It was a late spring morning when we met Lubaina Himid in Covent Garden, feeling a sense of renewed hope after another lockdown was lifted. Over coffee and an enthusiastic chat about her next flagship show at Tate Modern, the Turner Award winner held up a piece of paper filled with ideas for this year’s show. Bazaar art, all under the heading: “Collaboration”.
“I want to explode the myth of the lone genius,” she said, then explaining her own art practice with her longtime partner, Magda Stawarska-Beavan, and how much she admired the way women come together. to create a work.
Thus, this year’s issue is dedicated to the fortuitous creativity that results from a meeting of minds. We explore everything from Tacita Dean’s commission for the Royal Ballet and Chanel sponsorship at the National Portrait Gallery, to Maria Varnava’s relationship with her roster of artists in her gallery Tiwani Contemporary and the Hospital Rooms charity which work to rehabilitate patients with art. Marina Abramovic talks about her partnership with Willem Dafoe; artist Celia Paul, podcaster Katy Hessel and actor and collector Russell Tovey share their favorite pieces from female artists; and we explain why Rachel Jones is the name to know now.
Inevitably, we reflected on our own process of collaborating with our team and the artists and creators, who broadened our horizons with their unique wisdom and vision.
