My Journalism Part 1 – Spring/Summer 2011

Online Pieces

Here are the links to my online articles during this period.

I write regularly for the website Artface, which promotes art galleries and exhibitions around Britain. I also instigated, and co-ordinate, our Twitter presence (@ArtfaceUK).

Group Show: Anatomy.

Run by the nomadic Antlers Gallery in Bristol, this was a sensitive and intelligent look at the theme of anatomy.

Tracey Emin: Love Is What You Want (retrospective).

A no-holds-barred look at what Emin has produced in her career to date, from short films to prints.

Haegue Yang, with Felix Gonzalez-Torres: The Sea Wall.

The Arnolfini promised great things, but I found much of it inaccessible and akin to the artist tricking the viewer. Yang’s textual art was much more mature, but often sidelined here.

Toulouse-Lautrec and Jane Avril: Beyond the Moulin Rouge.

Examining the relationship between the artist and his muse, as well as his other dance hall portraits, this was a sumptuous show at the Courtauld Gallery.

Bruce Davidson Photography.

A fantastic photography exhibition, held at the Chris Beetles Fine Photographs Gallery in Central London.

Joan Miro: The Ladder of Escape.

An eye-opening retrospective, held at the Tate Modern in Central London.

I have also begun writing for the website This Affected Youth, which is a magazine-style site reflecting the interests and concerns of today’s young people, including politics, sport, film and social issues.

I explored the problems surrounding the 2012 Olympics, including bizarre ticketing ballots, unpopular logos and mascots, and the ever-unpredictable Boris Johnson.

Print Journalism

I wrote two articles for the fourth issue of Pigeons and Peacocks Magazine; one was a trend piece based on my fashion predictions aged ten, and the other was an examination of cosmetic surgery and the anti-ageing beauty industry.

The first article, ‘The Next Big Thing (According to a Ten-Year-Old)’, can be found by clicking here.

The second article, ‘The Next Wrinklebuster’, can be found by clicking here.
