Tracey Emin’s bed is back in the Tate after 16 years – how has her work changed and how has the art world changed since then? Is the bed still relevant and, if so, is it for the same reasons that it was before?
Great article! I love how you’ve differentiated between the popular animations – I’d never thought of them in these terms before!
Awesome article – I didn’t know a lot of this!
Really enjoyable article. I recently rewatched Mulholland Drive after several years, having watched it and totally not understanding it. This is an excellent analysis, and really helps in cracking its key themes open!
Really interesting analysis. I have only heard Lorde’s most prolific songs, but with this in mind will definitely be listening to the rest.
Great and comprehensive article. I also have found the insistence that Piper is identified as either “gay” or “not gay”, rather than anywhere in the middle seems oddly short-sighted and out of place for such a progressive show. Good work!
Great list! I’d never really considered the Gilmore Girls but may need to give it a look-in! 🙂
Really enjoyed this analysis, good work!
Agreed, it’s so aesthetically enjoyable!
