Diane Arbus: In the Beginning

Hayward Gallery, 13th February to 6th May

In 1956, at the age of 33, Diane Arbus reinvented herself in New York. Tired of fashion photography, she set out to capture “the divineness in ordinary things,” turning to eccentrics, children, nudists, circus performers and female impersonators for her subjects. Within 50 rolls she had discovered her method, inviting the engagement of the people she portrayed. This exhibition, drawn from the collection in the Metropolitan Museum, introduces over 100 images from the first six years of her groundbreaking work.

Jeff Koons

Ashmolean Museum, 7th February to 9th June

Jeff Koons, the much-fêted, much-vilified bad boy of American neo-Pop Art, first burst on the art scene in the 1980s. Consumer goods immortalised as artworks; gleaming, mirror-polished giant replicas of banal cartoon characters; jokey reproductions of canonical masterpieces—Koons works with bravado, kitsch, irony and immaculate finish to poke serious fun at high art. This major retrospective is co-curated by Norman Rosenthal.

About Prospect Magazine

In Prospect’s March issue: Gaby Hinsliff explains why all sides of the Brexit debate feel like they’re losing. She says that the Brexit war has raged on for two and half years and disfigured British politics in the process, leaving Remainers in mourning and Leavers crying betrayal. Elsewhere in the issue: James Ball, Martin Moore and Barbara Speed examine how we should be less worried about the tech giants Facebook, Amazon and Google and more worried about the data they hold about us. Ball argues that breaking up these huge companies isn’t the answer; Moore asks what would happens when a tech giant wants to run a smart city, and Speed looks at the increasing trend of tracking everything in our daily lives from the amount of water we drink to how many notifications we receive to our smartphone. Also, Rachel Sylvester profiles Sajid Javid, the Cabinet minister positioning himself for the top job.
