In celebration of Frieze Art Fair 2014art:i:curate teams with Paul Smith to host an innovative exhibition of work by emerging London-based artists that combines Mayfair’s deep-rooted art heritage with the digital world’s trail-blazing creative community. 

 

Open to all, by registering at articurate.net, everyone has the opportunity to express their creativity in front of an audience of both art fans and the industry’s elite. 

 

Actress Alison Wright, a collector since her early childhood, introduces us to her most precious possession.

 

 

City: New York City
Profession: Actress
Secret profession or as a kid I wanted to be: A pop star or to work on a supermarket till. 

 

AIC: How would you describe your own personal aesthetic?

AW: Vintage, movie-musical-esque.

 

AIC: How would your friends describe your personality?

AW Funny, loving, loyal. (Or maybe they think I'm a pain in the ass.)

 

AIC: What inspires you?

AW: Photography, weather, color, atmosphere.

 

AIC: Who's your hero?

AW: Filmaker Mike Leigh.

 

AIC: Do you consider yourself a collector? If so, what do you collect?

AW: I was a manic collector as a child and I have so many gorgeous memories of the erasers and stickers I collected. I have them still and the scratch and sniffs are still smelling! I would collect things now if I didn't have a NYC sized apartment.

 

AIC: What's your most precious possession?

AW: My dog, Luigi.

 

AIC: What does the term 'curating' mean to you?

AW: Choosing, culling and creating with an ultimate vision in mind. 

 

AIC: Why did you get involved in this project?

AW:  I've really enjoyed being involved with art:i:curate. It's fun and exciting and I'm interested in whatever they are up to next.

 

AIC: How do you usually take art in?

AW: I'm a performer, so all ways, viscerally all the time. Also the old fashioned way..I go to galleries and exhibitions. 

 

AIC: Describe Paul Smith in three words.

AW: British, proper, fun.

 

AIC: Tell me something about yourself - anything.​

AW: Lately I'm all about Owls.
