Martin Honert: Bedtime Story  
by
Martin Honert at Bloomberg Space April 8th, 2010 - May 15th, 2010
Posted 4/25/10

Martin Honert, Schlafsaal, 2009. Martin Honert is number 21 of the Bloomberg Space ongoing Comma project, launched in 2009 with the intention of showcasing thirty of the most outstanding and established international artists. The programme is curated by Sacha Craddock (the chair of New Contemporaries and an ex Turner Prize judge) and Vanessa Desclaux (a critic who has writes for a number of publications, but you may recognise her from A:N). It is fast paced, with each show lasting only a few... [more]

Plplplp Art Review: Aviary  
by
Céleste Boursier-Mougenot at Barbican Art Gallery February 27th, 2010 - May 23rd, 2010
Posted 4/19/10

In a gloriously original and creative move, Céleste Boursier-Mougenot’s first UK solo exhibition taps into an audiovisual buffet of nature.  At the Barbican’s ‘Aviary’, visitors find themselves unwitting participants in a dance of nature as birds ‘perform’ in an art installation. A dark space opens into a cheerful seaside promenade, complete with wooden decking and islands of sand and grass.  Curiously, Les Paul guitars, bass, and cymbals rest in these spaces.  As your senses adjust to the surro...

by
Anna Fox, Zoe Leonard, Sophie Ristelhueber, Donovan Wylie at The Photographers' Gallery February 12th, 2010 - May 2nd, 2010
Posted 3/23/10

The “surgically precise images” of Sophie Ristelhueber has won her the 2010 Deutsche Börse Photography Prize.  In a ceremony on 17 March, film director Terry Gilliam presented her with the £30,000 award at The Photographers’ Gallery.  Hailed for “push[ing] the boundaries of the photographic medium”, her 2009 retrospective exhibition in Paris earned the nomination. The annual European competition, now in its 14th year, draws international entries from contemporary photographers.  Considered one of th... [more]

Anish Kapoor at Royal Academy of Arts September 26th, 2009 - December 11th, 2009
Posted 9/2/12

As the first living artist to land a solo show at the Royal Academy, Anish Kapoor’s self-appellated show is an incredibly daring, sensory, and truly contemporary display of the artist’s oeuvre and sculpture today. Whilst you endure the overwhelming queues outside, the jagged tower of shiny metal spheres, Tall tree and the eye - a new sculpture provided for the exhibit - whets your appetite for the ensuing unctuous crimson wax and grey sludge and slither, spliced with wide concave and convex surfaces...

Amanda Language and Surfaces @ Fold Gallery's Unrelated Oxides

Natasha Bailey, Joshua Kim, Susan Kordalewski, Wendy Mclean, Iain Sharpe, Dan Shaw-Town, Liesel Thomas, Amanda Wasielewski at FOLD Gallery | London August 7th, 2009 - August 23rd, 2009
Posted 8/10/09

The month of August for London is the holiday month for London in regards to art. Not so in Hackney.  A group exhibition at Fold Gallery this month curated by three artists that are also in the exhibition. As far as summer exhibitions go this is set up for a bland, over-hanged space with absolutely no room was made for cohesion. It was a surprise that Unrelated Oxides exemplified a focus in a group exhibition. The premise of the exhibition is a correlation with a quote, by Sebastian Faulks, that d... [more]

ROYAL COLLEGE OF ART DEGREE SHOW OVERVIEW  
by
6/8/09 Posted 6/8/09

ROYAL COLLEGE OF ART OVERVIEW   I caught the tail end of the Royal College of Art MA Fine Art and Sculpture degree shows this weekend. When I first found out that the sculpture department separated from the main campus a few years ago the first thing I thought was, what a shame. This really didn’t show a promotion of cross-departmental mixing that other fine art schools seem to.  After seeing both the RCA main campus show at South Kensington and the RCA Sculpture show in Battersea I now know...

5 Rodchenko and Popova defining constructivism  
by
Liubov Popova, Aleksandr Rodchenko at Tate Modern February 12th, 2009 - May 17th, 2009
Posted 4/14/09

  Constructivism is deconstucted at the Tate Modern until 17 May. This major movement emerging in Russia after the russian revolution has questionned deeply and under several perspectives art and its application in everyday life. At the Tate, works and ideas of two major figures of the constructivism are shown. The photographer, film expert, advertiser, artist, Alexander Rodchenko and the female painter-theatre maker and textile and graphic designer Liubov popova were equally explosing the poss... [more]

ISA GENZKEN 'OPEN SESAME' at The Whitechapel Art Gallery 5th April - 21st June 2009 Admission free A turbulent new voice of  German sculpture launches the brilliantly expanded Whitechapel Art Gallery, re-opened to an eager audience in April. It's a kind of split identity exhibition that assaults the senses and kicks into the imagination. A graduate of the Berlin and Dusseldorf academies in the 1970s Genzken's sculptural playground bears the hallmark of Professor Joseph Beuys, in her direct ac... [more]
