In the winter and spring months of 2016, Serpentine Galleries launches The Magazine Sessions, a new series of immersive performances programmed in collaboration with Fiorucci Art Trust and taking place in the Zaha Hadid-designed space of The Magazine at the Serpentine North Gallery.
The Magazine Sessions invites artists to devise site-specific evenings of performance, where all aspects of the experience are considered. Events will range from specially-conceived music and theatre performances to immersive environments to be explored and activated by the visitor. As part of the concept for The Magazine sessions, artists will devise unique menus of vegan food and drink, in collaboration with The Magazine restaurant.
