Magnum photographer Michael Christopher Brown had created a photography class in which he gave 12 children iPhones and equipped them with the skills to tell their own stories. These kids have no direct connection to the outside world; no way to share their story and, vitally, to have others respond. My Own Account was about going beyond the photographs, creating an opportunity to engage with the people behind them. We took inspiration from social media to create an exhibition in which visitors could show their love for the photographs that they really connected with. These interactions were recorded and shared with the children of Zaatari in what, for many, was their first interaction with the world outside since arriving at the camp. editorial design editorial graphic design

Feb.21 -- Icelandic artist Ragnar Kjartansson is about to open his first major exhibition in the U.K. at the Barbican in the heart of London. He’s said to be one of the most exciting artists working today, making his name with performance and video works that combine duration and repetition and dance between the realms of theatre, music, and art.

London fashion week featured tartan, corsets and formidable women as a new take on British identity came into focus I was early for Burberry on Monday evening, so as I waited I spent some time gazing at the monumental bronzes in the Henry Moore exhibition being hosted in the show space at Makers House. I’m no art critic, so what do I know, but they felt to me to be as much depictions of rolling hills and dales as they were of women. The graceful but uneven humps, the Durdle Door peepholes, the silent, gruff Jurassic grandeur. Surely, I thought, I’m looking at the British landscape, as well as a reclining nude? Moore’s wartime drawings of Londoners sleeping on tube station platforms have a straight-up Blitz spirit patriotism, but there is a sense of nationhood in these sculptures that reminded me of the radical roots of the ramblers and Stanley Baldwin talking about England in 1924: “The tinkle of the hammer on the anvil in the country smithy, the corncrake on a dewy morning .

The Vatican and Rome's Jewish community on Monday presented an ambitious exhibition on the menorah which will bring together 130 works featuring the iconic Jewish candelabrum, an ancient symbol of the faith. The show on the seven-candle Hebrew lamp will run simultaneously from May 15 to July 23 at the Vatican museums and the synagogue complex in a city which once housed one of the oldest Jewish communities in the world. The artifacts are being loaned by nearly 20 museums around the world, including London's National Gallery and the Louvre in Paris. Among them will be one of the earliest known depictions of a menorah, an engraved stone found at the site in Israel where a synagogue from the Second Temple period was discovered by archaeologists in 2009. Christian medieval candlesticks inspired by the menorah, as well as the works of contemporary artists, will also be on display.

A collection of celebrated works depicting a nation in flux travels to the Royal Academy in a once-in-a-lifetime exhibition In Depth Tuesday, February 21, 2017 - 11:29am American Gothic sits in such esteemed company as the Mona Lisa and Edward Munch's The Scream as being one of the most parodied paintings of all time – so much so there's even a website dedicated to it . You might have seen spoofs on the covers of magazines, in political satire, cartoons and advertising, or even flicked through the amusing gallery of visitors to Eldon, Iowa, who have recreated the familiar scene against the backdrop of the famous farmhouse. But outside the painting's permanent home in the Art Institute of Chicago, chances are many who recognise it will never have seen it in person – until now.
