“The par is three for every hole,” we were told matter-of-factly, “except number two, which is par seventeen, and number seven, which is par infinity.” I didn’t like the sound of that, but the potential embarrassment of swinging into the night was outweighed by the shame of giving up.

Land art (or Robert Sm... [more]

      Manmade: Notions of Landscape from the Lannan Collection features the work of nine artists whose work is an exploration of man and the landscape—not landscape in its most literal sense, but landscape as a construction of meanings and relationships that are always morphing, growing, decaying, and exploding. These various facets of landscape include the natural, the cultural, the social, and the political. The Lannan Foundation works related to landscape are never of the sort that is... [more]

A jostle for priorities appears to be going on at the ICA’s summer show, between public relevancy and the investigative capabilities of display. Whilst navigating its way around the curatorial dangers of showing avant-garde artwork in a free museum on The Mall, Poor. Old. Tired. Horse. seems to spread itself too thinly across the chronological range that’s been set out for itself. Nonetheless, like all essays whose hoard is slightly too broad, this exhibition touches upon and enco... [more]

  Having never been to the Royal Academy of Arts before I was alarmed at quite how unwelcoming the entrance and ticket room is; however, do persevere through the initial battle just to enter the gallery as what lies ahead is a real treat! It is immediately clear that this season of exhibitions and performances is a vivacious accumulation of important artists that are intelligently expanding the parameters of the contemporary art scene. GSK Contemporary, Part 2: Collision Course is boisterous, humorous,... [more]
