Serpentine Gallery Pavilions

by: Philip Jodidio

Ten years of temporary pavilions by top architects

Since 2000, the Serpentine Gallery in London’s Kensington Gardens has called on some of the world’s top architects to design summer pavilions – temporary structures that are erected next to the Gallery itself for a three-month period. The Serpentine, which was built in 1934 as a tea pavilion, opened in 1970 as a showplace for exhibitions of modern and contemporary artists ranging from Matthew Barney to Dan Flavin, Ellsworth Kelley, Louise Bourgeois or Rachel Whiteread.

by: Niklas Maak
The Serpentine Gallery Pavilion 2013 is designed by award-winning Japanese architect Sou Fujimoto (born 1971)--the thirteenth and, at 41, youngest architect to accept the invitation to design a temporary structure for the Serpentine Gallery. The Serpentine’s past pavilions have included designs by Herzog & de Meuron and Ai Weiwei (2012), Frank Gehry (2008), the late Oscar Niemeyer (2003) and Zaha Hadid (2000). Inspired by organic structures such as forests, nests and caves, Fujimoto’s buildings inhabit a space between nature and artificiality.

Bridget Riley: Paintings From the 1960s and 70s

by: Robert Kudielka, Lisa G. Corrin, Bridget Riley, Frances Spalding
Bridget Riley is one of the outstanding figures of modern painting. She has pursued a course of rigorous abstraction for some 40 years, from her celebrated black and white Op Art works in the 1960s to the complex colour paintings of the 1990s. On the occasion of a major exhibition of her work in 1992 at London's Hayward Gallery, BBC Radio broadcast a series of five dialogues, each one between Riley and and a well-known figure from the art world. These encounters, edited by an art historian, are contained in this book, With Neil MacGregor, Riley discusses the art of the past in relation to the art of the present; with Sir Ernest Gombrich the perception of colour in painting; with the artist Michael Craig-Martin, the theory and practice of abstraction; and with the critics Bryan Robertson and Andrew Graham-Dixon, she talks about events and travels that have influenced her as an artist.
