Tabish Khan the @LondonArtCritic picks his favourite top 5 exhibitions to see before the end of 2022. Each one comes with a concise review to help you decide whether it’s for you. Those looking for more shows should check out his top five exhibitions to see in December, where all remain open to visit.
Bringing together photography, collage and painting Suzanne Moxhay creates these post-apocalyptic scenes where nature reclaims interiors that appear to have been abandoned by humans. They are stunning pieces and take on an extra resonance post-lockdown. Until 21 December.
Have you noticed that if a woman is shown in green it’s either to be feared or sexualised – think Wicked Witch of the West or She-Hulk, both in the latter’s case. Rebecca Parkin counters this idea and creates a temple-like space, filled with red light, that gives her series of green women a respectful home – complete with shrine. Until 18 December.
This pop up in a shopping centre is stuffed full of hundreds of work by 70 artists, selling at affordable prices for those looking to art-en up your Christmas. I happen to own works by many of the fantastic artists in the show and even bought some more from this exhibition. Until 18 December.
You can’t have the festive season without some gingerbread, and the Museum of Architecture has gone one better and made an entire city out of it split into five climate zones complete with running trains and cable cars. It’s an annual evolving installation and it’s an impressive year for it. Until 2 January.
Tis the season for light festivals to break out everywhere and the two sites owned by Kew really deliver this year. With a much longer trail at Kew Gardens that has clearly learned some lessons from Wakehurst’s equally impressive lengthy trail that’s worth the trip outside London for. Until 1 January & 8 January.
