    Coming soon, the first substantial overview of the artistic practice of Laith McGregor. Taking the major 2012 work S-O-M-E-O-N-E as both its title piece and a point of embarkation, this book avoids the formal and structural conventions of the traditional monograph, it is neither exhaustive nor linear in its breadth. Rather, it assumes the similarly rigorous and rambling quality that has come to characterise McGregor’s scroll-like drawings, idiosyncratic sculptures and painted gestures, honing its focus on a selection of key works created during the last five years. Made in close collaboration with the artist, S-O-M-E-O-N-E offers an at once critical, playful and heuristic expression of a practice that is psychic, layered, cumulative, diaristic and highly personal in its scope.
    Published by Perimeter Editions, with texts by Romy Ash and Robert Leonard, S-O-M-E-O-N-E will be available in early 2017.

    Marian Tubbs will be presenting new works at the SculptureCenter in New York City early next year as part of their 'In Practice' program. A program that offers emerging artists curatorial and financial support to create new work for exhibition at SculptureCenter. The resulting exhibition from this program, titled Material Deviance, looks at artistic practices that explore irregularities, glitches, gaps, residues, and altered states - either found or enacted - as a means of accessing the latent histories of materials in order to expose underlying systems of power, regulation, value, and control.
    Opening on 29 January, the exhibition runs until 27 March 2017
