Overview

  • Route

    There is so much to discover in London, and our gallery scene reflects this – each area has its own personality. I’ll start with some of the close-knit galleries in Central London, beginning with David Zwirner on Grafton Street for recent work by Suzan Frecon which will be a must-see; then to a gorgeous show by Rosemarie Castoro, an artist central to New York’s minimal and post-minimal art scene in the 1960s but who did not receive the visibility of her male peers. Thaddaeus Ropac gives the artist her first solo presentation in the UK. [Read my full route description below]

    A few streets over I’ll make my way down Cork Street, which has been the historic spot for art galleries for almost a century and is constantly changing. Shows this year for London Gallery Weekend include an exhibition at Waddington Custot which is showing photography and painting by Hans Hartung, and Goodman Gallery’s exhibition of Ghada Amer: her first major show in London in around twenty years. With the title 'MY BODY MY CHOICE', it’s not to be missed. Around the corner, I’ll stop in on Pilar Corrias, showing Vivien Zhang, a young painter at the beginning of her career, and then continuing down Savile Row visit Hauser & Wirth for work by Venezuelan artist Luchita Hurtado: she was nearly 100 years old when she died, and produced incredible work over her lifetime. 

     

    Finally – it’s off to Fitzrovia to catch the newly opened show at Addis Fine Art of work by Nigatu Tsehay, guest curated by British-Nigerian curator Péjú Oshin, after which I have just a little time left in the afternoon to plan my routes around London for the rest of the weekend!
