The four issue of the Midwest magazine founded and published by the Govett-Brewster in the 1990s are now available online for free here – a project lockdown allowed me to finish.

This week was a good time to return to Erin White’s coverage of curator Chaedria LaBouvier’s experience working with the Guggenheim.

Lucy Ives at Art in America on Aby Warburg’s Mnemosyne.

Erika Balsom and Barry Schwabsky each review Hal Forster’s What Comes After Farce? Art and Criticism at a Time of Debacle.

New Publication – Caleb Kelly’s ‘Tangible/Intangible: The Sound of Sculpture’

The Govett-Brewster Art Gallery’s new issue in the STATEMENTS essay series is now available for purchase at the Gallery shop. Commissioned in association with the Govett-Brewster’s 2018 exhibition ‘Sensory Agents‘ and edited by exhibition curator Sarah Wall, Tangible/Intangible: The Sound of Sculpture looks to sculptural practices that explicitly employ sound as a medium.

Scholar and curator Caleb Kelly explores the development of sound arts through sculptural form and installation practices. The practices that he investigates uncover a changing understanding of the nature of sculpture itself and a new perspective of the importance of the senses in our appreciation of the arts. Tangible/Intangible includes examples from a diverse range of international artists such as Laurie Anderson, Vicky Browne, Eric Demetriou Rafael Ferrer, Rebecca Horn, Paul Kos, Len Lye, Ross Manning, Max Neuhaus, Jean Tinguely, Takis and Pia van Gelder.
