Alex Hartley

Artist Alex Hartley is hoping to challenge our perspectives of time and place. His latest exhibition, ‘After You Left’, can be seen at London’s Victoria Miro gallery but Hartley has been messing with the boundaries of art and our sense of belonging throughout his career: in 2012 he created his own nation ‘NowhereIsland’, inspired by his genuine discovery of a completely unknown landmass that had previously been hidden away in the Arctic Circle.

Robert Glasper

The Robert Glasper Experiment’s new album, ‘ArtScience’, fuses jazz, soul and hip-hop influences to create a new sound – and doesn’t shy away from some of the divisive issues facing Glasper’s native US either. Glasper sits down with Monocle’s Robert Bound to explain where his inspiration comes from.
