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]

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...

All the world's a stage, And all the men and women merely players; So wrote William Shakespeare 400 years ago. Today the evidence of participation is the photograph and the current exhibition at Tate Modern ‘Exposed: Voyeurism, Surveillance and the Camera’ documents that participation, both voluntary and involuntary. From staged photographs such as Marilyn Monroe’s billowing skirt and the fashion shots of Helmut Newton to the vernacular of the streets in works by such luminaries as Henri Cartier-Bresson and Garry...
