For Ms. Gonzalez spiral forms are pervasive, macro and micro, embodied universally in structures like the Milky Way, earth’s orbit, DNA and much matter in between. They are pervasive across cultures evoking the magnetism of the mysterious and the sublime.

What is important today is that artists continue to create narratives about the "what for & what of" supporting imagination and creative expression in the midst of unparalleled opportunities which often compromise each other. Art from the heart is critical in this exploit of sustainable activism when commercial realities profane so much sacred ground. Welcome to the interior critique of post-modernism.

I cannot read spanish so my co worker read it for me and this is a very disrespectful portrayal of First Lady Michelle Obama. Even if you cannot read spanish, the picture is inappropriate, full stop!!!

Racism and prejudice is very strong in America and Barack Obama becoming president only brought more bigots to the surface.

The Heart of the Race will be the opening exhibition at the Black heritage centre in early 2013. This has been developed from an oral history project which recorded and contextualised the stories of Black women and their struggles and achievements in Britain. The inspiration for both is the seminal book The Heart of the Race by Beverley Bryan, Stella Dadzie and Suzanne Scafe (Virago, 1985).
The project has collected the testimonies 36 women including those…
