Art in Time: a new book from Phaidon

Phaidon’s upcoming release, Art in Time, represents artists and their work in relation to the times that inspired them—around the world and across the centuries. Not an easy task by any means. 

The book begins with the most recent artistic developments of the 21st century and works backwards in time through some of art’s most interesting periods. It orientates these alongside historical events, providing social and political contexts for each movement.

You can find out more about the book and preorder now over here.

Catherine Evans: Standing Stone

We're excited to be featuring an interview with artist Catherine Evans in our upcoming issue of The Meander.

There are still a few days left to catch her current exhibition in Melbourne:

Standing Stone
Until 17 May
BLINDSIDE, Level 7, Room 14, Nicholas Building, 37 Swanston St, Melbourne
Open Tuesday – Saturday, 12pm – 6pm

"Using a biro and ruler, moles and freckles were connected with diagrammatic lines, just as planets, stars and dark nebula are drawn to one another in astronomical illustrations. In the exhibition, this exact configuration of blemishes is re-presented using volcanic rocks in a sculptural installation." 

– excerpt from the exhibition text by Laura Skerlj
