The most interesting art events to see in London this week (24/10)

There are lots of art events happening in London; talks, workshops, tours, discussions and many many more! To help you with the choice Jenny Judova from Art Map London has picked ‘The Most Interesting Art Events’ to see in London this week.

 

TUESDAY 24 OCTOBER

Preview: ‘Carved, Cast, Constructed: British Sculpture 1951 – 1991’

6:00 PM – 8:00 PM @ Marlborough Fine Art, 6 Albemarle St, Mayfair, London, W1S 4BY

Marlborough Fine Art is pleased to present a survey exhibition tracing the developments of post-war British sculpture from 1951-1991. From Henry Moore (1898-1986) and Barbara Hepworth (1903-1975) to later artists Eduardo Paolozzi (1924-2005) and Anthony Caro (1924-2013), this exhibition traces the visual arts in Britain as they spawned an increasingly rapid succession of theories and styles.

 

WEDNESDAY 25 OCTOBER

Preview: Scott McCracken ‘Big Crunch’

6:00 PM – 8:30 PM @ Darbyshire, 19-23 White Lion Street, London, N1 9PD

Darbyshire Ltd, in association with Turps Banana present a solo show of work by Scott McCracken, winner of the Darbyshire Prize for Emerging Art 2017.

THURSDAY 26 OCTOBER

Preview: Stan Douglas

6:00 PM – 8:00 PM @ Victoria Miro Mayfair, 14 St George St,, Mayfair, London, W1S 1FH

The first in a new series of works triggered by the uprisings of the early 2010s, including the Arab Spring and riots across global locations including London and the artist’s home town of Vancouver, these photographs focus on scenes associated with events in August 2011, when thousands of people rioted across London boroughs: in Tottenham, where protests started following the shooting by police of Mark Duggan, and Hackney Downs, where events were focused around the Pembury Estate.

 

FRIDAY 27 OCTOBER

Halloween Friday Late

7:00 PM – 10:00 PM @ Handel and Hendrix in London, 25 Brook Street, Mayfair, London, W1K 4HB

On the first floor, in Handel’s Music Room, a narrative will unfold from performances of some of Handel’s more otherworldly operatic pieces. An extra level of mystery is added with the knowledge that before opening to the public in 2001, Handel House organised an exorcism to be carried out by a local priest after volunteers and members of staff felt a presence in these 18th century rooms.
