Serpentine Gallery Marathon

. May 30, 2013

Taking place in London during Frieze Art Fair on Friday 18 & Saturday 19 October 2013 and inspired by Sou Fujimoto’s cloud-like Pavilion 2013 for the Serpentine Gallery, the 89plus Marathon will bring emerging practitioners from all disciplines together with world-renowned artists and thinkers.

The 89plus Marathon will be the eighth in the Serpentine Gallery’s annual Marathon series, an ambitious event that brings together the fields of art, culture, science and technology. Previous Marathons were the Interview Marathon, 2006 (with Rem Koolhaas); the Experiment Marathon, 2007 (with Olafur Eliasson); the Manifesto Marathon, 2008; the Poetry Marathon, 2009; the Map Marathon, 2010; the Garden Marathon, 2011 and last year’s Memory Marathon.

The Serpentine Gallery Marathon series was conceived by Co-Director Hans Ulrich Obrist in 2006 and is deeply intertwined with the annual Serpentine Gallery Pavilion Commission, launched by Director Julia Peyton-Jones in 2000.

The 89plus Marathon is curated by Hans Ulrich Obrist, Simon Castets and Jochen Volz.
