As one of the more visible providers of a critique of the centre/periphery model of cultural development in the early 2000’s, a new exhibition by curator Hou Hanru is highly anticipated. ZiZhiQu: Autonomous Regions at the Times Museum in Guangzhou can perhaps be seen to develop this model as it applies to the cultural self-formation of individuals and groups, placing that development in contrast to a globalised institutionalisation of culture. Autonomy, then, moves across all scales in its realisat... [more]

Abraham Cruzvillegas’s exhibition at Modern Art Oxford comprises a new body of work made in specific response to the history of Oxford. It draws upon his long-standing project Autoconstruccion, a body of work inspired by the improvisatory architecture of his childhood home in Pedregales de Coyoacán, Mexico City. Cruzvillegas is a key figure in the ‘new wave’ generation of Mexican artists who emerged in the 1990s under the tutelage of Gabriel Orozco. Here and throughout his career, he draws a par... [more]

Everyone loves Calder, but critics underrate him, says Lynne Warren, the long-time Museum of Contemporary Art (MCA) curator. Also, she adds, Cald... [more]
