Read Miranda Sawyer’s Guardian interview with actor and art collector Russell Tovey. Sawyer and Tovey discuss contemporary art, collecting, Margate, and more. OSE gets a shout-out in a section about Margate Now:
From 28 September until 13 October Margate is being taken over by art: as well as the Turner prize, there will be performances and screenings, pieces placed in unexpected places, work that only lasts a few days, and other works that have been months in the making. Five hundred artists and performers making more than 60 events in total, most involving Margate citizens. Yuri Suzuki, a local artist, has created 12 horns representing 12 sections of Kent that will broadcast songs and tales sung and told by locals. Open School East has been busy working with Margate kids, as has 1927, a theatre company.
