Bob Chaundy

For the past three weeks, the 28-year-old sculptor has turned London's William Benington Gallery into her own studio with all the accoutrements required for creating high-spec ceramic sculptures - bags of industrial raw materials, assorted moulds, tools and equipment.

The couple's marriage was known as a "golden age" for both sides in the Virginian region. It brought eight years of peace before a second war from 1622 to 26. Although the English reported that she wished to remain with her new people, as a diplomatic figure for both sides, Rebecca still expressed concerned for the security of those she had left behind.

Art Can Be a Gateway to Science

Tom Morton-Smith

Plays such as Michael Frayn's Copenhagen, my Oppenheimer or Complicité's A Disappearing Number are not truth - they are not documentary. What they do is introduce a scientific figure or a scientific idea, tether it to the structures of story and drama, and introduce an otherwise unknown aspect of history to a new audience.

Four salient reasons to resist the rise of trigger warnings in higher education and general usage.

A multi-disciplinary, serial professional (dentist, lawyer, coroner, judge) Bernard Pearl's life is currently restricted to a hospital bed where he has more than enough time to dwell on the moment. Around him people are whiling away their day staring at screens or into mid air. Not my dad.

Duchamp and His Toilet

Ioan Marc Jones | Posted 29.05.2015 | UK Entertainment
Ioan Marc Jones

Duchamp and his little cabal of antagonistic dada's wanted art to be a purely intellectual tool. Well, plenty of modern art, and certainly contemporary art, asks the audience to seek meaning from ostensibly nonsensical pieces and, for me, this is exciting and very rarely boring.
