  • Wolfgang Tillmans' 'Dan' at the BMA shakes the viewer while revealing so little

    Wolfgang Tillmans' 'Dan' at the BMA shakes the viewer while revealing so little
    The human body is both excessively revered and despised. We take so much pride in our bodies that we imagine God as having the same white, male form. We value certain bodies so much that we make them impossible standards. Bodies are used as symbols of...

  • Dario Robleto's 'Setlists For a Setting Sun' is like a religious shrine for scientists

    Dario Robleto's 'Setlists For a Setting Sun' is like a religious shrine for scientists
    There’s a good chance we’re not alone in the universe. We, the citizens of Earth, have yet to knowingly communicate with extraterrestrial lifeforms, unless our cats or David Bowie are keeping something from us, as we suspect they might be. But...

  • Finding a sense of isolation and anxiety in Alberto Giacometti's 'Man Pointing' at the BMA

    Finding a sense of isolation and anxiety in Alberto Giacometti's 'Man Pointing' at the BMA
