Bourgeois, Emin, Macke, Baldessari, De Waal, etc

At the weekend we went down to Cornwall for a couple of days, avoiding most of the Jubilee stuff - Took in the Tate, the Newlyn Gallery and some of the Cornwall Open Studios. Will post about that shortly - For the moment, however, here are some blog posts and other stuff from the web that I've liked recently:

Lisa Thatcher's piece on Louise Bourgeois. If you're interested in Bourgeois I can recommend the DVD about her life and work: The spider, the mistress and the tangerine.

Tracey Emin's interview about her homecoming exhibition at Turner Contemporary in Margate (until 23 September).

Poul Webb's piece on August Macke (part 1 of 4 - select the links from Poul's blog).

Tasseomancy - Reminds me of the McGarrigles and the Incredible String Band from the early 70s.

A Brief History of John Baldessari, the influential conceptual artist, narrated by Tom Waits.

Edmund de Waal, the ceramic artist, introduces his ceramics installations at Waddesdon Manor in Buckinghamshire. See the Guardian review here.

And finally, Skymonk's interactive kaleidoscopes (right click on the images and zoom in to see less symmetric patterns).
