Picasso’s influence upon Modern art is something that goes without saying, the impact of his career not only visible throughout the Modern period, but continuing well into the Contemporary. Tate Britain’s current exhibition Picasso and Modern British Art is a carefully considered look at how the late artist came to shape British art, presenting works by the artist shown and collected in Britain, interwoven with studies on how he came to influence the work of seven of the country’s best-known and cele...

Modern British Sculpture at the RA is a show that has been discussed heavily in the weekend press from the point of view of who is included and who is left out. Hepworth, we are told is hot, and Kapoor and Gormley are decidedly not. From the off we are left in no doubt about the overarching importance of Barbara Hepworth and Henry Moore in the story of British sculpture. When one first enters the exhibition one could be forgiven for thinking you were in a gallery at the  British Museu... [more]

Posted 2/1/11

A quiet exhibition, “Advancing Abstraction” at the Baltimore Museum of Art handily fills two, small galleries at the back with about twenty tabletop-to-medium-sized sculptures alongside a few related prints and sketches. Machine-age works in iron, copper, bronze, metal, steel, and wood from the museum’s collection divulge bit balletics, forest flute trills: Naum Gabo lovingly rubs a Plexiglas curve that frames an oval alabaster and intricately wraps steel spring wire; Ibram Lassaw torch-drips cop...

The works on show at the Camden Arts Centre are the latest in their series of artist-selected shows at the North London gallery. Somewhere between a curatorial exercise and art-by-proxy, these shows have revealed both the personal and vicarious aspects of artist curation/selection. The work selected by Simon Starling comprises works by 30 artists and designers, revisiting the history of the Camden Art Centres programmes over the last 50 years. By-and-large the works occupy the positio... [more]

You know what a “Moore” looks like, I know what a Moore looks like and they are so ubiquitous that I wouldn’t be surprised if my cat knows what a Moore looks like. They occupy every courtyard, park, lobby and museum in the western world and are the very epitome of what it is to be “sculptural” and, unfortunately, what it is to be conservative in art. Yet for all that we are familiar with the works in question we often miss their point. The survey show at the Tate Britain gets behind... [more]

Low Life Slow Life, an exhibit curated by Paul McCarthy at the CCA Wattis Institute of Contemporary Arts is billed as showcasing “a wide range of artists and artworks related to memories from McCarthy’s career.” In this sense, the result is very true to its word. Vitrines filled with ephemera from McCarthy’s own collection are scattered throughout the Wattis’s downstairs gallery. Included are record albums by Karlheinz Stockhausen, coffee-table size books on Happeni... [more]
