WILLIAM BURROUGHS:
All out of time and into space

October Gallery, London, on until 16th February 2013, Free.

I see painting as an evocative magic, and there must always be a random factor in magic, one which must be constantly changed and renewed.

William Burroughs

The spray painted innards of William Burroughs. Talismanic art <objects> riddled with dayglo bullet holes.

1913: The Shape of Time

Henry Moore Institute, Leeds, on until 17th February 2013, Free.

Our ancestors drew their subject matter from the religious attitudes which weighed on their souls. We must now learn to draw inspiration from the tangible miracles around us.

Umberto Boccioni

Challenging our understandings of objects, of body, of time, in space/s through sculptural thinking of the 4th Dimension. Boccioni, Modigliani, Epstein, Rodin, Soffici, Gaudier-Brzeska, Duchamp…a bombshell of an exhibition.
