Piet Mondrian is one of the best known of all modern artists - and also the most misunderstood. But we could all learn a thing or two from the real Mondrian, says Dr. Michael White, the co-curator of Tate Liverpool's new exhibition

Syria Is the Biggest Refugee Crisis in the World... And It's Not Going Away

The Syria crisis may have fallen off the news agenda, but it hasn't gone away. Every month around 100,000 Syrians become refugees. Again and again I was told the humanitarian situation is extremely fragile and critically underfunded, but there was enormous praise for Jordan - not a rich country by Middle Eastern standards, yet it is showing great generosity towards the Syrian people. This is an international crisis on an epic scale. It's a matter of global responsibility - Jordan and the other countries neighbouring Syria should not be bearing the brunt of this alone.

Rihanna's See-Through Dress Just Undermines Her Strength As A Woman

Poorna Bell

This dress, judging by her 'I dare you to say something' stance in the photo, is a statement. Yet it tells you nothing about her brain, what she's thinking or her achievements - this just reduces her to her body parts, and that I do have a problem with.

What My Brother Taught Me About Making Good Art

My oldest brother was always a very creative person. He was an excellent storyteller with an astute eye for beautiful imagery. He was skilled at drawing and painting with oil. I remember watching him draw in his room when he still lived at home and how I would try to emulate his style in my own drawings.

Edge of Tomorrow could have been another of Serling's mini masterpieces, the 'what if' tale of a soldier resurrected to fight an alien war on Earth.

The Global Summit to End Sexual Violence in Conflict Must Look to Abuse of Women in the DRC

Juliet Stevenson | Posted 01.08.2014 | UK
Juliet Stevenson

In the DRC women are already seen treated as objects, rather than individuals, in the eyes of society. If agents of the state are actively preventing women from empowering themselves and raising their voices to speak out against discrimination, gender-based violence and political sidelining, then the status quo is unlikely to change. If those brave individuals who do speak out against the government, or who speak for under-represented groups, are sexually tortured into submission, then others are not likely to follow in their footsteps.

Can Anyone Find Our Humanity?

Will Young | Posted 28.07.2014 | UK Entertainment
Will Young

If you continually cater towards the worst case scenario all sense of individuality and creativity is lost. In the arts community a defensive attitude is what leads to dull records, drab theatre and films that are so formulaic thought is not necessary. The fear factor spills over into all avenues of life. I want to remain optimistic. I want to be allowed to act with some suitable risk and courage and I want responsibility for my life...

London, know that I love you and if Ukip become a genuine threat to us I would jump on a plane in a second to protest, but I just wanted to update you on what I'm up to right now, starting from scratch and living in Los Angeles.

Theatre Review: Kathleen Turner Stars in Bakersfield Mist

Victoria Sadler | Posted 28.07.2014 | UK Entertainment

Bakersfield Mist is a short, fairly enjoyable play that battles clichés and unbelievable set-ups as it tries to make a point about art, education and the patronising exclusivity and arrogance of the art world.

The Artists Reclaiming Our Data

Peter Yeung | Posted 23.07.2014 | UK Entertainment
Peter Yeung

Just as Ayn Rand's Roark subversively demolishes the Corlandt building after promises are broken and his designs changed, these artists are undermining a society that no longer functions for the benefit of the common people. Their art not only brings home the reality of today's surveillance state, but asks, do we have to live this this?

Mindfulness - Wake Up and Pay Attention!

Ruby Wax

I'm thinking about how angry I am that someone in London fixing my bathroom has put in a shower tray rather than a flat-tiled floor. I'm sitting in this perfection, attempting to practise being mindful, focusing on the beauty before my eyes but no, I'm dragged back to the shower tray saga and getting more and more angry. I'm trying with all I've got to not hate myself for being so shallow.

Renaissance Impressions: Chiaroscuro Woodcuts Exhibition, Royal Academy of Arts

Victoria Sadler | Posted 19.07.2014 | UK Entertainment
Victoria Sadler

You'd expect woodcuts to be quite dry, with the images rigid and lacking in artistic expression but not at all. The technical expertise in the 150 prints the RA has brought together is such that there is great detail in these prints with bodies outlined in curving sculpting lines, and cross-hatchings used for shadow.
