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.
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.
