David Hockney at Tate Britain on The Art Channel

The Art Channel walks through an exhibition at Tate Britain showing 60 years of art by David Hockney. From his earliest experiments in painting, Hockney develops a naturalism that explores the experience of looking at the world. This first film analyses six key paintings from the first half of his career. Ever curious and observant, Hockney is constantly testing the possibility of art to represent and understand friends, places, objects and architecture. We look closely at several key works to explain Hockney’s legacy and achievement.

Louise Bourgeois and Yayoi Kusama on The Art Channel

The Art Channel visits a curated exhibition of artworks by Louise Bourgeois and Yayoi Kusama addressing the subconscious, memory and trauma. Two of the most significant female artists of the past 75 years, Bourgeois and Kusama battled for recognition and opportunities for artistic self-expression. Experiencing troubled childhoods and family strife, each artist made art to address their fears and to find equilibrium in adult life.

Do Ho Suh at Victoria Miro on The Art Channel

From architectural installations to works on paper, Do Ho Suh explores memory, travel and identity in an exhibition titled ‘Passage/s’. Using brightly coloured and transparent polyester mesh hung on steel frames, Do Ho Suh erects a series of linking architectural ‘hubs’ which resemble disregarded domestic spaces like hallways and entrances. He is also showing new ‘drawings’ produced by melting gelatine models into absorbent paper.

teamLab at Pace Gallery on The Art Channel

Our latest Art Channel film explores the extraordinary immersive and interactive films produced by teamLab, a collective inspired by ‘pre-modern’ Japanese painting and contemporary popular Japanese culture such as anime and video gaming. teamLab’s sophisticated mastery of programming and design produces mesmerising spectacles in virtual reality. Their work anticipates a whole new frontier for art and new media.

Robert Rauschenberg on The Art Channel

My new film for The Art Channel visits an exhibition at Tate Modern by one of the most influential artists of the 20th Century, Robert Rauschenberg.

Working across printing, photography, painting, assemblage, technology and performance, Robert Rauschenberg is one of the most influential American artists of the 20th Century. He wanted to act in the gap between art and life, experimenting with the nature of art and linking historic Dada artists like Marcel Duchamp and Kurt Schwitters with contemporary art. The exhibition runs at Tate Modern before transferring to the Museum Of Modern Art in New York City.
