Jonathan Monk is to present an exhibition of new works at Lisson Gallery Milan this May, with the participation of leading Arte Povera artists.

Included in the exhibition will be six identical busts depicting Monk’s own head, their features rendered in a classicized manner traditionally associated with Roman sculptural portraiture. Cast in white Jesmonite, these busts will only be considered to be ‘complete’ once the noses have been knocked from them- after which they will be displayed on individual plinths in the main gallery. Invited to knock the noses from Monk’s sculptures will be prominent artists from the Arte Povera movement, with Jannis Kounellis, Gilberto Zorio and Emilio Prini having already removed noses in the series.

On display alongside Monk’s busts will be a new sculptural work- cast in bronze- of a life-size, covered motorbike. A small publication will accompany the exhibition and will feature original images of Monk’s 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
