WEEK: 14th-20th April
There are loads of art events such as private views, artists talks, and screenings happening around London, and often it is impossible to choose where to go and what to see. To help you with the choice Jenny Judova from Art Map London will be advising on what events seem worth attending during the week.
TUESDAY 15 APRIL
Work Gallery, 6:30-8pm book launch American Artifacts
Phil Bergerson in conversation with Marco Bohr, followed by a book signing
American Artifacts’ is a brilliant exhibition that shows the weirdness of America by introducing the artefacts Americans leave behind, so the book launch is definitely worth visiting.

David Roberts Art Foundation, 7-9pm private view Michael Simpson ‘Study 6’
Performance by Tim Etchells 7:30-8:30pm
I like DRAF and the phrase ‘An in-depth study of the work of British artist Michael Simpson, focussing on his Bench painting series (1989-2009)’ and the images of weird benches got me hooked.
WEDNESDAY 16 APRIL
Massimo De Carlo, 6-8pm private view ‘Furniture’ group show and Max Bill solo show
2-in-1 private groups are always my weakness, you get to visit two shows without leaving the building. The good news about this opening is that so far Massimo de Carlo did not disappoint my expectations, and their space is stunning!
Artists exhibited at the ‘Furniture group show are: Rob Pruitt, Andra Ursuta, Kaari Upson, Josh Smith and Thomas Grünfeld
THURSDAY 17 APRIL
IMT, 7-9pm performance Clare Gasson entitled ‘To and for AT/October 2013/the seed in the chain of thoughts/calling up the spirit of the infinite/endless/equations/renamed March 2014?
IMT is a strong supporter of new media art which already makes them worth knowing of. Thei current show ‘Shaken from the Sky’ is a mixture of 2d and installations, and Iam curious to see what performance will they put on.
Rob Tufnell Gallery, 6-9pm private view Henning Bohl ‘Kadath Fatal’
Rob Tufnell is a nice gem of a gallery giden in James Park. And the name of the exhibition is brilliant!
The title of the exhibition references a mythical peak where gods dwell ‘in the cold waste where no man treads’ described in H.P.Lovecraft’s ‘The Dream Quest of Unknown Kadath’ (1926/27).
