The Opinion Makers is organised by Iavor Lubomirov and Bella Easton – artists, curators and directors of the ALISN network and the LUBOMIROV-EASTON Project Space. The first Opinion Makers exhibition took place at Enclave Gallery in 2013. The second in this evolving series, presents at Londonewcastle Project Space the work of international, as well as UK artists, curators and critics, to give a glimpse of a rising global trend of artists devolving new organisational, curatorial and critical roles upon themselves.
Sue Cohen is an artist, curator and director of OCCUPY MY TIME. Her practice as an artist explores ‘othering’ within the political, economic, social and psychological connotations and implications, through a fictitious character called ‘Gilda’ and her narrative. Cohen has curated the the work of Shona Davies and David Monaghan on a number of occasions and has chosen them for connections in their practices such as social histories, engagement, narrative, and the manifestation of a sombre and sometimes dismal existence, which has an ability to show a glimpse of humour.
