1. Richard Serra @ Gagosian, Brittania St
Monumental steel sculptures that are intimidating and mimic a powerful religious experience. A fantastic installation on the topic of life and death.

4. David Altmejd: Faces @ Modern Art
Grotesque and surreal faces inventively sculpted out of crystals, fruit and various other materials provide a visual feast of ‘anti-faces’.
