Film • Frank

Friday  08:55,   10 june 2016
msn

Dazzlingly strange art rock pours out of 'Frank', both the movie, a dark comedy from the Irish director Lenny Abrahamson ('What Richard Did', 'Garage'), and the title character, a singer devoted to lyrics about random tufts[...]

Fully Committed

The Crucible

Friday  08:50,   10 june 2016
msn

There are two types of audience members attending Ivo van Hove’s The Crucible: those who take their seats and, when the curtain rises, wonder, Why’s it set in a classroom? and the other half (please let it be more than half) that nods and thinks, Of [...]

Mary Heilmann

Friday  08:45,   10 june 2016
msn

Heilmann, born in San Francisco in 1940, has forged a singular path, riffing on various styles of abstraction – hard-edge painting, expressionist brushwork, the dot, the splodge, the stripe, the dribble – in a deceptively casual manner. In one[...]

Alex Katz: Quick Light

Friday  08:45,   10 june 2016
msn

Born in Brooklyn in 1927, Katz came of age in a New York where abstract expressionism was in the middle of supplanting the old realists, and the anarchy of pop lay around the corner. In between, he developed an oeuvre which made nods to all three,[...]
