5 to Read: This Month

Aesthetica selects five must-read publications for April. This month’s books look to women in the arts, notions of home and evocative narratives.

New Territories

New Artists: Olga Urbanek is self-taught, living and working in Iceland. Her images question the idea of “blending in” to new environments.

The April / May Issue

This issue is a celebration of the human spirit. Entitled ‘Time for Change’ it focuses on a moment of hope within the chaos of today’s world.

Forging Connections

The Cardiff-based festival returns for its fourth edition, looking at how, in contemporary visual culture, images come together with sound.

Fleshed out with warm, earthy tones, each of Christophe Barneau’s pictures casts a warm filter over virtual interiors and their items.

Connection In Motion

The innovative TAO Dance Theatre is recognised for a minimalist approach to performance. The inventive studio returns to Sadler’s Wells.

Letizia Le Fur’s works are nourished by a sense of wanderlust – moving round spaces with a sensitive gaze. The images are laden with sensory markers.
