Theory, fiction, criticism, confession?
Chris Kraus’ novels and art essays freely mix genres, moving between high and low culture. At this event, she reads from her novels and cultural criticism, and discusses strategies for art writers working today.
Supported by the David Lean Foundation
A survey of work by Cornelia Parker RA is the opening show at Manchester’s newly renovated Whitworth Gallery – featuring a room hung with the negatives from a poppy factory.
On the eve of a major exhibition London dedicated to Sir Joshua Reynolds, we delve into the RA’s archive to learn more about the Academy’s founding president.
We went behind the scenes in the RA Schools to follow the progress of second-year students putting together their interim exhibition.
Professor Germaine Greer, Dr Tom Shakespeare, Grayson Perry RA and Professor Mary Beard discuss the role art plays in creating and communicating body image.
