After Walter

What have our RAs been up to lately? Jock McFadyen RA has been obsessed with Walter Sickert’s Camden Town nudes since he saw an exhibition of them in 2007. He thought they'd lost their power to shock modern audiences. Is that what badly painted prostitutes on iron bedsteads were supposed to do? Shock? Jock thinks so. He's been updating Sickert’s nudes to make them more erotic and more shocking. Yawn. Jock McFadyen RA: After Walter at Eleven Spitalfields displays over 60 "boudoirs" with distressed frames to make them look more ... er ... nostalgic (CLICK).
