Mark Beasley is a British curator and writer based in New York. He is currently a curator at Performa, the only biennial dedicated to commissioning, presenting and exploring new visual art performance across disciplines. Selected curatorial projects with Performa include Florian Hecker’s ‘CD: A Script for Synthesis’ at the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum; Ed Atkins ‘Man of Steel’ at Anthology Archives; Tori Wranes ‘Yes Nix;’ Frances Stark and Mark Leckey’s ‘Put a Song in Your Thing’ at Abrons Theater; Robert Ashley’s ‘That Morning Thing’ at the Kitchen; Mike Kelley’s ‘Day Is Done’ at Judson Church; Arto Lindsay’s ‘Somewhere I Read’; and the experimental music festival, co-curated with Mike Kelley, ‘A Fantastic World Superimposed on Reality.’

In 2013 he organized a series of performances inconjunction with the touring retrospective exhibition ‘Mike Kelley’ at MoMA PS1 that included Michael Smith, X-TG, Kim Gordon and Jutta Koether. As a curator with Creative Time he curated ‘This World & Nearer Ones;’ ‘Hey Hey Glossolalia: Exhibiting the Voice;’ and Javier Tellez’s critically acclaimed film ‘A Letter on the Blind.’ In 2011 he established the Malcolm McLaren Award for Performa, presented by Lou Reed to Ragnar Kjartansson.

He graduated from the Royal College of Art, London and recently completed a Ph.D. in Fine Art at Reading University, UK: he is a tutor on the MA Curatorial Practice course at the School of Visual Arts, New York. Beasley’s first LP with the group Big Legs is currently available on the London-and Amsterdam-based Junior Aspirin Records. 

Óscar Florit, is Director of L21 Gallery, Palma, and Madrid, Spain. In 2000 he graduated in Industrial Design in Escuela Superior de Diseño in Palma. In 2001, he opened his own interior design studio. Some of his projects were published in decorating magazines such as ADElle DecorYo Dona and Arquitectura y Diseño. In 2009 he opened a Showroom called Louis 21 in Palma, where he began t o develop interior design projects in his own space, inviting relevant people of the national culture, such as Nieves Barber, Teresa Matas, Daniel Riera, and Joan Morey.

In 2012 the showroom evolved and became a gallery named L 21 Gallery. In 2013, he opened a second gallery in Madrid. His work in the gallery focuses on encouraging new audiences and finding new exhibition formats, and supporting emerging art. As gallery owner he has coordinated more than 50 exhibition projects, which include individual exhibitions by Eugenio Merino, Kepa Garraza, Javier Calleja, Antonio Ballester Moreno, Álvaro Gil, Bel Fullana, Rafa Forteza, Cristina Garrido, Pep Canyelles, Teresa Matas, Jordi Ribes, Alejandro Leonhardt, Pep Vidal, and Ian Waelder.

He participates as a juror in different visual arts competitions and as a committee member in the artfair JustMad.

Bob and Roberta Smith is the name of the British artist whose best known works include: ~ Make Art Not War, which belongs to the Tate collection; and Letter to Michael G ove.

Bob and Roberta Smith see art as an important element in democratic life. Much of their art takes the form of painted signs. Central to Bob and Roberta Smith’s thinking is the idea that campaigns are extended art works which include a variety of consciousness raising artefacts.

Bob and Roberta Smith studied for his MA at Goldsmiths from 1991 to 93. He was an Artist Trustee of Tate between 2009 and 2013, and he is currently a trustee for the National Campaign for the Arts, and a patron of the NSEAD. He has recently been elected to be a Royal Academician.

Bob and Roberta Smith is actually one man. Before studying Fine Art at Goldsmiths in the early 1990’s, Bob lived in Rome, New York and Wensleydale, and now lives between Leytonstone in East London and Ramsgate.


Up for grabs are great exposure, exhibition and sales opportunities as well as inclusion in our brand new Amazon Art Sales Platform - not to mention cash prizes for selected ArtSlant Prize winners. See below for all the details.
