William Kentridge at Marian Goodman Gallery, London.

More Sweetly Play The Dance is an eight screen film installation made using performers and drawings that borrows from the Medieval tradition of the Danse Macabre. William Kentridge creates an African funereal procession that celebrates life while warding off death. It echoes the flight of refugees seeking sanctuary today. Elsewhere in the show, Kentridge has made large ink wash paintings that blends together Chinese Marxist propaganda, traditional Chinese art and Manet’s last flower paintings.

Agnes Martin at Tate Modern is visited by The Art Channel

The Art Channel brings you a film of the Agnes Martin exhibition at Tate Modern including analysis of several major works. Martin was a  painter who retreated from New York City to a solitary life in New Mexico in the 1970s, where she acquired a mythic status. But what do her abstract paintings communicate and how might we understand them? Grace Adam and Joshua White lead you through this significant exhibition.

Theaster Gates at White Cube for The Art Channel

Titled ‘Freedom of Assembly’, Theaster Gates recently showed a new body of work illustrating his interest in labour, community and art historical traditions. The exhibition showed sculptures made from found materials and ‘paintings’ constructed as if building roofs. The Art Channel investigates the show and looks in detail at Gates’ themes and materials.
