Tabish’s Top 5 Art Exhibitions to see in London this week

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. Prix Pictet @ V&A

1801-690x484

An impressive and diverse set of photographers in the shortlist, all on the theme of consumption. The winner Michael Schmidt wasn’t to my liking but his victory is timely given he passed away shortly after receiving the award.

2. Comics Unmasked: Art and Anarchy in the UK @ British Library

Diceman No5, by Pat Mills and Hunt Emerson (c) REBELLION AS All Rights Reserved

Are comic books artworks? The jury’s still out on this one but this exhibition is jam packed full of information to help make that decision

3. Polke-Richter / Richter-Polke

Two twentieth century German heavyweights play off each other in yet again another solid showing from Christie’s Mayfair. Great to see the old Haunch of Venison gallery being put to good use.

4. Ai Weiwei @ Lisson Gallery

New works but not really exploring any new themes. Despite this, Weiwei continues to produce political art whose weight remains undiminished due to his house arrest.

5. David Hockney: The Arrival of Spring @ Annely Juda Fine Art

If you missed his Royal Academy spectacular, here’s a chance to see more of his iPad sketches, the black and white drawings on the lower floor are a little disappointing but the colourful top floor residents still manage to engage despite their relatively small size.

Papercutting is a traditional Chinese art going back 2,000 years. The coloured, intricately cut papers are used as a story-telling medium in festivities, for prayers, and as everyday decoration. The bags and scarves take their motifs from a papercut created by Ai Weiwei as part of his Papercut Portfolio published by TASCHEN in 2019.
