This week: as the Art Dubai fair opens, The Art Newspaper’s acting digital editor Aimee Dawson tells us about this latest edition, its ongoing commitment to displaying the art of the global south and its continued focus on digital art.
The Museum of Modern Art in New York opens the largest media exhibition it has ever staged, Signals: How Video Transformed the World on 5 March. It looks at how artists around the globe have used video as a networked technology capable of reaching huge audiences but also how they have employed video to reflect on or engage in activism and urgent political developments. We talk to the show’s curators, Stuart Comer and Michelle Kuo.
And this episode’s Work of the Week is a coffee pot and milk jug from 1960 by Lucie Rie, the great modernist potter. Eliza Spindel, co-curator of the exhibition Lucie Rie: The Adventure of Pottery at Kettle’s Yard in Cambridge, UK, tells us about these objects and Rie’s life and work.
