The Blake Project are set to hold a festival to kickstart a crowd-funding campaign to buy William Blake's cottage and preserve it as a place of cultural significance.
The campaign to buy Blake’s Cottage, the birthplace of the English 'Jerusalem' was launched at the Houses of Parliament on Monday 7 July and The Blake Society have to raise £520,000 to secure it.
The 'Golgonooza' (Blake's mythical city) festival is planned for 18-20 September, with many musicians, writers, poets and performers lined up for events in Felpham.
Now in it's eleventh year, the Vauxhall Art Car Boot Fair is hitting the road, and Jealous are joining them.
After a fantastic event at London's Brick Lane earlier this year, we are very excited to be joining the likes of Peter Blake, Tracey Emin and Gavin Turk on the Folkestone seafront.

For the first time, an immersive exhibition brings together different art forms that demonstrate the astounding possibilities of digital technologies in creative fields such as music, cinematography, game design, fashion and art. London's Barbican Centre plays host to the work of a new generation of artists, designers, filmmakers and musicians who are pushing the boundaries of their disciplines; plus new commissions by some of the biggest names in the technology and arts industries such as Christopher Nolan, will.i.am and Google. Visitors can interact with digital art installations, experiment with new technologies, visualise music and play indie videogames, all of which create a mind-blowing experience of the advances in digital media from cult computer games of the 1980s to anticipated designs of the not-too-distant future.
3 July - 14 September 2014
When thinking of modern geometric art, the works of European artists such as Kandinsky and Mondrian spring to mind, but in South America in the 1930s a group of young artists were pioneering a new visual language that redefined the rules of art at the time and should not be neglected. Artists across five cities boldly experimented with colour and form, incorporated new materials such as neon and kinetic sculpture into their practice and turned to abstraction as a revolutionary mode of expression. By mimicking industrial processes and exploring the psychology of perception, they created a kind of art that could be made by anybody and understood by everybody.
This summer, The Royal Academy of Art is giving these modern artists the spotlight that they deserve for their forward-thinking work. Radical Geometry demonstrates how South America embraced the modern in the mid-century and played a pivotal role in challenging the traditional perceptions and processes of art.

“The idea is simple: Ghosts Of Gone Birds asks each artist to adopt an extinct bird from a list of over 200 species and breathe life back into it - so we don’t lose any more” explains Ghosts of Gone Birds creator and creative director, Chris Aldhous.
A percentage of the profits from the sale of the original art goes to help frontline conservation projects fighting to save the lives of endangered birds around the world. Ghosts Of Gone Birds has already helped highlight critical endangerment issues like illegal hunting in Malta & use of mist-nets, lime sticks to trap rare birds in Cyprus.
Ghosts Of Gone Birds at The Lookout will show 20 artists including driftwood sculptor Guy Taplin, video artist Katie Goodwin, local artists Sula Rubens, Martin Carter, and returning Ghosts artists Adam Bridgland, Beatrice Forshall and Philip Hardaker.
Ghosts Aldeburgh: Admission free
Exhibition dates: July 29th – Aug 9th 2014 Venue: The Lookout Tower, 31 Crag Path, Aldeburgh, Suffolk. IP15 5BS Opening times: Tues – Fri 10am – 5pm / Sat & Sun 11 – 6pm
Ben Eine LIVE @ Jealous
This week, pioneering street artist Ben Eine will be transforming the outside of Jealous Studio with his iconic graffiti letter-writing.
With a new ground floor space currently being transformed for our upcoming Jealous Gallery East, we thought we might employ one of the most prolific urban artists to spruce the place up with some specially commissioned pieces.
Come and catch the man himself in action, until the 31st July.

Captivated by the endless aesthetic and formal possibilities of the materiality of the human body, Saville makes a highly sensuous and tactile impression of surface and mass in her monumental oil paintings. Subjects are imbued with a sculptural yet elusive dimensionality that verges on the abstract. In recent paintings, she renews her enduring figurative investigations by depicting bodies embracing and intertwined.
Several new works are inspired by the ancient Egyptian rubbish dump at Oxyrhynchus, one of the most important archeological sites ever discovered. Heaps of discarded documents and literature, incredibly preserved in the area’s dry climate, are now invaluable; fragments of ancient Greek texts such as Euclid’s Elements and the poems of Sappho are among the excavated papyri. Saville alludes to this history through a deep layering of paired subjects: faces, torsos, and limbs overlap with shadows and reflections, palimpsests of living bodies and ancestral apparitions. Silhouettes drawn in charcoal through the surfaces of oil paint underscore the motion of the central embracing figures, while evoking the timeless human process of sketching. These intermediate “studies” echo the shifting status of the unearthed papers—once discarded, now treasured.
13th June - 26th July
In a unique work created for the Serpentine, the internationally acclaimed artist Marina Abramović will perform in the Gallery for the duration of her exhibition: 10am to 6pm, 6 days a week. Creating the simplest of environments in the Gallery spaces, Abramović’s only materials will be herself, the audience and a selection of props that she may or may not use. On arrival, visitors will both literally and metaphorically leave their baggage behind in order to enter the exhibition: bags, jackets, electronic equipment, watches and cameras may not accompany them.
The public will become the performing body, participating in the delivery of an unprecedented moment in the history of performance art.
11 Jun 2014 to 25 Aug 2014
The Human Factor surveys how artists over the past 25 years have reinvented figurative sculpture, looking back to earlier movements in art history and drawing on contemporary imagery.
The artists engage in dialogues with modernist, classical and archaic models of art.
Across their work, the figure is a catalyst for exploring concerns from political violence and mortality to sexuality and voyeurism.
The exhibition features works by over 20 leading international artists including Pawel Althamer, Frank Benson, Huma Bhabha, Katharina Fritsch, Ryan Gander, Rachel Harrison, Georg Herold, Thomas Hirschhorn, Jeff Koons, Paul McCarthy, John Miller, Cady Noland, Ugo Rondinone, Yinka Shonibare, Thomas Schütte, Paloma Varga Weisz, Rebecca Warren, Andro Wekua and Cathy Wilkes.

This display of some thirty particularly remarkable and intriguing examples spans more than 500 years and encompasses a variety of printmaking techniques.
The selection includes works by Mantegna, Bruegel, Canaletto, Picasso, Matisse and Freud.
Runs from 19 June - 21 September 2014

Turner prize 2014 shortlist unveiled
The 30th Turner prize will be contested by four artists who are almost impossible to pigeonhole, using techniques that include film, storytelling, installation and screenprinting.
The shortlist, announced on Tuesday at Tate Britain, is made up of Duncan Campbell, Ciara Phillips, James Richards and Tris Vonna-Michell.
All four are in a sense collagists, often using images and films they have physically discovered or found online. They also explore subjects that are more their parents' history than their own.
Penelope Curtis, Tate Britain's director and chair of the judging panel, said: "This year's nominations illustrate the mobility of the contemporary art world, in which works are seen at global biennales and festivals over the course of the year. The four shortlisted artists share a strong international presence and an ability to adapt, re-stage and re-interpret their own and others' works, very often in collaborative social contexts."
The four artists will now use or create work for a Turner prize exhibition at Tate Britain from 30 September with the £25,000 winner named on 1 December.
Whatever you’re doing this weekend, it can probably wait. The Tate Modern calls, with its seminal exhibition of the vibrant and fabled Matisse cut-outs. Displaying 130 powerful and groundbreaking works created with only a pair of scissors, a pile of paper and some glue, the masterpieces of Matisse’s final years are a feast for the eyes and soothing for the soul.
A major influence on a generation of 60s and 70s American painters, the cut-outs have continued to inspire many to this day.
The exhibition will be at the London gallery until 7 September before it travels to New York's Museum of Modern Art in mid-October. It can also be seen by cinema-goers from 3 June with the launch of Matisse Live.
If you are lucky enough to be in Spain, Jealous favourite Adrian Navarro has a new exhibition opening at Galeria Maior on 20th April, entitled Loops. Navarro’s visual exploration celebrates the dichotomy among physical confinement and expansive freedom in painting. The artist’s training as an architect becomes apparent in his approach, showing architecture’s ultimate function: creating habitable spaces. His paintings work as a window to an illusory landscape through a skin that creates the effect of permeability and detachment. Navarro’s struggle between opposites symbolizes the pulsation of life that plays tensely with the role of our body in the artificial world.

Discover the beautiful art of Chiaroscuro woodcuts as the Royal Academy present works from two of the finest collections in the world. Conceived as independent works or based on the designs of the greatest Renaissance artists such as Parmigianino, Raphael and Titian, you will see how this pioneering 16th-century printing technique breathed new life into well-known biblical scenes and legends; from Perseus slaying the Medusa to Aeneas Fleeing Troy, and the Miraculous Draught of Fishes. They have brought together 150 of the rarest and most exquisite examples of this forgotten art form.

Jealous highly recommends the Tates Modern's current retrospective from the founding father of pop art, Richard Hamilton. Aside from iconic pieces ‘Just what is it that makes today's homes so different, so appealing‘ and ‘Swingeing London 67’, the exhibition spans 60 years of work. From oil paintings, sculpture, and polaroids, to collage, x-rays, and large scale installations, the show examines the diversity of Hamilton’s work. In one room a giant Robbie the robot from The Forbidden Plant looms overhead, as visitors stroll over a foam floor, while a jukebox belts out classic hits. Elsewhere is his recreation of a hotel lobby from a postcard. Visually stimulating pieces are underpinned by sharply political references, including Margaret Thatcher, IRA hunger strikers and Tony Blair depicted as a gunslinger.
13 February - 26 May
From 10th March to 18th April 2014, Scream Editions is taking its newly launched online print gallery to the busy streets of Soho with an exciting pop-up just off of London’s iconic Carnaby Street at 20 Foubert's Place.

Jealous Prize Winner 12/13 Maaike Anne Stevens presents Black Sea, an exhibition of new work at the Acme Project Space.
Utilising moving image, text, print and sculptural forms, Maaike creates a friction between time and events, both real and supposed. The port city of Odessa, on the Black Sea acts as a point of enquiry for Maaike who has spent a period of time researching the rich synthesis of historical events and narratives that surround the sea and the city. The resulting work acts as an exploration of the transitional state between personal drives and appropriated behavioural patterns, set within a landscape marked by Facebook posts and age-old rocks.
Acme Project Space - 44 Bonner Road, E2 London.

Marcelle Joseph Projects is thrilled to present and curate PAZAR, British sculptor Jonathan Trayte’s first exhibition in Turkey. This exhibition will feature a seductive array of sculptures, paintings, and images inspired by the marketplace and specifically the sensuous bazaars of Istanbul. In this exciting new exhibition space, enormous concrete casts of pumpkins and marrows are presented amongst sugary aluminium paintings and exotic, meticulously painted bronze fruits mounted on towering cemented plinths. Trayte’s practice is concerned with the mimicry of foodstuffs and inspired by the language of colour used in food display and packaging. The exhibition has been titled PAZAR, the Turkish word for both market and bargain.
Exhibition dates: 21st March - 31st May 2014
Hours: Monday - Friday, 10am - 6pm, Saturday, 11am - 6pm.

Recently picked up by the V&A permanent collection, Chris Agnew is a skilled artist who has a unique approach towards drawing and painting. A Jealous Graduate Prize winner from 2010, Agnew's signature technique of etching on panels stands him out from the crowd. Focusing on the fluctuating processes of constructing and deconstructing political, religious and sociocultural belief systems, Agnew finds inspiration in classical works. His love for historical etchings is evident in his use of complex geometric patterns. His core goal is to “seek and observe rhythms and patterns at work in nature and particular events”.
The Mighty Grip of Fate runs from 10 January to 9 February at ArtEco Gallery Ltd, 533 Old York Road, Wandsworth, London SW18 1TG.

Rub shoulders with Klu Klux Klanners in stripy socks and open-toed sandals as you admire taxidermied woodland animals in ‘compromising’ situations, washed down with a good dose of dismembered body parts and a film sequence of the terrible twosome emerging from a giant vagina. You have been warned.
Open until Feb 9th 2014.

Patrick Caulfield/Gary Hume at the Tate Britain
This summer the Tate Britain is pairing two icons of English contemporary art, Patrick Caulfield and Gary Hume.
Tracing the development of Caulfield’s distinctive style, the show features over 30 significant pieces from key moments in his career. Seminal pieces such as Dining Recess 1972 and Interior with a Picture 1985-6 are being shown alongside less well known works and paintings.
Showing alongside is an exhibition on contemporary painter Gary Hume. Hume is known for his bold exploration of colour, line and surface, and was a leading figure in the ‘Young British Artists’ group.
Tate Britain brings together 24 artworks spanning his career from 1988. The show features iconic paintings and sculptures alongside less familiar pieces, new works and international loans not yet seen before in the UK.
All Night Summer Shorts at Jealous Gallery
The Jealous Team introduces all new 'All Night Summer Shorts' to the window our Crouch End gallery, a walk by cinematic experience.
Throughout the summer we will be showing short films by MA graduates, beginning with with 'Stumbling Block' by Mitra Saboury, MFA Goldsmiths.
Mitra Saboury's work articulates the effect of the built environment on subjective experience. She has a Bachelors of Science in neuroscience from the University of Pittsburgh, and is currently completing her Masters in Fine Arts at Goldsmiths College. She has exhibited internationally and was recently selected by Axisweb as a MAstar, distinguishing the most promising artists from the UK’s leading MA courses.
As the world quickly moves towards a ‘paperless’ society and even art is threatened with Digitalization, Saatchi Gallery debuts their latest exhibition ‘Paper’.
Jealous recommend visiting The Serpentine this month to see the first solo exhibition of American artist Sturtevant held in a UK public institution.
Sturtevant is celebrated for her work centered around the relationship between repetition and difference, placing particular emphasis on replicating a selection of prolific artists who themselves lifted their imagery from pre-existing sources.
LEAPS JUMPS AND BUMPS showcases a retrospective of Sturtevant’s work since the 1970s, and at an almighty 83 years old, she is still top of her game. The exhibition features core works in a variety of media and platforms, including Finite Infinite (2010), an impressive large-scale video piece, and Gonzalez-Torres Untitled (2004), an adornment of light bulbs) an earlier version of which was shown at the Serpentine Gallery in 2000 in the Felix Gonzalez-Torres exhibition).
Unique in many respects, this show allows you to experience artwork that constantly reworks and refreshes the notion of repetition.
Come and visit The Ellen Gallagher solo show at the Tate Modern this summer, not one to be missed! Ellen Gallagher is one of the most acclaimed contemporary artists to have emerged from North America since the mid-1990s.

This is her first major solo exhibition in the UK, providing the first ever opportunity to explore an overview of her twenty-year career.

Jealous Prize Winner Erica Donovan at the Venice Biennale
Past Jealous Graduate Prize Winner Erica Donovan has been commissioned by Artquest to create new work for the Artists Pavilion at the Venice Biennale.
The Artists Pavilion is the primary social space for visual artists throughout the Biennale previews.
Every two years, Venice becomes the international meeting point for the contemporary art world, with over 400,000 art lovers, critics and professionals flocking to the city to take in the vast array of art, architecture, music and theatre as well as the Venice Film Festival.
Erica transformed the window of The Artists Pavilion into a façade of an English beach hut. Erica constructed and photographed a model of the beach hut, which was then scaled up on Contravision to fit the window.
Much of Erica’s work uses simple, bold colours and highly skilled techniques to create pieces that are unique, approachable and that parallel the concepts behind her work. Her beach hut is a humorous response to the national pavilions from a ‘British seaside holiday’ perspective.
Erica is a MA Graduate of Fine Art from Camberwell School of Art and won one of the first Jealous Graduate Prizes back in 2009. A highly talented screen printer, Erica has exhibited across the UK, with residencies including The Florence Trust in Islington. Erica has also set up her own screen print studio where she teaches screen printing, produces and publishes her own work.

The Pomp of Circumstances presents a series of works that operate on the understanding that belief systems – be they philosophical, ideological or religious – are largely based on a labyrinth of accidents, mistranslations, pseudo-scientific reasoning and dogmatic entrapment.
It runs until Friday 6th July at Nancy Victor Gallery at 6 Charlotte Street, Fitzrovia, London W1T 1SG, more info www.chrisagnew.co.uk

Out of Focus is the Saatchi Gallery’s first major photography exhibition in 11 years, presenting wide-ranging work from 38 artists who challenge established "rules" of photography, demonstrating how the medium has evolved — often in unconventional and surprising ways — and giving an insightful snapshot of today’s photography at its most innovative.
Damien Hirst first came to public attention in London in 1988 when he conceived and curated Freeze, an exhibition in a disused warehouse which showed his work and that of his friends and fellow students at Goldsmiths College. In the nearly quarter of a century since that pivotal show, Hirst has become one of the most influential artists of his generation. This will be the first substantial survey of his work in a British institution and will bring together key works from over twenty years. The exhibition will include iconic sculptures from his Natural History series, including The Physical Impossibility of Death in the Mind of Someone Living 1991, in which he suspended a shark in formaldehyde. Also included will be vitrines such as A Thousand Years from 1990, medicine cabinets, pill cabinets and instrument cabinets in addition to seminal paintings made throughout his career using butterflies and flies as well as spots and spins. The two-part installation In and Out of Love, not shown in its entirety since its creation in 1991 and Pharmacy 1992 will be among the highlights of the exhibition.
A must see;
Alighiero E Boetti (1940–1994) was one of the most important and influential Italian artists of the twentieth century. He was a key member of the Arte Povera group of young Italian artists in the late 1960s which was working in radically new ways using simple materials. This will be the first solo show by an Arte Povera artist at Tate Modern.
The Royal Academy of Arts presents the first major exhibition of new landscape works by David Hockney RA. Featuring vivid paintings inspired by the East Yorkshire landscape, these large-scale works have been created especially for the galleries at the Royal Academy of Arts and are shown alongside related drawings and film.
This is a varied, spectacular exhibition of a truly unique artist. There has never been an exhibition of this size of her work in the UK and this is an unmissable opportunity for both Kusama fans and those new to her work.
Jealous will be exhibiting at the London Art Fair, at the Islington Business Design Centre from 18th - 22nd January 2012.
