             CELINA LANGEN                  
Discussing Helen Gorrill's "Benedict Re-bound Confession"
 Salon Contemporary was thrilled to announce Celina Langen as the first winner of our new and very exciting ‘Curator of the Month’ competition launched back in November. ‘Curator of the Month’ offers young talents the chance to curate an exhibition of the nation’s aspiring contemporary artists in the artistic hub of Notting Hill.

Celina took this in her grasp, curating a magnificent exhibition comprising of works by previous Artist of the Week Winners, Helen Gorrill, the art collective Akleriah, Dragana Jurisic and Alyona Larionova; the preview night being a late night opening of Salon Contemporary for the First Wednesdays event, a very well received launch at the beginning of the month.

Celina discussed what her ideal exhibition would be to curate, her ideas about the emerging contemporary art within London and how the wealth of promising talent from graduates every year enables new possibilties in terms of curation and also the experience of indefinite types of artwork.
Due to the success of this show, the exhibition has been extended until Januray 30th 2011 until DEBUT Contemporary is launched early next year.
