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 exhibitions close this week.


Sunken Cities @ The British Museum
This blockbuster has been extremely popular, and for good reason. It’s a stunning collection of artefacts discovered beneath the sea and how well they’ve been preserved is astonishing. One of the major exhibitions of the year. Until 27 November.


The Middle – Tom Ellis @ The Wallace Collection
The perfect painter to be placed in the Wallace Collection. Traditional seeming paintings can be moved along rails and furniture can be flipped from being a chair to a table. It hits the sweet spot of feeling at home, yet offering something different to the collection. Until 27 November.


Shoplifting: Lucy Sparrow @ Lawrence Alkin
The felt artists returns with a show of works, all reflecting the most shoplifted items from bacon to pregnancy tests. Until 26 November.


James Capper & Shaun McDowell @ Hannah Barry
Two very different artists, but both impress. The mechanical creations of Capper are always great. While the colourful abstract paintings from McDowell are a new find for me. Until 30 November.


Iain Nutting @ Rebecca Hossack
Animal sculptures, made from reclaimed scrap metal, look great as well as commenting on the conflict between technology and environment. Until 26 November.

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.
