New York City has always been a draw for an eclectic mix of artists working across the visual and performing arts. Its underground pubs and speakeasies, expansive loft spaces, museums, sidewalks, and streets have served as creative inspiration for all kinds of movements including jazz, expressionism, Fluxus, hip-hop, and punk. Despite all of that creative energy and expression, the city has also been a beautiful breeding ground for social and cultural dissonance. While New York may not be known... [more]

          'A means toward the total liberation of the mind and everything that resembles it.' Declaration of The Bureau of Surrealist Research, 27th January 1925. The way we live, the curious blurring of real circumstances with the flux of an internal world: of longings, dreams, and secret chambers. These fascinating lines of enquiry form the exhibition at Barbican Art Gallery, 'The Surrealist House' , curated by Jane Alison, Alona Pardo, Eleanor Nairne and Léa-Catherine Szacke. The... [more]

    I checked the new group show at Fred [London], Collage, London/New York, as it was being installed. There were some wonderful things spread about the gallery waiting to be hung. The opportunity to stage a major exhibition of collages arose from contact with Pavel Zubok Gallery, New York; a specialist collector with pieces ranging from Marcel Duchamp to Joseph Cornell (magician of mysterious and intricate cabinets). The survey includes over seventy artists drawn across generations from... [more]
