    My seven galleries cover seven miles of London, carrying you from the east to the south to the west of the city. Let’s start with the delightful Francis Upritchard at Kate MacGarry, her first show at the Old Nichol Street gallery in 5 years. Next, we’ll head down to David Batchelor’s joint show with Alfredo Volpi at Cecilia Brunson Projects, a great taster for his upcoming survey exhibition at Compton Verney this summer. Suitably warmed up, and hopefully well caffeinated, we can then make our way to Mayfair for Caroline Walker at Stephen Friedman, whose elegiac paintings never fail to remain imprinted in my mind; to the minimalist New York sculptor Rosmarie Castoro at Thaddaeus Ropac; to the ever inventive Ghada Amer’s show at Goodman Gallery; to Titus Kaphar at Gagosian’s Grosvenor Hill space, which I’m particularly excited to see after admiring his work in the National Gallery of Art’s Afro-Atlantic History; and lastly to Ludovic Nkoth, whose work I have only ever seen in reproduction, and who has his first solo exhibition in London at MASSIMODECARLO. By which point, we’ve definitely earned ourselves a cocktail at 45 St Jermyn Street!
