The Hecklers (New Art Gallery Walsall)

This Is Tomorrow review by Anneka French

See full text on This is Tomorrow

Percy Bysshe Shelley's epic poem 'The Masque of Anarchy' (1819), an outraged contemporaneous response to the Peterloo Massacre of non-violent social reform protesters, was last month vividly performed for the Manchester International Festival. At almost the same time opened 'The Hecklers’, an exhibition of recent British art practice with an overt political tone.…

Article on Artylist

Art institutions in Britain’s capital city like to jockey for the position of being the epicentre of creativity in London. It seems every exhibition boasts the freshest, newest, most relevant talent to ever show on the London art scene. It’s no surprise then that Whitechapel Gallery suggests their open-submission exhibition called The London Open is a barometer for the…

All of a Titter at the Tate (Rude Britannia, Tate Britain)

Review by Andrew Graham-Dixon 2010

Read this at the Telegraph

Tate Britain's new exhibition, Rude Britannia, takes White's remarks as a starting point for its own explorations. For curator Martin Myrone, comedy and art alike are essentially inexplicable: both are 'beyond words, sense, analysis, a matter of instinct… rather than intellect'...

Peristromo Dolorosa

Chris Hammond, Director, MOT International, London

‘On my return from travel, I was roused to a consideration of subjects which I had previously never dreamed of, or thought about, connected with self; and I had such ideas that, had I spoken of them openly, I must, if answered in the world’s fashion, have been told I was unreasonable.

Peristroma Dolorosa (MOT International)

By Olly Beck. Published in 2004

One has only to take a brief trip to present day Jerusalem to realize the absurdity and wonderful lunacy of religion.

It was a kind of madness the psychologists like to call manic depression (oscillating moods of extreme ups and downs). I’m not so overly happy with that kind of diagnosis: a label that condemns you to a…
