Referencing Arte Povera, Rebecca Ward rarely uses a brush when painting, instead preferring traditional and found materials. Using an eclectic range of media including bleach, acrylic, spray paint, gouache and fabric dye, Ward continues her investigation of the relationship between the painted surface and its base.
In March, Ward will spend several weeks creating new work at the former atelier of Alighiero Boetti in Todi, Italy. Boetti’s atelier is a beautifully designed space on the estate of the Boetti family home overlooking the Umbrian countryside, where Alighiero’s eldest son Matteo now lives. The work created by Rebecca Ward during those weeks will be presented at Ronchini Gallery in London as well as the inaugural show at Matteo Boetti’s gallery, Bibo, due to open in Todi in Spring 2013. The show at Bibo will be presented in collaboration with ARTNESIA and Ronchini, who have had a gallery space in Umbria since 1992. The collaboration marks the consolidation of decades of friendship between the Boetti and Ronchini families.
About Rebecca Ward (b. 1984, Waco, TX)
Ward lives and works in New York. Working across installation and painting, her primary concerns are colour and space. Ward’s much-celebrated tape installations adhere to ceilings, walls and floors, converging with existing architecture. This perceptual play of colour, texture and light is set into motion by the viewer’s interaction with the work. Her paintings are a result of everyday questioning and experimentation within the studio. Ward has recently gained wider international recognition, completing commissions for both Stella McCartney and Center 548, the former Dia Art Foundation space in Chelsea, NY. Recent exhibitions include The Virgins curated by Marilyn Minter, the inaugural show at Maurizio Cattelan and Massimiliano Gioni’s gallery Family Business in New York (2011) and TIME, after TIME at Ronchini Gallery London (2012). This year Rebecca Ward will also participate in a group show at Aperto, a gallery for emerging Russian and international artists in St Petersburg, curated by Elena Yushina.

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
