A couple of updates: I’ve been writing about various art historical movements for the wonderful NYC-based non profit organisation The Art Story for a few years now, and thought a little touting was in order! They’ve just published my most recent piece on the artists of the Bloomsbury Group. I’ve also researched and written pages on the Japanese Gutai, the COBRA Group and the Viennese Actionists, among others.
In other news, I’m also going to be in conversation with New York based artist Jack Henry for a forthcoming catalogue published by German project space, ProjekTraum. Watch this space for more…
I’ll be selecting the shortlist for the most excellent Stuart Croft Foundation Special Project Awards. Writers, curators, academics, get yee to the website and apply, pronto.
Come and listen to me bang on about rave and anxiety in an age of precarity. There’ll be Mark Fisher, a bit of Kierkegaard and a splosh of the Young Ones…
I’ve had a lovely time working with NYC-based painter Dan Schein and his Copenhagen gallery Tom Christoffersen Gallery on the new text for his forthcoming show – Naked Pictures. Looking forward to heading to Denmark for the opening in a week.
I’ve just been confirmed as the writer in residence for Transition Gallery’s Speedway project in early 2017. I’ll be producing a series of responses that reflect on the philosophy of leisure, the psychogeographic state of this area of Hackney and human ingenuity in the face of rapid change. More information to follow…
I’m pleased to announce that the book I wrote the introductory essay to – Dominic Myatt’s book of drawings: “No Kissing” – has just been published by MNK Press and launched at the Tokyo Art Book Fair.
