I’d like to start by visiting exhibitions by some brilliant women artists.
I’d like to start by visiting exhibitions by some brilliant women artists. Beginning in East London, in Shoreditch, Lisa Milroy's exhibition at Kate MacGarry is a must-see, and very close by is Herald St where I’m really looking forward to seeing Christina Mackie's show of new, large-scale watercolours and ceramics. Both of these artists have been making compelling work for a significant time, but continue to shift their practice.
Travelling into Central London, I’ll head to Modern Art Bury St where the amazing Jacqueline Humphries is the subject of a solo exhibition. My next stop is Alison Jacques gallery where the 'Fist of Fury' exhibition by Jane Dickson promises to be spectacular. Then, at Goodman Gallery is a group show of artists whose practice incorporates traditional forms of making; I am particularly looking forward to seeing work by Ghada Amer and Kapwani Kiwanga there.
I am also drawn to the exhibition about football fans by Marcin Dudek at Edel Assanti as I have a long-held interest in fans as subject matter in art, and the idea that entertainment arenas constitute our contemporary sites of devotion.
In South London, the show by Larry Achiampong at Copperfield is a must-see – Larry was part of Liverpool Biennial in 2021, and has worked in the city before. I am always interested to see how he brings together different reference points in his work.
