    Art Shot - Teeth

    Art Shot - Teeth

    teeth teeth teeth teeth teeth teeth teeth

    A quick little live review for you today - I went to see Teeth, at the Wellcome Collection. Not for the faint of heart or the dentally anxious, this exhibition explores the darkest cavities of the history of dentistry. It’s sweet in places and rotten in others, with some very tongue in cheek curation. I really dropped the veneer of professionalism here, but I think you’ll want to sink your teeth in and chew on the content, though it is a little hard to swallow in places.

    I’m sorry.

    Teeth is running at the Wellcome collection until 16.09.18 - more information at https://wellcomecollection.org/

    Art Shots - Dorothea Lange, Vanessa Winship and Killed Negatives

    Art Shots - Dorothea Lange, Vanessa Winship and Killed Negatives

    Two exhibitions for the price of one, and a free display! I went to Dorothea Lange: Politics of Seeing and Vanessa Winship: And Time Folds at the Barbican, and Killed Negatives: Unseen Images of 1930s America at the Whitechapel Gallery. So much documentary photography. All highly recommended.

    Lange and Winship run until 2.09.2018 - information and tickets (£13.50/£9 students) here https://www.barbican.org.uk/whats-on/2018/event/dorothea-lange-vanessa-winship

    Killed Negatives (admission free) runs until 26.08.2018 http://www.whitechapelgallery.org/exhibitions/killed-negatives-unseen-images-1930s-america/

    James Cook: The Voyages at the British Library

    James Cook: The Voyages at the British Library

    I recorded this review live in the British Library's exhibition commemorating 250 years since the first Cook voyage. It's a little different to my usual format - you can treat it as an extra long review or use it as an audioguide.

    James Cook: The Voyages runs until 28.8.2018. Admission is £14 or £7 with an Art Pass. More information on the exhibition at https://www.bl.uk/events/james-cook-the-voyages

    The article on Tupaia's map I mentioned is here https://www.stuff.co.nz/national/101871481/legendary-map-of-pacific-by-james-cooks-tahitian-navigator-tupaia-finally-unlocked?rm=m

    Art Shots - Lee Bul

    Art Shots - Lee Bul

    I said I was doing a ton of podcasts this month AND I MEANT IT. Throughout August I'll be releasing short reviews of the major summer "blockbuster" exhibitions, called Art Shots.

    I really loved Lee Bul's Hayward Gallery retrospective! The exhibition runs until 19.8.2018, and tickets are £13 or £6.50 with an Art Pass. This episode also has a return to the background noise plague, sorry.

    Art Shots - All Too Human

    Art Shots - All Too Human

    Throughout August I'll be releasing short reviews of the major summer "blockbuster" exhibitions, called Art Shots.

    I can't recommend All Too Human: Bacon, Freud and a Century of Painting Life, at Tate Britain. The show itself was underwhelming and tickets were £19.50 or £18.50 for concessions, but if you're a bigger fan of Freud or Bacon than me you might enjoy it more...

Real Gem

I'm a bit of a newbie to art and art history, so this podcast has been great not only in that it's been very entertaining but also that it's very accessible for those with not a great deal of knowledge about art. I often go into these episodes with little to no knowledge of the subject and still manage to enjoy them and learn something in the process! Hoping to finally make it to the 'Uncomfortable Art Tour' at some point as well.

Great art nerdery!

A really smart and funny host to guide you through the exhibitions. Great even if you don't plan to go as you pick up so much along the way. Friendly to new comers whilst still challenging and bringing a fresh perpective on topics I already know about.
