Partnership Editions: pop up artist’s studios

We’re great fans of Partnership Editions, whose founder Georgia Spray we interviewed last summer. Shaking up the way we buy contemporary art, her platform offers a kind of online gallery where you can browse and shop from emerging to mid-career artists, receive professional advice and build your art collection. Now there’s a new string to the Partnership Editions bow in the form of an innovative pop-up in the new Islington Square development. Three artist’s will each take over the glass-fronted space for 10 days as satellite art studios. Watch them in action every day from 12-2pm, and at the end of the 10 days residency there’ll be a private view and shoppable exhibition where you can buy the works created in the space (from £250). Here’s what on:

Alexandria Coe Figuring 24 October – 3 November 2019

Known for her line drawings of the female nude, Coe will be the first artist to take up residency at the pop up. Works will go on sale at Islington Square Thursday 31 October, 6.30-8.30pm and will be online from 1 November. Book tickets now to a life drawing class with Coe on Saturday 26 October 11.30am-1pm here.

Rose Electra Harris Moving Rooms 6 – 17 November 2019

Rose Electra Harris’ work celebrates the colour and design of everyday objects. Inspired by her antique dealing father, Rose’s interior spaces are surreal and whimsical, and her latest work is inspired by her time recently living in Mexico City. For her studio series, Rose will transform half of the space into an interiors set which she can draw from life – her artworks will constantly rotate around the space, changing day by day. Private view 14 November 6.30-8.30pm at Islington Square, artworks for sale online from 15 November. Book tickets to a still life class with Harris on Saturday 9 November, 11.30am-1pm here.

Isabella Cotier Another Place 20 November – 1 December 2019

Isabella Cotier is an observer of the people and passing moments around her, which she documents from life in her sketchbooks – you may know her from her weekly artworks for Vogue and her collaboration with Gucci. She will be creating larger than life-size paintings of people from the street of London and surreal paintings of things that she has drawn from her mind. Private view 28 November, 6.30 – 8.30pm at Islington Square, artworks online from 29 November.

In the studio with Partnership Editions 4-22 December 2019

Throughout December you’ll be able to browse a curated selection of the latest Partnership Editions artworks in the flesh at the pop up space, and their team will be on hand to give advice on buying. They are also launching a new concept called Partnership X, a collection of screen prints by their artists starting from just £85 – which we’ll promptly be putting on our Christmas wish-list.
