Tabish Khan the @LondonArtCritic picks five exhibitions to see online, which are all in physical spaces that we should be able to visit after lockdown. Each one comes with a concise review to help you decide whether it’s for you. Those looking for more online exhibitions should see last week’s pick of online exhibitions.
The London House of Modernity featuring Stephen Friedman Gallery
Beautiful modern designs paired up with striking artworks including Yinka Shonibare’s colourful figures. How could this pairing of Modernity and Stephen Friedman Gallery be better? By sticking it all within a stunning Georgian mansion, that’s how. It’s all been installed and I can’t wait to visit once it’s safe to do so. For now we can ascend through four curated floors and experience it all virtually. Until 2 April.
Raphael Cartoons @ V&A
One of the most impressive items in the V&A collection are these seven magnificent large scale tapestry designs. Until we can see them in person the museum website recounts their story online and how it links to pivotal moments in European history. Plus there’s an interactive tool that allows us to slide across each and see the underdrawings under infrared light.
Edward Twohig: Super Moon @ Eames Fine Art
Moonlit landscapes appear all the more vivid and ghostly when under a super moon, i.e. when the moon is at its largest and brightest. These prints perfectly capture the quiet and often haunting feeling of a moonlit night in a forest – forest bathing through art. Until 7 March
Crafting a Difference @ Soshiro
Another excellent exhibition across four floors is this crafty collection of more than 200 works in ceramic, glass, metal, paper, textile, plastic and wood by over seventy artists. There are beautiful objects at every turn all displayed within a Georgian townhouse in Marylebone. Until 2 April.
Nicola Green: Unity @ Zuleika Gallery
With the world feeling very divided right now we need works such as these that are a celebration of the democratic process, a commemoration of change, and a symbol of hope. Nicola Green’s works bring people together as hands unite and Obama is shown as a John Wayne type figure. Until 14 March
