  • Franz West Exhibition
    Franz West ExhibitionVisitors to this major retrospective were be able to handle replicas of his Passstücke (Adaptives) – papier-mâché pieces made to be picked up and moved. They were a turning point in the relationship between art and its audience. He also created playful sculptures incorporating objects from everyday life such as a hat, a broom, or even a whisky bottle. In his final years he produced large, brightly coloured and absurd sculptures both for galleries and public spaces.

  • Tate Collective BHM Commission
    Tate Collective BHM CommissionBlack History Month can be difficult for black creatives.

This is why Lubaina Himid’s “The Carrot Piece” stood out to me. In the face of institutional attempts to “integrate” black womxn artists – rife with tokenism, false promises and pressure to conform – Himid reminds us we already have what we need. My response foc
