Paul Graham's new series, American Night, currently on show in New York and London, pursues the artist's interest in the nature of vision. Val Williams discusses how Graham's work, a visual narrative which contrasts poverty and affluence in the American urban landscape, explores the boundaries between art and politics.

The installation of Wolfgang Tillman's exhibition at Tate Britain this summer reinforced his philosophy of a non-hierarchical way of seeing.
