For the spring season 2013, Magasin 3 is proud to present a solo exhibition featuring works by Mika Rottenberg, spanning from the early 2000s to today.

Mika Rottenberg at Magasin 3 Stockholm Konsthall

Mika Rottenberg’s video installations show an imaginative world of surreal scenes where inane objects are produced in protracted processes resembling factory assembly lines. The workers in Rottenberg’s videos are often played by women who earn their living on their distinctive physical features, such as extreme obesity, muscularity, height or unusually long nails or hair. In the claustrophobic settings she constructs, these women engage in the production of maraschino cherries, dough, make-up and wet-wipes in the most astonishing ways. The sets Mika Rottenberg designs for the characters in her videos also partly extend into the exhibition space. The aesthetics of the mundane take on new significance when the web of production and consumption that surrounds us is experienced as both intimately familiar and intuitively unsettling.

Mika Rottenberg was born in 1976 in Buenos Aires, Argentina. Raised and educated in Israel, she relocated to New York ten years ago, where she now lives and works.

Lord's Pavilion

As the cricket season draws to a close, Marylebone Cricket Club (MCC) can report a surge in popularity for guests seeking a full day of luxury hospitality at Lord’s during a Test Match in 2016. In the Home of Cricket’s most iconic venues – the Captains’ Lounge and Marylebone Suite – hospitality packages which included a hearty breakfast, sumptuous four-course lunch and luxury afternoon tea, sold out quickly for the first three days of the England v Sri Lanka and England v Pakistan Investec Test Matches. Private Boxes with the best views of the action for up to 18 guests also sold out fast for the same days. MCC revealed a sharp increase in revenue for its 2016 Sri Lanka Test Match hospitality packages compared with 2014 when the team last played England at Lord’s. Revenues for hospitality were up by nearly 30% over the same period in 2014 whilst private box sale revenues were up by a healthy 60%. Nick Kenton, MCC Head of Sales, Meetings & Events and Hospitality, said: “2016 has been a fantastic year for enjoying a day of cricket whilst experiencing the very best food, drink and hospitality that Lord’s has to offer. “This year’s sales figures show that hospitality packages at Lord’s were in huge demand and continue to be a key part of the summer sporting calendar.” Lord’s also expects high demand for its new hospitality packages, to be released this autumn for 2017 matches. These include England v South Africa from 6th to 10th July and England v West Indies from 7th to 11th September. Packages for the England v Ireland Royal London One-Day International on 7th May 2017 are also expected to sell out in record time. Details of all hospitality options at Lord’s can be found on its website
