I, Claude Monet – The Life and Art of Monet Alive on Screen

The latest in the pioneering series of Exhibition On Screen films directed by Phil Grabsky, I, Claude Monet offers a different approach from the usual.

'Bruegel – Defining a Dynasty' at Bath’s Holburne Museum

‘Bruegel – Defining a Dynasty’ at Bath’s Holburne Museum

If you’ve ever been confused by the Bruegel family tree, you’re not alone. There are Pieters and Jans and Elders and Youngers, then further down the lineage, Kessels and Teniers become involved, and suddenly your head becomes foggy. But fear not, a new exhibition opening this week at the Holburne Museum in Bath is set...
Alighiero Boetti Retrospective at Tornabuoni Paris

Alighiero Boetti Retrospective at Tornabuoni Paris

‘I think I make works that anyone could do. But then strangely no one does […] And that’s what I like most. Maybe the difference is that no one pays attention to these things.’ These are the words of the famous Italian post war Artist Alighiero Boetti (1940 – 1994). He is one of the best...

David Hockney – The Complete Early Etchings 1961-1964

As Tate Britain unveils its highly anticipated David Hockney retrospective, an intimate display in St. James’s takes a look at the much less trodden ground of the iconic British artist’s early etchings. Far from simply jumping on the Hockney bandwagon however, this show at Hazlitt Holland Hibbert features a version of every single print that...
Terrains of the Body at London's Whitechapel Gallery

Terrains of the Body at London’s Whitechapel Gallery

Since its inception photography has been implicated as an important mechanism in feminist resistance to patriarchal codes. “Men act and women appear,” commented art critic John Berger on the conventional photographic dichotomy, “men look at women. Women watch themselves being looked at.” Rather than bending their pliable limbs into submission, the female photographers of Whitechapel...

Aggro Gloss: Justine Frischmann’s Lambent Paintings

Aggro Gloss: Justine Frischmann’s Lambent Paintings

Without a tradition, the contemporary artist is bound to succumb to the pressures of economics and accept the necessity of choosing between the corporation and the academy. No matter which camp you ask, the rationale is the same: “The revolution was a lie”—as the hit song says. Neither option is a gamble because the outcome...
Daniel Lismore: 'Be Yourself, Everybody Else Is Already Taken'

Daniel Lismore: ‘Be Yourself, Everybody Else Is Already Taken’

Donald Trump: Art of a Demagogue

Donald Trump: Art of a Demagogue

Yves Klein at Tate Liverpool - Windows into Infinite Space

Yves Klein at Tate Liverpool – Windows into Infinite Space

Yves Klein is an artist who divided opinion in his time. His career spanned a brief period in the 1950s and 1960s before his premature death in 1963 from a heart attack aged just 34. A contemporary reviewer in The Times observed that his 1957 exhibition of blue monochromes at Gallery One in London, garnered ‘cries of...

Picasso Portraits at the National Portrait Gallery and Restaurant

Picasso Portraits at the National Portrait Gallery and Restaurant

Picasso’s portraits are some of the most well-known and instantly recognisable paintings of the 20th century. It’s also no secret that the Spanish artist spent his life trying to break down and re-establish the traditional values of painting, drawing, ceramics and sculpture – and his most famous resource with which to do it, was the...
Can Architecture Be Democratic: A Discussion at Athens Democracy Forum

Can Architecture Be Democratic: A Discussion at Athens Democracy Forum

If there are two great things that the Ancient Greeks gave us, it could be argued they are democracy, and architecture. They would certainly be the two things that are most instantly recognisable in the Western world during the 21st century as remaining remarkably similar to the Greek traditions laid down some 2,500 years ago....
Bang Said The Gun; Poetry for People Who Don't Like Poetry, On Tour

Bang Said The Gun; Poetry for People Who Don’t Like Poetry, On Tour

Bang Said The Gun strangely, yet successfully bills itself as a ‘poetry night for people who don’t like poetry’, and after a series of sell out shows at London’s Bloomsbury Theatre, it’s going on the road giving the people of Britain outside of the capital, a chance to witness its wonder. As the brain child of...

Australia’s Impressionists at the National Gallery

Australia’s Impressionists at the National Gallery

Australias’s Impressionists, ever heard of them? Yes, No? Well, I hadn’t. Not one of the 4 artists showcased in The National Gallery’s current exhibition even vaguely rung a bell. But I have to say, my loss, for their colour palette, subject matter and honest ingenuity is as intriguing and seductive as much of the work...
Hayden Kays - Artist in Residence for Cubitts Glasses

Hayden Kays – Artist in Residence for Cubitts Glasses

It seems there aren’t many things that can’t have an artist in residence programme attached to it nowadays. The latest to catch London’s eye however, proves that some can be a real success, even in the most extraordinary of places – perhaps a piece of blank fabric, carried by almost everyone in their pocket or...
Robert Rauschenberg at Tate Modern - Six Decades of Prolific Output

Robert Rauschenberg at Tate Modern – Six Decades of Prolific Output

Christmas has come early for Robert Rauschenberg fans. With a retrospective that spans six decades of relentlessly prolific output, the Tate has laid on the works with a rich, indulgent, and only slightly gluttonous, visual feast.   While his early monochromes offer up much food for thought, Rauschenberg is best known for his combine paintings,...
Thomas Ruff at David Zwirner Gallery – Post-Truth American Nostalgia

Thomas Ruff at David Zwirner Gallery – Post-Truth American Nostalgia

Post-truth has been declared ‘word of the year’ by the Oxford English dictionary. It’s not exactly clear what this means but in the wake of the ‘shock’ election which allowed Donald Trump to become America’s 45th president earlier this year, is it any wonder that people are questioning what they know and how they learn...

Shuby: From Street Art to Solo Gallery Show

Shuby: From Street Art to Solo Gallery Show

A half-peeled banana awash in pop colours with the subtext: ‘Your Banana Needs You’ is what first beckoned us into the world of Shuby at a patisserie in London’s Soho, but it was on the street that the artist’s now infamous bananas and rabbits first caught the eye of the art world ten years ago....
An Interview with Fabienne Verdier; Rhythms and Reflections at Waddington Custot

An Interview with Fabienne Verdier; Rhythms and Reflections at Waddington Custot

Fabienne Verdier is known for her fusion of Western and Eastern artistic values in her painting. Her practice is laced with theoretical concepts, as well as with the bodily physicality involved in creating such large-scale paintings. Fabienne, however, decided that she needed a new challenge to propel her work forward. Bruce Kovner, Chairman of the...
