Tabish Khan brings you five art exhibitions in London that you should visit during the week. Each one comes with a concise review to help you decide whether it’s for you.
1. Sensing Spaces: Architecture Reimagined @ Royal Academy
Seven architecture firms are allowed to re-imagine the Royal Academy galleries with sensational results in this early contender for exhibition of the year.
2. Turner and the Sea @ National Maritime Museum
Seascapes show us why Turner is regarded as the greatest British artist, perfectly capturing the crashing of waves and rolling of ships.
3. Jan Manski: Possesia @ Breese Little
Macabre sculptures in this dark and militaristic exhibition.
4. He Xiangyu @ White Cube, Bermondsey
A leather deflated tank and sculptures made from Coca-Cola residue examine the march of consumerism in China. Also of not are Darren Almond’s landscapes lit only by the full moon.
5. Donovan Wylie: Vision of Power @ Imperial War Museum
Photographs of war outposts across Northern Ireland, Afghanistan and the Arctic stand as the quiet sentries of war, both during and after the conflict is over.
