The power of flowers: Pierre-Joseph Redoute exhibition

Posted on September 15, 2017 by Toothpicker

 
There are many world-class art museums in Paris, but I tend to favour the lesser-known ones that are slightly off the beaten track. Located at the foot of Montmartre hill is Musée de la Vie romantique (The Museum of Romantic Life or Museum of the Romantics), a small and pretty hôtel particulier [...]

Franco Grignani: Art as design 1950-1990 at Estorick Collection

Posted on August 8, 2017 by Toothpicker

The tranquil Grade II listed Estorick Collection of Modern Italian Art
 
Reopened earlier this year after 5 months' of refurbishment, the delightful Estorick Collection of Modern Italian Art is one of my favourite museums in London. Located in Highbury, the museum is off the beaten track, so it is not touristy nor does [...]

This year's Serpentine pavilion is designed by Diébédo Francis Kéré, the Berlin-based African architect from Gando, Burkina Faso.
Inspired by the tree that serves as a central meeting point for life in his home town of Gando, Francis Kéré's design aims to connect its visitors to nature – and each other. The [...]

"Typography and the sea of words" exhibition at CACHe HK

Posted on April 15, 2017 by Toothpicker

 
The building and courtyard of CACHe on Western Street, Sai Yun Pun
 
In recent years, an influx of international art galleries and art fairs has somehow transformed Hong Kong – the infamous cultural desert – into Asia's glossy art hub. To be honest, I am not sure if this has had much [...]

Transcending Boundaries by teamlab
 
Is contemporary Asian art gaining more recognition in the West today? Apparently so. Interestingly, three prominent contemporary art galleries in London held exhibitions on three very different Asian artists/collective around the same period, and one of the most talked about exhibition must have been the immersive "Transcending [...]

I have previously written about the late British Iraqi star architect Zaha Hadid (click here), and I showed little enthusiasm about her later works. However, I was a fan of her earlier paintings – the conceptual ones [...]

Matt Mullican: The Sequence of Things at Camden Arts Centre
 
I am not a fan of mega blockbuster art exhibitions, often I find them over-hyped and mentally exhausting. There are some smaller and out-of-the-centre art centres/galleries that I love visiting and Camden Arts Centre (in Hampstead) is one of them.
Recently, I went to [...]

Fluorescent Chrysanthemum at ICA

Posted on November 29, 2016 by Toothpicker

 
Like 2016, 1968 was a turbulent year with seismic social and political change taking place across the globe. It was the year when the civil rights leader Rev. Martin Luther King Jr. and Senator Robert F. Kennedy were assassinated; Apollo 8 and three US astronauts orbited the moon; 800,000 students, teachers and [...]
