Dressing The Air is the brainchild of the London-based artist Paul Schütze.

In a career spanning 30 years, Schütze has exhibited his photographic and installation works in galleries and museums around the world, released over thirty albums of original recordings, scored a number of films and performed numerous concerts. He has collaborated with artists such as James Turrell, Josiah McElheny and Isaac Julien and musicians as diverse as Bill Laswell, Raoul Björkenheim, Toshinori Kondo, Lol Coxhill and Jah Wobble.

Dressing The Air is a unique open resource that aims to enrich creative thinking by encouraging a multi-sensory approach. A constantly evolving archive and creative news feed, Dressing The Air monitors and reports on a diverse range of art-forms from cinema to sculpture, painting to furniture design, land-art to perfumery.

Joseph Cornell - Royal Academy

From a modest body of work constructed in quiet obscurity, Cornell's influence continues to resonate throughout the cultural landscape. Something universal in the urge to capture and classify, to catalog and encode the objects one encounters, has lifted his works out of time and rendered them impossibly personal communications. His refusal to engage with contemporary codes of art practice has guaranteed his pieces an unlikely immortality often compromised in works trapped within stylistic historical tropes. The evidence of naked engagement with the stuff of his passions is disarming and direct. It entirely dispenses with language and with the intellectual trends which would limit the lifespan of objects less cryptic. I have no doubt that this show would have the same impact a century from now and that the perfume of Cornell's mind would be as fresh and beguiling as it remains today. Until September the 27th.
