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


1. Natural Selection @ Shapero Modern
Taxidermy animals are posed intelligently around this antique book store. Excellent examples are a wreath of poisonous snakes and lizards escaping from their vitrines.


2. Giles Walker @ Gallery 223
Walker returns with more macabre sculptures of bird skulls supplanted on top of miniature human skeletons. This time there is a centrepiece of a ship’s table complete with voice over and animatronics to create an atmospheric narrative.

3. Darwin’s Dream @ Crypt Gallery
Artist Koen Vanmechelen breeds chickens in this art project designed to mimic human evolution, a quirky exhibition featuring surreal sculpture, taxidermy and portraits.


4. Gerhard Richter @ Marian Goodman
The New York gallerist opens her fantastic new space in Soho and opts for the safe choice of Richter. The stand out pieces are the large scale stripe works that shimmer and play with your vision.

5. Exposure 14 @ Parasol Unit
Aside from the main exhibition make sure to check out this emerging art school graduates exhibition. The highlight is Jon Bakers’ close-up photographs of tiny objects that feel almost biological.

5 NYC Exhibitions for Celebrating Spring

Most New York galleries close at 6 p.m. Brooklyn-based art writer Vittoria Benzine has dutifully applied that control variable the past few months, recording photons and watching the days get longer by the week. Daylight savings only amplifies what naturally happens this time of year — and after a two week grace period for Benzine’s annual energetic thrashing at the hands of the vernal equinox, she emerged again to see what the sky looked like at 6 p.m. Pretty amazing.
