – exhibits the work of a dozen or so individuals, on ageing, found analogue televisions in the gallery’s window space. […]
