We have our very own man about town/art reviewer, who has very kindly agreed to share some of his knowledge of ‘what’s on’ with us. We’ll post a proper introduction to him shortly but here are his first recommendations…
Hauser & Wirth
Savile Row London W1
A major show at this new space consisting of drawings, sculptures, and most importantly fabric works, which are amazing. Use of colour, pattern and texture with great attention to construction of the pieces. A fabulous catalogue accompanies the show.
Ends Dec 18th
Hoxton Square N1
Show of porcelain works revolving around death, loss and grief. She uses female forms, vine-like cords and representations of sexual organs to produce incredibly powerful works either standing on plinths or hanging on walls.
Ends Jan 22nd
Cork Street W1
Christine Keeler – My Life in Pictures
A collection of 70 photographs and letters between Christine and her parents, written while she was in prison as a result of an affair with John Profumo, the British War Minister.
Photographers include David Bailey, Duffy and Lewis Morley.
Ends Dec 17th
Wharf Road N1
Over fifty photographs by the American photographer who died, age 22, in 1981. A lot of the photos are self-portraits with the artist partially covered by fabric, wallpaper, or hiding behind furniture.
Almost all are black and white and explore focusing and printing techniques.
Ends Jan 22nd
New Art Exchange
A chance to view The Clock which is the latest 24 hour video piece by the American artist.
It uses thousands of film clips edited together to create 24 hours of ‘real time’.
Ends Jan 9th (hopefully coming to Hayward Gallery as part of the British Art Show)
