It’s beach weather here in Brighton, but first aggregated art links for a Bank Holiday Weekend:

  • How could a show with such a title be anything but great. Read about “Ain’t Painting a Pain?” by Richard Jackson at Orange County Museum of Art
  • Billions and billions of stars are now available for viewing at Apexart in New York for the “Slack-jawed wonderment” of all who drop by
  • Some more committed Russian protest art, this time from student Peter Pavlesnkiy. He’s stripped off and wrapped himself in barbed wire. Wince
  • It surprised me to learn that Bedwyr Williams is an official druid. Karen Wright visits the artist in his studio ahead of representing Wales in Venice this year
  • Michael Jang’s family photos are better than most. American Suburb X post a hugely enjoyable gallery of his kin larking about
  • Madrid’s Reina Sofía to show more than 200 works by Salvador Dalí. I for one would be quite ok with the legendary surrealist coming back into vogue
  • The Hammer Museum in LA is showing an exhibition of sculptural oddities by Enrico David. Contemporary Art Daily has the pics
  • Tracey Emin is interviewed at length about love, growing up and Louise Bourgeois. Art Info carry the three page story
  • Blogger Chloe Nelkin has clearly enjoyed Tate Modern’s low key show of 97-year-old Lebanese artist Saloua Raouda Choucair
  • Henri, the Existential Cat, has made a new film for the Paris Review. I think I’ve linked to him before but he is fantastique.
