GIFs Are Offish Legit says Saatchi (and it’s pronounced “Motion Photography”)  
by
4/18/14 Posted 4/18/14

Saatchi Art, the Saatchi Gallery, and Google+ just announced the winners of their first-ever Motion Photography Prize. “Motion Photography” is apparently the high-brow version of a GIF, those low-brow, low-tech repeating videos long enjoyed by Tumblr gurls and basement dwelling neckbeards, and more recently, everyone. They've also already been kind of a thing in the art world—the Pittsburgh collective VIA launched its intense 2014 T.GIF tournament last month and we hosted our own... [more]

20130312153801-fm_ii_painting_700_3_mar_2013 Gretta Sarfaty’s Modes of Past  
by
Gretta Sarfaty at Sartorial Contemporary Art March 19th, 2013 - April 5th, 2013
Posted 4/11/13

Gretta Sarfaty gained international recognition in the late 70’ as a body-art and performance artist. Beginning with a traditional medium of painting, she early started to experiment with new media and performance. Even if her art has remained authentically ingenious over the years, the ways of her expression have changed, reflecting the evolution of digital technology. She has never been dogmatic: even when expressing a strongly feminist approach, she moves smoothly around multitude of questi... [more]

Bad Behaviour show review Oct 2012   On the walk from Brixton train station to visit Bad Behaviour, past clothes stalls, car mechanics and food wholesalers which operate underneath the arches – including the wonderfully named ‘Just Yams etc.’ – I wondered how this group exhibition was going to position itself.  Would it attempt to engage with the context of Brixton, its independent spirit and history of rebellion and rioting  – or was the ‘bad behaviour’ of the title indicative of more gener...

20120207085639-2 The Human Endeavour: 'Bauhaus: Art as Life' at the Barbican  
by
Anni Albers, Josef Albers, Marianne Brandt, Marcel Breuer, Walter Gropius, Johannes Itten, Wassily Kandinsky, Paul Klee, Hannes Meyer, László Moholy-Nagy, Gunta Stölzl, Ludwig Mies van der Rohe at Barbican Art Gallery May 3rd, 2012 - August 12th, 2012
Posted 8/19/12

All too frequently the presentation and packaging of the Bauhaus to audiences has been to focus on the leading male quartet of Gropius, van der Rohe, Breuer and Meyer as the pioneers of a cold, precise, machine-driven sect whose tubular chairs and avant-garde works became stereotypical hallmarks of a ‘bourgeois’ European formalism. Barbican’s ‘Bauhaus: Art as life’ aims to inject the forgotten human endeavour and encounters that took place at Weimar and Dessau, back at the centre of the school’s... [more]

(Image: Anya Gallaccio, forever changes, 2011 Bronze 100 x 70 x 47 cm (at widest points); © Annet Gelink Gallery) Anya Gallaccio (b. 1963, Paisley, Scotland) Anya Gallaccio 's highway is based on a transatlantic journey; one boulder made the far crossing from the South-West of the United States to Amsterdam. The stone sits in three different manifestations on the gallery floor. Gallaccio alienated it from its original environment - the ancient deserts of California - and transformed it into... [more]

Posted 1/25/11

  This year’s ‘potlatch’ was a neat and tidy affair.  The giving was orderly.  In the understated chapel of All Hallows on the Wall, City of London Parish, we were invited to select from 24 framed pictures taken down from the metaphysical vertices of the gallery walls, laid out in a grid on temporary trestles and tabulated like fish on the dock.  Each picture was a gift.  Last year’s potlatch – by all accounts – was more fractious.   Then there had been paintings as well as drawings, seemingly of grea...

Self Harm Averted

The numbers of the anti-conceptual art group, The Stuckists, swelled for their annual protest on the steps of Tate Britain at this year's Turner Prize exhibition opening by press photographers refusing to ply their trade. The photographers were boycotting the exhibition in response to Tate Britain’s insistence that they sign a form that prohibited them from publishing any images or words which would "result in any adverse publicity" for the Tate. As The Times photographer Richard Pohle said “We... [more]

Flowers gallery in the heart of the west end currently has not one but two intriguing  exhibitions on at the moment. When other galleries are slowing down in the summer months or just showing works they have in stock flowers gallery is coming alive (quite literally with some of the pieces of animated works).                 On the ground level is a show that any lover of photography should see. It has iconic and resonating images from Edward Burtynsky, Nadav Kander & Robert Polidori. The paint... [more]

Posted 7/26/10

A fascinating and exciting show with eight new artists exploring 'what's unsaid.' Avoiding shock and obvious political messaging, each artist respects the mute quality of art, it's form of speechlessness and silent writing to probe the limits of the sayable - whether in terms of language and indentity, abstract qualities of fate or time, or the language of pencil, paper, paint, neon and latex. Materials are to the fore here (and perhaps at time an echo of arte povera) and the curators are to be... [more]
