View of Tamara Henderson's "Seasons End: Panting Healer," Rodeo, London, 2017.
by

Tom Morton

A rule of thumb: hearing about other people’s trips abroad is boring. Another: hearing about their dreams is even worse.

The curtain finally pulls upward revealing a moon of bright white. The opening images of Mary Helena Clark’s By foot-candle light (2011) present... continue reading

by

Morgan Quaintance

What’s to be gained from aestheticizing resistance, from reducing political protest and its violent and repressive fallout to a highly stylized image?
