Might Museums Be The Schools Of The Future?

Most of us remember school trips to museums and galleries - in some cases, only because of the welcome contrast to the everyday. At best, the museums and galleries - their collections of curiosities rich with cultural history - created memories more enduring than the classroom-based learning they were intended to supplement.

It's been a catch 22. Prices won't rise for female artists until they're shown in major museums; museums won't show female artists until they achieve equal heights in the market. But, excitingly, more women are occupying key influential roles - from heading up galleries to curating museum content.

The Last Degenerate Artist

Hans Feibusch is the last of Hitler's Degenerate Artists. The last survivor. It must feel funny to be 'the last' of a group, simply because you're still alive. The degenerates were the collection of German artists - otherwise unconnected to each-other - who were named and shamed, exiled and imprisoned, because their art was defined 'contrary to the public good' by the Third Reich.

From Kings to suffragettes, from the IRA to artists themselves, there is a long history of art being the focus of attack both from the state and from the public. This history of iconoclasm, or image breaking, is captured in this wide-ranging and fascinating exhibition at the Tate Britain.

Ever wondered what a JMW Turner seascape painting might taste like? Fishy, if you ask chef Rachel Khoo. Or how a Frances Bacon triptych might sound - dark and moodily rockin', if you ask the band Everything Everything. This might sound like some strange experiment in synaesthesia; in fact, its for a video series I've been making to mark the launch of the new Tate Britain...

Philippa Warr

As much as I loved the artworks, I don't find myself angry at the act of vandalism per se. The thing which bothers me is the knock on effects of vandalism - the fact that there will be people who are furious and that fury could end up limiting the physical enjoyment of Rothko's work.

Pre-Raphaelites: Victorian Avant-Garde (REVIEW)

Tate Britain's survey is pretty much a greatest hits compilation. Arranged into thematic rooms, with little sense of narrative direction, the show won't do much to change anybody's preconceptions of the movement. Those who already love the stylistic mannerisms will delight in the accumulation of works here, but there is nothing presented to challenge the preconceptions of the audience.
