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. And if you haven’t seen them yet, most of last week’s top 5 are still open to visit as well:
Works of art or beautifully crafted piece of furniture? It doesn’t really matter how you categorise these pieces. Either way a sheep seat or a goat desk looks great, whether it’s decorative or functional. Until 26 January.
Painstakingly multi-layered paintings are fascinating to investigate, as if the paintings themselves have decayed. The painting of the house in a forest is stunning. Until 26 January.
Cork totems tower over visitors and form the main works in this show across both gallery spaces. Dark, striking and memorable. Until 28 January.
Dan Hillier takes his black and white prints in new more mystical direction, inspired by a recent trip to Peru. Lots of intricate details merit greater exploration of each work. Until 30 January.
Two artists whose works we’ve admired in the past join forces to create a surreal world including a giant baby walker and a baby made from chains. Until 28 January.
