Self portraits across time is the theme of this exhibition in St Gallen. Whether it’s Switzerland’s perennial favourite artist Hodler, looking at a mirror, or a 16th Century Lucretia, self portraits and faces always have a story to tell. According to the Kunstmuseum: “The exhibition Gazes Out of Time brings

Art of the 80s

Think of the 80s and first reflections are of Duran Duran, Synth Pop and shoulder pads, at least in this house.  But as the new exhibition at the Albertina Modern shows, the 80s was a vital decade in the history of art. No one style dominated the decade; kitsch was

Hodler’s Lumberjack

Is Hodler’s Lumberjack similar to Van Gogh’s Sunflowers? In the sense that multiple versions were painted and it is loved by many then it can certainly be considered to be. The KmL has an exhibition of paintings and drawings of the subject, which was originally conceived as part of a

Cue David Bowie (and if you’re not old enough to remember him, head over to Spotify and check him out now).  Schattenmonster & andere Verwandlungen is the actual title of this exhibition in Winterthur, but I’m not one to let accuracy get in the way of a good headline.  “Mountains,

Camille Pissarro – The Studio of Modernism

Pissaro is one of those Impressionists that it’s all too easy to forget about, but in Basel’s Kunstmuseum he’s been high on their list for a long time. In fact the first impressionist picture they ever acquired (back in 1912)  was his Un coin de l’Hermitage, Pontoise. Since then they’ve

Tony Conrad – Mamco

Quite surprised by this one. I still listen to some of Conrad’s drone music, typically his collaboration with Faust, Outside the Dream Syndicate.
