Art critic Tabish Khan brings you ‘The Top Art Exhibitions to see in London’ this week 19/08/18. Each one comes with a concise review to help you decide whether it’s for you. Hurry, as all close soon:
Notel by Lawrence Lek & Kode9 @ Arebyte
What will the future look like? Will it be tailored to our needs and does that mean there won’t be any other guests to bother us? Explore this ‘notel’ with a gamepad or through virtual reality to see this sterile and rather unsettling future hotel. Until 1 September.
Whether it be Nicola Sturgeon as the first female First Minister of Scotland or Nicola Adams as the first female boxer to win a gold medal, this photography exhibition brings together 100 remarkable women. From the Royal Navy to Savile Row all these women have been the first to achieve major goals in their fields. Until 22 August.
Different architectural styles are seamlessly collaged in these stunning lightboxes. As some of these works reference or feature elements of the museum itself, they are being displayed in the perfect venue. Until 26 August. Sea Creatures @ Lawrence Hall
Summer Show @ London City Island
An artist who slathers her face in paint before photographing it, capturing the essence of iconic London scenes and sitters floating in a sea of gold. This summer show by Degree Art and Trinity Art Gallery brings together some favourites of mine for a summer salon exhibition. Until 26 August.
