Modern Art Oxford at 50

REVIEW: 'Kaleidoscope: The Vanished Reality', currently showing at Modern Art Oxford Louise Lawler, Still Life (candle) (traced), 2003 / 2013. Printed vinyl mounted to wall, 304 x 251 cm A matte grey colour, popular amongst art schools as floor paint, saturates the Victorian brick-work of Modern Art Oxford’s Pembroke Street façade. The impact of its ugly exterior, a hybrid of a Shoreditch bistro and an Urban Outfitters, is softened by the familiarity of its “contemporary art institute” interior. Its clean white walls, a fantastically average café and a charming (expensive) shop indiscreetly positioned by the exit, reassures us of the building’s elevated societal status… Right?

Interview with Alexandra Gerstein, curator of ‘Rodin and Dance: the Essence of Movement’

Dr Alexandra Gerstein, curator of Sculpture and Decorative Arts at the Courtauld Gallery, has curated the new exhibition ‘Rodin and Dance: the Essence of Movement’ in collaboration with the Musée Rodin, Paris.

Franquet has spent most of her life immersed in Mediterranean and Middle Eastern cultures, both of which have influenced and characterised her artistic voice in ‘reMembering’ through the layering of words from ancient myths and contemporary

Eyes on the Prizes

Should you care about literary prizes? Autumn is the most exciting time of year for books. Hundreds of long-awaited titles are released in anticipation of Christmas gift sales and end-of-year awards and wrap-ups. As readers we can feel spoiled for choice and perhaps even overwhelmed by the assortment on offer, and it can be hard to know where on earth to start. This is where literary prizes come in. Phew! Thank goodness a group of judges have gathered together to decide what I should read! What would we do without them? Understandably, some readers hate the dictatorial judgements of value placed upon certain books and prefer to take the road less travelled and choose their reading material t
