The Art Events to visit this week in London from @Londonartmap

WEEK: 18th – 24th August

There are loads of art events such as private views, artists talks, and screenings happening around London, usually, but its August now and barely any events are happening. To help you with the choice Jenny Judova from Art Map London will be advising on what events seem worth attending during the week.


Vitrine, 6-9pm private view Eleni Bagaki, Stéphane Blumer, Heena Kim and Soomeen Kim 
183 – 185 Bermondsey Street, London SE1 3UW 
VITRINE residency offers four artists – with cross-disciplinary practices – the space, support and opportunity to make work towards an exhibition at the gallery in August 2014. Artists-in-residence Eleni Bagaki, Stéphane Blumer, Heena Kim and Soomeen Kim have diverse practices yet their proposals had elements of responding in – situ while continuing to explore independent narratives.
Conversations about the local, its people, history, symbols and inevitably its transformation are starting points of the exhibition. The exhibition reveals how they develop this narrative over the residency.

Canal Café Theatre, Delamere Terrace, Little Venice, London, W2 6ND
