Actions. The Image of the World Can Be Different

Kettle’s Yard, Cambridge, 10th February to 6th May

In 1944 the sculptor Naum Gabo argued that abstract art’s role was to assert that “the image of the world can be different.”Gabo was a friend of Jim Ede, the passionate collector who founded the gallery Kettle’s Yard believing in art’s power to transform minds. Reopening after an ambitious two-year building programme, Kettle’s Yard is again affirming this ideal. The exhibition combines key works by Henri Gaudier- Brzeska (below) and Barbara Hepworth with works from modern artists. New commissions will be dotted around Cambridge

All Too Human: Bacon, Freud and a Century of Painting Life

Tate Britain, 28th February to 27th August

“I want paint to work as flesh,”said Lucian Freud. Tate Britain presents those British artists—from Walter Sickert to Paula Rego, with Freud and Francis Bacon at their core—obsessed with finding new ways to depict the human figure, inspired as much by human frailty as by grandeur.

About Prospect Magazine

In Prospect’s February 2018 issue: John Naughton, James Ball, Yuan Ren, Hannah Jane Parkinson and Houman Barekat outline the ways in which our lives are controlled by big tech giants. Naughton argues that Facebook and Google have created a new “surveillance capitalism” in which they battle to grow user engagement of their products and monetise our lives for their own gain as they do so. The cover package also explores how “bots,” fake social media accounts, influenced the US presidential vote and the Brexit referendum as well as the effects of removing net neutrality in the US. Elsewhere in the issue: Samira Shackle asks what happens to ordinary civilians affected by Islamic State as they attempt to move back to their homes and rebuild their lives; Shahidha Bari asks whether we can continue to appreciate the work of actors, filmmakers and writers who have been disgraced; and Christine Ockrent profiles Michel Barnier.
