While exploring the School’s peculiarities, the exhibition at the Barbican, perhaps inadvertently, encourages the visitor to frame things in a wider cultural and political context.

Unlike clay, stone, marble, and ivory, bronze is able to replicate the biomechanics of the musculoskeletal system. This simple fact is the rationale behind Royal Academy's exhibition: how humans almost the world over have crafted sculptures from this curious alloy of copper to wonderful effect.

The anxiety of context continues to vex many curators and art historians: How can we properly consider objects within their historical setting while allowing for the very real presence they have in the present day?

Stickley is widely regarded as the central figure in the American arts and crafts movement. Considering his importance, it is odd that no monographic exhibition of his work should appear until this show.
If you are interested in reviewing an exhibition, please contact us.
Exhibition reviews, like articles, must be analytical and interpretive rather than essentially descriptive. (They should not merely summarize the contents, but should include a brief indication of what the exhibit is about.) Reviewers are also expected to add their own perspective based on their individual specialties, when this is relevant to the work under review. Judgments must be substantiated with objective evidence and clear reasoning in order to give the original work a balanced and fair assessment.
A brief sampling--in no particular order--of some of the upcoming or current exhibitions we would like to see reviewed (this listing will be updated regularly and we are open to contributor suggestions):
