The very ethos of his practice is rooted in a 1960s American obsession with the implications of space travel and, with that, an embedded fear of otherness,” writes the Guggenheim’s Nancy Spector in her introduction to this 30-year retrospective of Crewdson’s work.

Box Clever: Peak-time viewing

Cornelia Parker is an artist and Turner Prize nominee, and somewhat inevitably, a target for the popular press. In a new BBC2 series she attempts to explain her work, which could be a tough assignment for a woman notorious for exhibiting actress Tilda Swinton in a perspex case

Serota defends all-women Turner Prize shortlist

Re-educating Tilda

Tilda Swinton in power suits and lipstick? Yes, but it's not what it seems. 'Female Perversions' explores women's need to adopt false identities to survive. And, says the performance artist, the role taught her a lot. By Liese Spencer

Jacobi takes on a meaty role in film about Bacon

In the steps of st derek

At lunch in The Pilot at Dungeness, I recall that Derek Jarman came here on the day he decided to buy Prospect Cottage. In Derek Jarman's Garden he explains how he, Tilda Swinton and Keith Collins (to whom he eventually bequeathed the cottage) were scouring the Ness for film locations and stopped for lunch at The Pilot, where he mentioned he'd seen a covetable cottage. When they all trooped over to have a look at it, they found a "for sale" sign outside. Today, full of hearty Kentish families tucking in, The Pilot is a curious place to invoke the ethereal director - and his mercurial star, for that matter. I took Swinton to lunch once and she ate nothing. It is very hard to imagine her wrapping her face around The Pilot's famous fish and chips.

Robert Wilson's HG frees us from the tyranny of conventional theatre, says Clare Bayley

Robert Wilson, one of the great theatre-makers of this century, frequently proclaims his frustration with theatre as a medium. His work has constantly taken theatre beyond the bounds we recognise (his famous KA MOUNTAIN and GARDenia TERRACE was performed simultaneously on seven hills in Shiraz non-stop for seven days) and with HG he goes further down the road of mixed-media installation than anyone else to date. It's a road that is beckoning more and more of our most exciting theatre practitioners - Deborah Warner and Hildegard Bechtler's St Pancras Project earlier this year was a significantly mainstream bridge between installation and theatre, and Tilda Swinton has just linked up with Cornelia Parker for The Maybe at the Serpentine - and the more this path is explored, the more audiences can learn about their response to both media, as well as the hybrid offspring.

Leading Article: The prime of Mr Brandon Lee

Mrs May MacKinnon and her son Brian kept themselves to themselves. Most days neighbours on their Glasgow estate would see the 32-year-old man come and go, often in his old car. They thought nothing more about it. Until this week, when they discovered that Brian MacKinnon's day job was acting the part of Brandon Lee, aged 17, star pupil at Bearsden Academy. In a performance requiring endurance far outweighing Tilda Swinton's stay in a glass case, old Brian played young Brandon for a year - a year in which he starred in the school production of South Pacific and which culminated in his achieving good enough qualifications to earn a place at Dundee University studying medicine.
