London Gallery Weekend: Mandy El-Sayegh Performance 'The Minumum'Sunday 15 May | Time: 2-2.30pm
Mandy El-Sayegh Performance The Minumum at Allen Gardens, London E1 5AT
Join us on Sunday 15 May, 14:00 – 14:30 BST at Allen Gardens to enjoy the performative public art commission The Minimum by artist Mandy El-Sayegh, one of the most exciting young artists working today. This commission is developed by London Gallery Weekend in partnership with UP Projects, a leading public art commissioning organisation.
The Minimum by Mandy El-Sayegh is created in collaboration with choreographer Alethia Antonia and composer Lily Oakes drawing on hip hop and freestyle movement practices to explore bodies in regulated spaces. The performance centres around a painted installation roughly the size of a solitary confinement cell, inviting audiences to consider how bodies make themselves visible in diverse sets of restrictions.
"This exciting new co-commission by London Gallery Weekend and UP Projects is an unparalleled opportunity to experience a visceral, site-specific performance in three public locations in London by Mandy El-Sayegh, one of the most exciting young artists working today. Fusing her painting, installation and performance practices, Mandy's work addresses urgent topics of our time, exploring that terrain personally and geopolitically in a way that is deeply affecting, and relevant to a broad audience." – Bengi Ünsal, Director of the Institute of Contemporary Arts

Jan Dalley speaks to a range of guests about the power of partnership and pioneering endeavours. First up, Jenny Waldman, director of the Art Fund, and Jessica Barrie, a curator at Aberdeen Archives, Galleries and Museums, discuss a new and exciting initiative bringing together London's commercial galleries with public institutions from around the whole country. This is followed by conversations centred around environmental concerns, with leading industry figures Thomas Dane and Victoria Siddall, founders of the Gallery Climate Coalition, talking about how this groundbreaking idea came to fruition and how it's gained traction from solutions-hungry galleries looking for more responsible way to operate; and the artist Haroon Mirza, whose visionary work centres around energy and power, about how a perception shift is needed from within the industry in order to bring about change.
The way ahead
In the second episode in LGW's podcast series hosted by Jan Dalley, Arts Editor of the Financial Times, visits sculptor Antony Gormley at his studio in North London, before heading to Peckham to speak to gallerist Hannah Barry and curator and art historian Aindrea Emelife, and then joins gallerist David Zwirner on Zoom from New York, to discuss topics ranging from the impact of London Gallery Weekend, to how galleries and artists are addressing the issue of climate change, and the future of the gallery model itself.
Produced by Danielle Radojcin at In Talks With.
Collaboration and crossing over
Jan Dalley travels around the city speaking to artists, gallerists, curators and collectors about the London landscape and how galleries have relied on each other during the pandemic and how competition has evolved into collaboration. With Rana Begum, Harry Beer, Caroline Douglas, Sigrid Kirk and Jimi Lee.
