The Top 5 Art Exhibitions to see in London this week

Art critic Tabish Khan brings you the top art exhibitions to visit this week. Each one comes with a concise review to help you decide whether it’s for you. All are closing this week:

Triple Gong, ca. 1948. Brass, sheet metal, wire, and paint, 39 x 75 x 2 3/4 in. Alexander Calder @ Tate Modern Mobiles hang delicately and even the slightest movement can set them spinning. Calder was more than just his mobiles but that’s what we’re here for and they don’t disappoint. Until 3 April.  susanphillipsz Susan Philipsz: War Damaged Musical Instruments @ Tate Britain, Duveen galleries Haunting sounds of ‘wounded’ instruments from the battlefield struggle on bravely even though they are out of tune. A subtle and poignant tribute to those wounded and killed in war. Until 3 April. manzu Giacomo Manzu @ The Estorick Collection of Modern Italian Art Yet another Italian post-war artists I hadn’t heard of, but thanks to the Estorick I do now. Graceful flowing lines adorn his seated pope while two lovers look like they could be grappling in an energetic piece. A diverse and talented sculptor. Until 3 April.  rosangela Rosangela Renno: Rio-Montevideo @ The Photographers’ Gallery Photographs of protest and unrest in Latin America accompanied by a haunting music box rendition of the Communist Internationale. Politically heavy, yet still accessible. Until 3 April.  dir2015-008 Designers in Residence 2015: Migration @ Design Museum A prescient topic as four young designers ask what the future of the world will look like with increased migration. They cover dystopian evolution, the increased use of drones and how to cut hair in zero gravity. Until 3 April.

Ben Edmunds, It won’t last forever (or maybe it will)

‘It won’t last forever (or maybe it will)’ is Ben Edmunds’ solo debut in Europe and his most ambitious exhibition to date. Best known for his large scale paintings that combine tropes of modernist abstraction with the stylised accents of extreme sports, this show marks an expansion of possibilities in his practice. The works move between painting, sculpture, photography, branding, useful objects and wearable equipment.
