The White Review28/02/2013
The White Review is a quarterly arts journal published in print and online. The journal was conceived as an arts and literary journal specializing in artistically or educationally meritorious works of new or emerging artists and writers. Its aim is the promotion of the arts and literature and of advancing education in arts and literature. It takes its name and a degree of inspiration from La Revue Blanche, a Parisian magazine which ran from 1889 to 1903.
How To Tell The Future From The Past @ Haunch of Venison28/02/2013
How To Tell The Future From The Past is a group show currently on display at Haunch of Venison in New York, which looks at the role of progress and the idea that the human animal is resourceful and sophisticated but fundamentally incapable of bettering itself, across painting sculpture and video. Australian artist Patricia Piccinini's incredibly lifelike sculpture suggests the unwieldy relationship between what we are and what we want and explores the fears of modern society, including age.
Nina Fowler: It's Just My Funny Way of Dancing28/02/2013
Showcasing eight large scale black chalk drawings depicting two females figures embroiled in a lively brawl, Nina Fowler's dynamic show It's Just My Funny Way of Dancing is set to debut this month at 18 Hewett Street, London. The images capture split second stills from the 1939 film Destry Rides Again, featuring the enamoring Marlene Dietrich. Concurrently portraying great movement with immaculate stillness, the pieces feature intricate detail and illustrate Fowler’s remarkable draftsmanship skills.

A retrospective exhibition conceived by the Vitra Design Museum (Weil am Rhein, Germany) and presented at the Cité de l'architecture & heritage, is the first to address the work of Marcel Breuer giving equal importance to both his disciplines - design and architecture - and each of his creative periods, to better show links between the two and highlight consistency.
Peter Sutherland Interview
Photographers in this day and age are a dime a dozen. Anyone with a decent size budget can buy into the idea of being a photographer, but not many actually have the skill to capture beautiful imagery such as New York based photographer, Peter Sutherland. Not only is his work best described as such, it is safe to say that his photos are some of the most authentic depictions of showcasing life through a lens, as he applies traditional documenting techniques to capture the hidden beauty in ordinary objects of everyday life.

Jay Paavonpera Interview
New York artist Jay Paavonpera is interested in exploring contemporary industrial dialogue; namely, he finds objects and appropriates them in a studio/gallery setting, in the process, changing their story, context and meaning. Working with a decidedly minimal aesthetic, Jay builds, redefines and paints from his Brooklyn studio, creating pieces that relate to their environment in unique ways as well as posing questions of our own relationships with our surroundings. Intrigued, we caught up with Jay for a quick chat about his work and a poke around his studio.
The Gourmand Exhibition at 18 Hewett Street13/02/2013

As the first exhibition of its kind from the culinary/culture journal it's a unique way for them to show their approach to curating all things food.
Sam Moyer Studio Visit
