Isolation Interviews: Aglaé Bassens and Brooke Benington

Issue 20

Continuing the Isolation Interviews: a series of weekly artist and curator profiles highlighting current concerns, accompanied by a selection of available works.


We know that these are precarious and uncertain times for everyone and with so many people staying at home, self-isolating or social distancing, we want to be able to continue sharing some of our favourite art and artists with you. The Isolation Interviews are a weekly series of conversations with artists and curators that will explore how these new circumstances are affecting their practices, projects and productivity. We’ll hear how they are finding solutions - and even opportunities - and what their plans and hopes are for the future.


Brooke Benington is committed to supporting and creating opportunities for artists. We believe that this is needed now more than ever. Most artists are self-employed, often supplementing their income by working as technicians, fabricators, assistants, teachers and a whole host of other jobs. Now, many have very suddenly lost a vital source of income. With this in mind, we are accompanying each Isolation Interview with a curated selection of work by that artist, available for purchase.


Thank you for your continued support. Stay safe and look after one another.

Lily & George Directors, Brooke Benington
