As a lifelong lover of traditional storytelling, its easy to get sniffy about digital wanting to rewrite the rulebook, but the fact of the matter is that a richer, more immersive way to enjoy stories is, without a doubt, waiting for us somewhere down this long and winding road.
Nixon's case shows the lengths some politicians will go to seize and maintain power. As well as gaining and maintaining power by malicious and illegal means, Nixon has helped tarnish the reputation of politicians internationally. It is hard for modern politicians to claim integrity when people like Nixon make them look inherently devious, selfish and morally bankrupt. In a word - psychopathic.
The world of higher education is converging on a common cause. The impact of rapid technological advancement and globalisation has expedited a process of sharing knowledge and breaking down barriers internationally across the sector.
This year marks the 25th anniversary of one of the most iconic trainer styles - the Nike Air Max. As part of their celebrations to mark the occasion, Nike commissioned various London artists to interpret some classic Air Max styles and the results now form part of a 'Nike Air Max Reinvent' exhibition...
At the Edges celebrates the exquisite. A 'place' where reflection, commonly associated with the experience of landscape, actually becomes a part of the work as in the work of Gary Colclough. This exhibition addresses itself at what is usually regarded as an undemanding and exhausted genre of painting.
Gabriella Boyd is a fresh, young talent on the contemporary art scene. Having graduated from Glasgow School of Art where she received the Chairman's Award in 2011, she came to the attention of Charles Saatchi who bought two of her paintings and his Saatchi Gallery awarded her a Special Commendation.
I do like popular music. Can you imagine if the Olympic opening ceremony had culminated with a bit of jingoistic Elgar or, God forbid, - Delius? Hey Jude gets a stadium singing, but it is only one moment in time. The classical lives on a far grander canvas.
So it looks like the Child With a Dove, Picasso's moving image of a small child clutching a bird, subject of a thousand postcards, is to go. What a tragedy. Or is it? What, exactly, is to be 'lost'? The painting is not actually to be destroyed (though you might be forgiven for thinking so) and is not, nor has ever been, in physical jeopardy.
Thomas Keneally is still puzzled by the fervent way in which he is embraced by British readers and critics.
I am a mere four years into my journey as a photographer and just over two years into my journey as a professional photographer. In that time my style and aesthetic has developed. I have moved on and I can see my work becoming more my own. I am still learning and I hope I always will be.
In a nutshell, this is a book that resonates as it asks the unknowable question - how well can one person really know another? *Suspiciously looks over at boyfriend*
But in an era of continued cynicism about politicians, whose reputations nose-dived further after the MPs' expenses scandal of the last parliament, and at a time of falling participation in our democracy, Russell's book has a bigger objective than just trying to show politicians in a 'human' light.
We know this: that all art is the product of the modern human brain with its beginnings, over 100,000 years ago, in Africa. There, our species Homo sapiens sapiens evolved before spreading out around the globe to become the most successful animal ever. Those who migrated to the icy lands of Europe encountered Neanderthal people who, having evolved there over such a long period, had probably developed fair skin. The dark skinned, fully modern migrants who interbred with them produced the first figurative art in Europe. They themselves, in turn, gradually became fairer as they adapted to life at higher latitudes. Those are the facts. This is fiction: 'Race'.
Well not exactly 'ban' (that was just to get your attention) but they are changing the rules as to what students are allowed to do on their premises. Sketchpads in the temporary exhibitions are no longer allowed.
TEFAF is 260 exhibitors, seemingly miles of corridors and countless objects, pictures and jewels to admire. But behind all of this sparkle lies a delightful human drama. It is the people that make this show happen, it is the daily flow of passing crowds and hurried meals and chance encounters that create a unique ambience.
"The problem we face is that so far it's only scientists who are talking about climate change. And scientists aren't always the best communicators in ...
