Harper's Bazaar UK launches Bazaar Art Week

Harper’s Bazaar is set to launch Bazaar Art Week, a new series of consumer and industry events that will celebrate the achievements and talents of women in the art world.


Bazaar Art Week ()


Bazaar Art Week will bring to life the magazine’s annual print supplement, Bazaar Art, produced in association with Bentley. The special issue, on sale in October, will feature a set of limited-edition, collectable covers created by leading female artists.

Bazaar Art Week will take place at multiple locations across central London between 1 and 7 October, one of the most important weeks in the British art calendar. The event will connect readers with trailblazers from the art world, including museum directors, artists, curators, gallerists, collectors and entrepreneurs.

Reader events include:

- Ahead of the new V&A Photography Centre opening to the public on 12 October, the V&A will host a bespoke presentation of photographs taken by female Bazaar photographers, including Lillian Bassman, Diane Arbus and Genevieve Naylor, and a selection of previously unseen images recently donated to the V&A by the Linda McCartney Foundation.

- A special evening view and curator’s tour of Atelier E.B’s new exhibition ‘Passer-by’ at the Serpentine Sackler Gallery, in the company of Serpentine Galleries CEO Yana Peel and Harper’s Bazaar.

- A ‘How to invest in art’ discussion at 34 Mayfair, with panellists including the patron and collector Valeria Napoleone, and Martina Batovic, the auction house Dorotheum’s UK director and contemporary specialist.

- An introduction to the Soho House Art Collection with Kate Bryan, head of global collections, who will host a panel of established and emerging female artists, including Susan Hiller, Annie Kevans and Sarah Maple, all of whom have contributed pieces across the houses.

Industry events include:

- Bazaar’s annual, invitation-only art party at Mark’s Club, which brings together the worlds of fashion and art, with guests including VIPs, Turner Prize-winning artists and leading curators and gallerists.

- The unveiling of a new sculpture by the artist Guggi at Embassy Gardens, Ballymore’s new luxury development, with cocktails and canapés by Robin Gill.

Bazaar Art Week is supported by the property developer Ballymore and the Champagne house Ruinart.

Justine Picardie, the editor-in-chief of Harper’s Bazaar UK and Town & Country UK, said: ‘Harper’s Bazaar has a proud heritage of celebrating visionary women in the art world. Bazaar Art Week will allow our readers an exclusive opportunity to hear from established artists and gain valuable insight from inspirational leaders in the art industry.’
