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 month:
Master Graphics: The Art of Printmaking @ Halcyon Gallery
The Mayfair gallery follows up an excellent collection of Warhol prints with another fantastic selection of prints. This exhibition includes Hockney, Lichtenstein and Picasso. Plus printing sessions will be happening in the gallery on weekends. Until 31 July.
I Am Not Tino Sehgal @ Nahmad Projects
Only two days left of this revolutionary show for this newly opened Cork street gallery. 30 days of performance art with each day presenting a new artist’s concept. We’ve had ‘cleaners’ vacuuming the floor, a story told on a bed and a great game of Chinese whispers. Until 20 July.
Wendy Mayer: Curious Room @ Charlie Smith London
Creepy baby sculptures has scarily realistic looking babies transformed into coat hangars and heads peeping out of shells. It’s a truly disconcerting and brilliant exhibition. Until 30 July.
Stephane Graff: A Catalogue of Errors @ Almine Rech
The traditional art catalogue has been subverted so that a text on Da Vinci sits next to an image of a Rodin sculpture, and similarly Rembrandt with Picasso. It’s a critique of on how everyone always gravitates to labels instead of engaging with the artwork first, and how we often take the text as gospel. Until 30 July
James Balmforth @ Hannah Barry
I’ve always been a fan of this artist’s exploration of the material. Whether it be reflective sheets of metal or concrete blocks, the seemingly organic mutation of the original forms is impressive. Until 30 July.
