In no particular order the gallery exhibitions we think you should try and visit after Frieze week not necessarily the ‘best’ but all very interesting in their own way and a wonderful way to slide back into the normal buzz of contemporary art in London.
1 Jean Dubuffet at PACE London
Théâtres de mémoir – Oct 21, 2017
Jean Dubuffet: Théâtres de memoir is the first exhibition of Dubuffet’s Théâtres de mémoire series in over three decades and the first-ever exhibition dedicated to the series in London. Curated by Arne Glimcher, the founder of Pace Gallery, and Tamara Corm, Senior Director at Pace London, this exhibition features fifteen monumental paintings on loan from Fondation Dubuffet, Tate, Fondation Beyeler and private collections. Most of the works have never been seen in the UK before.

5 David James: Gallery 46
Civilisation 25 October
The sublime materiality of the James’s paintings both seduces and repulses on equal terms, a tension that highlights the possibilities of legibility and appropriation in image making.
