Robert Rauschenberg (1925-2008) was an exceptionally versatile artist. His practice encompassed painting, printmaking, sculpture, photography, installation and performance. After leaving the Navy in 1947 and a stint of studying in Europe, Rauschenberg enrolled at Black Mountain College where the influential abstract artist, Josef Albers, taught him and he met lifelong collaborators John Cage and Merce Cunningham.
Making Nature: How we See Animals
Darwin might have proved that, when all's said and done, humans are no different to the rest of the animal kindgdom – but we've never treated them the same.

Thirty-four years ago, photographer David Bailey released his book 'NW1': a series of images of Camden and Primrose Hill, where he had lived for decades. At that time, the area was in a state of crumbling disrepair – hard to imagine for those who know this swanky location now. To tie in with the book's re-printing, publishers HENI are holding an exhibitions of these poignant images form yesteryear.
Chloe Sells: Measuring Infinity
The American-born photographer works in the darkroom, and creates seductive and complex images, often working into the pictures with paint and marker pens. This new series of images are the outcome of two years of photographing the Makgadikgadi Salt Pan in Botswana.
