A brain of two halves
Work by Cass Fine Art alumna Lady M has been selected for the prestigious National Open Art (NOA) Competition 2014 Exhibition. Her brain- shaped sculpture Sex on the Brain (part of Pornucopia - Memoirs of a 1980's Nymphomaniac) will be exhibited at Somerset House in London and the Minerva Festival Theatre in Chichester alongside submissions from artists across the country.
In a parallel development, another of Lady M's Brains - a huge walk-in sculpture first seen at The Cass Summer Show- has been seized by a local authority and is being watched 24/7 by security guards and CCTV after it transpired that it had been illegally squatted. Read the full story here.
The NOA 14 Exhibition takes place at Somerset House, London Sept 18th - Oct 25th and the Minerva Theatre, Chichester in December.
