The Art Channel visits an exhibition investigating the ‘Uncanny’ in Art Photography. We look at the sensation of both strangeness and familiarity in an image. Focussing on individual works by Sonja Braas, David Claerbout, Julie Monaco and Joel Sternfeld, the film explores how ‘magical surfaces’ arise from photographs which are animated, invented and staged.
The latest film on The Art Channel is online where we review Andy Warhol from The Hall Collection at The Ashmolean, Oxford University’s museum. To subscribe to The Art Channel, visit www.youtube.com/theartchannel1
My new film for The Art Channel is now online. Grace Adam and I visit the exciting exhibition ‘Alexander Calder: Performing Sculpture’ at Tate Modern to learn how he developed the ‘Mobile’ and moving abstract sculpture.
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.
