Monday Muse at The Wick

Last week saw the exciting announcement that Fatoş Üstek will take over from Clare Lilley as the 2023 curator of Frieze Sculpture in Regent’s Park. Part of the trinity celebrating London’s creativity, together with Frieze London and Frieze Masters, the annual public sculpture exhibition will take place from 20 September to 29 October 2023.

It was a busy week for Üstek, who is also the Chair of Bloomberg New Contemporaries – the latest edition of their annual exhibition returned to the South London Gallery for the fifth consecutive year last Thursday. From an open call submission of over 1,500 entries, 47 of the UK’s most exciting emerging artists were selected. This week’s Monday Muse Fatoş Üstek chaired the two-stage process.

A curator, writer and leading voice in contemporary art, Üstek has been commissioning in the public realm for over two decades and has worked on a number of large-scale biennials and festivals. She previously ran the Liverpool Biennial and The Roberts Institute of Art in the UK, was a judge for the Turner Prize 2020, and has sat on the selection and award committees for the Scotland and Dutch Pavilions at Venice. She is also a contributing editor of Extra Extra Magazine and writes regularly for academic publications and exhibition catalogues. If that wasn’t enough, she is currently working on a new model for art institutions to be published as a book in 2023.
