Grace Adam and Joshua White explore Luc Tuyman’s latest exhibition of paintings at the David Zwirner gallery in London. Titled, ‘The Shore’, the series continues Tuyman’s interest in painting found images, fragments copied and adapted from cinema, the news and even wallpaper from an Edinburgh hotel.

‘Marlene Dumas: The Image As Burden’ at Tate Modern

The review takes place on The Art Channel on YouTube. Each week I post reviews of Modern and Contemporary Art exhibitions in discussion with Grace Adam.

Tate Modern is now showing a large range of work made by the South African and Dutch painter, Marlene Dumas. Often using a technique that disperses diluted ink and paint, her paintings are created by using found photographs rather than life models, producing images rich in mood and psychological insight.

The exhibition runs until May 10, 2015.

The Institute of Sexology

The Institute of Sexology at the Wellcome Collection reviewed on The Art Channel with Grace Adam.

Exhibiting artworks alongside scientific artefacts, The Institute of Sexology explores how human sexuality became a field of scientific research. It shows how several brave individuals used pioneering research to end the stigma, repression and ignorance surrounding the body and sex. In the exhibition, historic objects and records illustrate the achievements of Sigmund Freud, Marie Stopes and Alfred Kinsey among others, interspersed with artworks that take a more imaginative interpretation. The exhibition runs until September 2015 at London’s Wellcome Collection¬†on Euston Road.
