ORGAN: Our pick of 2021’s Art Things – Deborah Roberts, The Factory Project, Rebel Dykes, New Art Projects, the KLF on Kingsland Road, Kate Bickmore, Sam Nicholson, Gavin Turk taking the piss, Eloise Govier, Pez, Nicola Hicks, Christopher Myers and who else?

Before anything else, before we start thinking about which show or gallery opening we enjoyed most in 2021 or the ones we’re going to go to first in 2022, before we start thinking about which gallery we’re going to stand outside of laughing and drimking beer with everyone, before all that we’ll just post an image we’ve shared before, a powerful image of “young women artists at The Center for Contemporary Art Afghanistan, a small arts centre in Kabul, in 2018” – and there was this as well, The Afghan Women’s Orchestra, little more is needed in terms of words. I’ve always agreed with Sean Scully’s argument that art is mostly a force for good, it is a freedom we very much take for granted though, and as we look back at a very fractured 2021 and look forward to whatever 2022 will throw at us, a thought for the female artists of Afghanistan, well really a thought for all the artists and musicians of Afghanistan and anywhere else where people can’t just gather at opening nights…

“Young women artists at The Center for Contemporary Art Afghanistan”

Here we go then, 2022, before we do though, a quick look back at the art year from our point of view. What a very (very) fractured year in terms of sharing art, viewing art, making art, showing art, exploring art, being an artist, enjoying artists, going to shows, putting on shows, what a shitstorm of a mess last year was.

Going back through these busy Organ pages, going way way back to the start of the year and the KLF on the Kingsland Road, it seems like rather a lot did actually happen over the year even though it kind of feels like we hardly made it to a gallery for the first half of locked-down 2021 and then we spent most of the rest of year avoiding crowds at openings and sneaking in through the side door on a quiet Tuesday afternoon instead. We certainly didn’t engage anywhere near as much as we were doing back before the times of you know what, but then really, who did? And it wasn’t just the pandemic that hit us in 2021, it was continuing loss of art spaces and places where artists can gather to make things happen on their own terms, especially over here on the East side of London town, it feels like the establishment galleries have taken a stronger grip this year, especailly in Cork Street here in London, that any notion of an art underground is rather broken right now, we need more artists coming together to make things happen on our terms in 2022, we need more unity, more collaboration, more supporting each other, more breaking of the closed-door rules. more challenge, more of us artists making it happen

It was a strange year, we all know, it was mostly explore behind a mask, here are some of the highlights in terms of the shows and art events we encountered. And by no means did we cover everything in 2021, this is not a “best of” claim, these are our highlights and yes, it is a touch sickening that the best thing we encountered, exciting as the work of Deborah Roberts is, that it was at the bigest of all establishment art events, let’s hope that isn’t the case in 2022..

Deborah Roberts

The Fifteen Standout Art Things from our 2021

1: Deborah Roberts and her arresting pieces at Frieze probably were the best things we saw in the flesh in 2021 – Those powerful pieces probably won it terms of the fair and the whole week, indeed, the year – that ambition in the pieces that mix painting, collage and so so much more, those faces of children that she says are all about the way we view children and how their colour criminalises them way before they’ve had a chance. They were just beautiful pieces before you even start to try and read them and put them in to some kind of context. There’s a lot of love in the pieces as they make eye contact with you, a lot of innocence, and they do look directly at you in such a powerfully positive way, they probably were the “wow” at Frieze this year, they almost certainly were the best things we saw there, they just came right off the wall and made contact in such a beautiful way. Deborah Roberts was presented by Stephen Friedman Gallery, read more – ORGAN: Frieze is open but where’s the “wow” this year? And where was that elephant? Was the art any good on day one of Frieze London 2021?  Not sure what we made of Frieze itself though? It was rather more conservative than ever and well read the piece if your curious. if they did address the massive climate issue it was at best tokenism, artwashing the very big issue. Fireze was on the whole disapointing, Deborah Roberts was a real treat.

2: The Factory Project – It all happened back in October, down in Docklands, down by the river in East London, a whole load of artists, artist-led galleries and curators coming together inside and outside a massive shell of an old industrial warehouse, for once a united set of London art people in what now, in terms of artist-led endeavour feels like rather disunited city. A whole lot of installation, hanging, art in skips – could have been a few more paintings on those glorious warehouse walls – not everything about it was perfect but so much of it was so so rewarding, we need more artists coming together like that, we need more art happening in spaces like that, this was almost a throwback, and exciting event. Read the review and explore all the photos – The Factory Project is a triumphant way to get your teeth into Frieze week, an ambitiously big art show that really does lay down a challenge…  

3: Fred Mann’s New Art Projects gallery over here in Hackney continued to deliver with a series of excellent shows, some of the most rewarding shows of 2021, hard to pick which one was best, the gallery was on great form throuhout the year, here’s the links to some of the reviews and photos – Franko B, Sadie Lee, two essential art shows at Hackney’s New Art Projects… or Two new shows at Hackney’s New Art Projects, Karen Finley’s way with words, Jonny Green’s powerful portrait play… or Adam Hennessey, Kate Belton, two very fine art shows at New Art Projects, Hackney, London… or The day the world turned dayglo, Hattie Malcomson’s brightness, a painterly statement of intent next to Alex Hudson’s European “traditions” at East London’s New Art Projects…

4: The Rebel Dykes Art and Archives Show at Space Station Sixty-Five really didn’t need too much coverage from us (we have been covering those Rebels quite a lot in recent years), it was a highlight that surely can’t be left out of any self-respecting end of year round up though – Five Recommended Art Things – Tewodros Hagos at Kristin Hjellegjerde Gallery, The Rebel Dykes Art and Archives Show at Space Station Sixty-Five, Our Types at Gallery46, Zachari Logan, Wild Flower at Canada Gallery, D*Face at StolenSpace, Still… oh and there was their film that flew all over the globe in 2021, all power to those Rebel Dykes….

5: The KLF kicked of 2021 in East London under a bridge on Kingsland Road – ORGAN THING: Sample City Thru Transcentral, the KLF on Kingsland Road…

6; The Peter Prendergast show that only happened in the gallery window back at the Messum’s London space back in January, a disappointment that we couldn’t actually see it other than in the window but a highlight of the year all the same – A video of the Peter Prendergast exhibition that should have been… or ORGAN PREVIEW: A rare London show for painter Peter Prendergast and his vitally vigorous style, this is indeed exciting news… or Five Recommended Art Things – Polina Barskaya, Peter Prendergast at Messum, Josef Herman at Albany Gallery, Chila Burman on TalkArt, Jeanne Golightly…

7: Kate Bickmore’s must-see paintings at Annka Kultys Gallery just about stretched into Frieze week and once again, as they did two or three years ago with that Marton Nemes show, the East London gallery stood out again during Frieze Week. Did have to go back for one more look before the beautiful show show closed, did g oseveral times, we did cover it a number of times on these fractured pages, big bold exciting paintings – ORGAN THING: Kate Bickmore’s must-see paintings went on show at the Annka Kultys Gallery last night…

8: Gavin Turk did rather take the piss in 2021 – “Artist’s Piss, 2021 – In a playful homage to Piero Manzoni, who 60 years ago created one of the most radical and challenging modern artworks, Merda d’Artista. Manzoni put his own sh*t into tins and sold it for its equivalent weight in gold. Gavin Turk’s latest project is a response to this, canning his own urine and selling it for its weight in sliver. Sealed in a specially screen printed aluminium can” – Gavin Turk continues to take the piss with a new exhibition and talk this week… or Is Gavin Turk really taking the piss? – Piscio d’Artista, “Let’s produce, can, sell and ship a new body of work—from the artist’s own body” and you had to smile at that “golf sale” sign

9: Painter Sam Nicholson had a rather powerful debut solo show called “Bring me my papers, bring me my cheese.” at East London’s Gallery46 – Apparently this is the the first solo show from “London based emerging painter Sam Nicholson”, for once the overused term “emerging” seems right, is this really the work of a 21 year old? There’s a boldness here, a confidence, an already knowing way, there’s guts, honour, challenge, there’s energy, (energy rather than an energy), the sense of an artist demanding something of himself, something very physical in the marks, something almost intimidating as you stand there thinking to yourself, “f*** he’s good!”. – Sam Nicholson at Gallery 46, there’s a rather bold painter emerging here…

Sam Nicholson ay Gallery 46

10: There was Welsh painter Eloise Govier and her glorious use of colour – A solo exhibition ‘Ar Lan y Môr’ featuring paintings by Welsh artist Eloise Govier as part of Wales Week London… or Five pieces of art – Eloise Govier, a new Evgeny Antufiev piece, those beautiful Julie Caves studies, Mark McGowan aka The Artist Taxi Driver, Bert Gilbert and Izzer Ers and those Liberation Suits… and she did figure in a Cultivate on line show or two. The bold style of Eloise excited us in 2021.

11: That Nichola Hicks show, Dump Circus, at Flowers Gallery’s East London space on the Kingland Road was a highlight, “Dump Circus is a large-scale installation imagining an urban wasteland where the natural world has been ravaged and suffocated by debris and greed. Within this scene, a cast of wild and domestic creatures have bested their ringmaster” – Nicola Hicks, Dump Circus at Flowers Gallery, East London, an installation and an art show not to be missed…

Nicola Hicks – Dump Circus

12: The Art on a Postcard team did good things again in 2021, they’re always a source of exciting artists – The Art on a Postcard Winter Auction comes to a climax on Thursday, here’s our pick of the art you just about have time to bid on… or The Art on a Postcard Winter Auction is back for its seventh year celebrating a much bigger twenty years for The Hepatitis C Trust and…. or Mollie E Barnes and She Curates x Art on a Postcard, a mini auction of thirty plus cards created by a handful of dynamic female identifying artists… or “Bidding Opens Thursday”, the Art on Postcard Summer Auction 2021 is upon us…

Here’s a pick of the art you can find there… – we are looking forward to a physical return though, hopefully in May we’re told. Both the Art on a Postcard and Art Car Bootfair teams brough us soem exciting new artists in 2021…

13: We did enjoy Christopher Myers, as well as Elisabeth Wild and Vivian Suter and the opening of the new permanent Frieze space at No9 Cork Street over in Mayfair. A new space that will host shows from a whole variety of galleries on the revitalised Cock Street. The new gallery got off to an excellent start with shows from three galleries back in October  –  ORGAN THING: The launch of No 9 Cork Street, Frieze kick off their new gallery space with the textile-based flavours of Christopher Myers, Elisabeth Wild and Vivian Suter…

Christopher Myers

14: The Sinistry was a “contemporary art collaboration” featuring artists Bert Gilbert and Izzer Ers, a whole mix of games, paint and textiles, it happened back in June where we were locked down far more than we are now, it was a great show over here in East London, a powerful show that I suspect was missed by most – ORGAN THING: Partners in the Game of Life – The Sinistry, an intriguing show, an exciting show, a set of beautiful games at Canal Place, Hackney, London E8… or Partners in the Game of Life – The Sinistry, an intriguing show, an exciting show, a set of beautiful games at Canal Place, Hackney, London E8…

15: Anytime Pez brings his smiles to town is a good time – “We passed a Pez on the way to the show, pretty hard not to pass a Pez on the streets of London, there’s been a lot of smiling out there, they’ve been documented often enough of these fractured pages over the years. “StolenSpace is excited to present the new summer group exhibition” so trumpeted the East London gallery that you still find at the very top of Brick Lane – Pez at StolenSpace, what is there not to like about all that smiling?

Pez at Stolen Space

Cultivate: Well we did quietly celebrate ten years of Cultivate shows, exhibitions, events, (definance?) in 2021 and we make no apologies for including ourselves in this round up. Ten years of art in all kinds of different places, something like 170 shows, the art of (at least) two thousand or so artists shown, more if we really were to check the numbers. Some of it nomadic, some of it down Vyner Street (when that was still a thing), some of it under railway bridges or in car parks or of greengrocer shops or on line or in traditional white-walled galleries – ORGAN THING: Before the year ends, a little more trumpet blowing and a marking of ten years of carefully Cultivated art shows… or Happy birthday to us, Cultivate is ten.

Deptford X happened again after an enforced Covid break in 2020, the long running arts festival mostly happened outside in 2021 and yes, I did take part again so the coverage was from my point of view, but put that aside, it was a damn fine week before we even get to those leaves left, there was a strong mix of shows and events, it might well have been one of the best X weeks – Leaving leaves at Deptford X, explore the festival, the art, the streets, Absent Friends at APT Gallery, Sky Circles at Indigo and Madder… or Deptford X starts this weekend, the long-running South London arts festival promises lots…
