Get under the canvas of London’s modern-art scene with an insider who’s intimately acquainted with world-renowned institutions the Serpentine Gallery and Serpentine Sackler.
Join working artist Edy Ferguson, who brings a wealth of knowledge from her time in the creative trenches to this half-day cultural circuit. Her running commentary on the Serpentine galleries’ great works covers the backgrounds of big names, London’s modern-art market, curatorial choices and more. The wearing of kicky artist berets is optional.
"If you want an insider's look into the art industry and its politics, join Edy's tour. She shares her in depth knowledge of being an artist herself and makes an interesting comparison between the New York City and London art scenes."
"Being able to view art with the added layers and insights an Insider like Edy offers makes a gallery visit so much more rewarding and personal. The chance to discuss works and view them with more depth was rewarding and I got fresh perspectives along the way. Really enjoyable."
With degrees from America’s most prestigious art schools to her name, as well as back-room experience working for top galleries and museums, New York-bred Edy has been immersed in the art world for 25 years and counting. From art-directing music videos, she moved to the contemporary art world: first in New York, then Vienna and Athens, before basing herself in London. A working artist, Edy exhibits her own work internationally, (she’s shown at MOMA and the Royal Academy) and has written extensively for arts publications. Still fully engaged with creative greats, she loves to share her knowledge and passion with the art-curious. On this tour, you’ll keep your finger on the pulse of the contemporary art world, learning how it moves and works, and exploring how artistic content interacts with current market trends.
