Editorial Volume 34 no.2 November/December 2019

Apathy Are you one of the many visitors on our planet who suffers from apathy, without even knowing what this popular malady is? Do you drag yourself around, day after day, going to bed fighting sleepless nights, while searching for meaning in your life?

Museum of Modern Women I completely agree with you Kathryn about “the complex and interconnected narrative of female experience”, which by far surpasses the superficial male experience. In that “these bodies are also full of desire, power, and humanity” is what our fundamental core message is here, something all women can well relate to. I find it amazing that 50 …

This can’t but influence someone’s cultural makeup and imaginarium. Italy is a country that is …

Open Letter to James Green and the Newlyn Orion Trustees Thank you, Sian, for your answer, as once again we receive a refusal from Newlyn Art Gallery in Newlyn, Cornwall in the UK, to stock the New Art Examiner.

Goodbye and thanks for all the art

“It looks like you’re going to get into a vehicle and you’re going to travel…..” The Biennale of Venice, defined by Codswallop artist Ken Turner as a funfair, has unveiled an installation that is really the “ultimate” in design. A very stylish pod, reminiscent of the pods in the 1956 film, Invasion of the Body Snatchers, encases an easy-death casket. …

Editorial

What if we all spoke our minds? What would happen if writers of art criticism took off their horse blinds and wrote what they really thought? What would the art world be like today? Would we be any closer to discovering truths? Digging down to see what is there in front of us is what the writers of the New …
