Tabish Khan the @LondonArtCritic picks five exhibitions to see online this month. Each one comes with a concise review to help you decide whether it’s for you. Readers should also check out his top 5 art initiatives.
Tonight the Air is Warm @ Kristin Hjellegjerde
This exhibition of artists from Southeast Asia brings together some stunning works including this dramatically lit playground photographed by Sarah Choo Jing and the ethereal views of nature by Genevieva Chua. Curated by Tolla Duke Sloane it’s introduced me to some fantastic artists. Until 27 March.
Hosting art fairs online means they can remain on display for longer – case in point Collect 2021 which is running for a month. This fair for contemporary craft and design is virtually jam-packed with beautifully made glass and ceramic artworks, and tapestries hosted on Artsy. Until 24 March.
Kim Tschang-Yeul: Water Drops @ Almine Rech
Zoom right in to these paintings to see the detail in the hyper-real drops of water. It’s as if you could swipe across the painting and come away with with the drops on your fingers. This is the first posthumous survey of the Korean artist’s meditative works. Until 10 April.
Prelude: An ArtCan virtual exhibition*
Whether it be a sneaking look at the outside through a gap in the curtains or a man seemingly adrift on ice in an escapist fantasy, this show brings together over 50 artists in this exhibition imbued with hope for a brighter 2021. Until 23 March.
Art on a postcard for International Women’s Day
With International Women’s Day around the corner what better way to mark it than a postcard auction featuring over 450 works by women artists, with the proceeds going to a worthwhile cause. Visitors can bid on the works or simply browse the fantastic works on display. Until 11 March.
