Contemporary Lynx and PROJECT Thirteen would like to invite you to join us in celebrating the launch of the latest issue of Contemporary Lynx Magazine 1 (15) 2021, on Friday 4 June at 13 Soho Square/ PROJECT Thirteen.
There will be a panel discussion (7 pm – 8 pm), a drinks reception (8 pm – 10 pm) and free copies of the magazines for 30 first visitors and exhibition viewing.
The panellists Marta Marsicka, Dr Dimitrios Tsivrikos, Marek Wolynski will reflect on a sense of community, group work in creative circles, and collective activities in the sphere of art. Maggio Carizi will moderate the discussion.
The art exhibition “Major Incident” by Piotr Krzymowski will be available on view during the evening. Krzymowski looks at the COVID19 crisis through the perspective of an artist-activist and creates an engaging story through his multi-media installations.
The latest issue of Contemporary Lynx allows you to reflect on a sense of community in the context of the art scene. Inside, you will find the first interview in ten years with Tino Sehgal. You will take a closer look at the work of Moldovan artist Pavel Brăila, who has presented his work at documenta and Manifesta, focusing on his national identity, capitalism and post-communism. You will also read an interview with the young artist Agata Ingarden. In addition, you can delve into the everyday life of the London community, depicted in the largest painting by Dale Lewis. You will have an opportunity to read the script of Krzysztof Kieślowski’s unrealised film “Shot of the Week”, which is presented to the public for the first time. The playful cover — a colouring page is handcrafted by artist Paola Ciarska. Everyone can complete this painting and colour it any way they like, becoming its co-author.

Marta Marsicka is a curator and art historian based in Birmingham. She works as Programme Coordinator at Centrala gallery, creating and implementing on and off-site events and exhibitions. Her interests and practice involve Central and Eastern European art, history of political art and issues surrounding identity and representation. Marta’s goal as an arts practitioner is to question the status quo and make the British art scene as diverse as its society.
Dr Dimitrios Tsivrikos is the co-director of Neon Art Gallery, having previously established his own private art advising practice, and currently oversees a number of blue-chip contemporary art collections. He has led numerous sales with Christie’s, Sotheby’s and other premiere auction houses that have resulted in enormously successful transactions, including a world-record sale for a work by Alberto Burri (Saccho e Rosso, $13.2 million). Dr Tsivrikos’ doctoral studies in economic psychology, coupled with his curatorial education at Central Saint Martin’s College and Zurich University of the Arts, enable him to collaborate with a wide range of clients and offer insightful art advisory and curatorial services.
Marek Wolynski is a London-based curator and creative producer. He is particularly interested in multi-sensory experiences and the interplay between art, nature, and technology. Marek is also an art consultant and writer and has been part of the Contemporary Lynx team since 2015. He has staged large-scale immersive projects, including the retrospective of Theo Jansen’s Stranbeest kinetic sculptures and Alan James Burns’ Entirely hollow aside from the dark, a series of 32-channel psychoacoustic sound events inside Creswell Crags Caves. Since 2021, Marek has worked with D-Fuse, currently producing Nine Earths—one of the British Council’s creative commissions for COP26, the upcoming United Nations Climate Change Conference in Glasgow.
Maggio Carizi grew up in a family dedicated to theatre and supporting those less able through the medium of art. After graduating with a BA in Economics and Development from SOAS University, she has worked with art-focused charities in London. PROJECT thirteen was born from the observations of these two worlds.
