Isle of Dogs to Limehouse Cut and on to Hackney before entering the City and finding The Barbican.
Ducting outside The Barbican.
Bedwyr Williams at The Curve, Barbican. Installation evoking outside and intimate spaces.
Gunther Forg at Vilma Gold.
K P Brehmer at Vilma Gold. This is a swatch chart that was used (by the German authorities I think) to colour-match media articles. The assumption was that political agitators would create graphics that were darker brown the more extreme their content.
A new type of zebra crossing. Looks like artwork is by Camille Walala, the artist who does amazing building facades.
Phillipe Parreno of Pilar Corrias gallery showing at Tate Modern. Sound installation space.
Mark Titchner of Vilma Gold, showing public art on Southwark Street.
Great plaster-removal mural in Hackney.
Water processing building on the North Bank of the Thames opposite what used to be called the Millenium Dome. The decorative features and facade evoke (to my mind) classical forms associated with the Greek Parthenon as well as pop.
This week West to East. Then canal to Limehouse. Plus additional previous run to Casa Abierta at the Argentine Embassador’s residence.
Shezad Dawood Kalimpong at Timothy Taylor with images from past and present of this small town in Bengal worked together.
Amalia Pica of Herald Street showing at Casa Abierta.
Celia Paul at Victoria Miro. Wow! There is really very little there to create this striking image.
Erik Lindman at Almine Rech with steel sheet and paint images. The windows were opened to the gallery and the light coming through them accentuated the reflections on the metal including a line cut with angle grinder.
Tacita Dean at Frith Street Gallery filming David Hockney in his studio having a cig break.
Nigel Cooke at Pace Gallery with images transforming nature into iconic images of fire and the skull on base layers but layered atop with innocent flourishes from 19th century romanticism.
Alison Katz at The Approach with paintings that match up in part to stories she tells on the press release about road trip adventures and other experiences of travel and discovery.
John Cage musical score at Frith Street Gallery using systems of chance to make artistic decisions.
Patricio Forrester with Artmongers presents Political Swing at Casa Abierta at the Argentine ambassador’s residence.
Lambeth Bridge, Tate Britain, then west to RCA show 2016. North over Battersea bridge, Hyde Park and into the Serpentine Pavilion. Pizza in Goodge Street. East to Angel and along the Regent’s canal then south to Bloomberg Space. North to Carl Friedman then onto Herald Street. Finally to opening at Vilma Gold and then back south.
Jim Isermann of Corvi Mora at Bloomberg Space. Vinyl wall patterns and interacting objects.
Paula Linke Sunrise at Royal College of Art show 2016. Great placement by the sinks creates doubt!
Brian Griffiths at Vilma Gold. Checkered motif and cut up billboards gives a new take to previous tarpaulin works.
Wolfgang Tillmans at Maureen Paley.
Michael Stevenson at Carl Freedman. Flight simulator machine replicas take us on flight journeys and weave in a cultural narrative.
Pablo Bronstein of Herald Street at Tate Britain. Dancers perform against a classical setting of theatre backdrop and neoclassical colonnades.
David Schroeter The Seven Stones at Royal College of Art show 2016.
Checked out the galleries in the East. Portraits from Paul P, shiny surfaces in a group show called The Green Ray and Becky Beasley shows a carefully repaired drawer. Philipp Timischl has a delicate installation and finally some East End meters.
Turville Street near Brick Lane has these openly exposed gas meters that are an ever-changing prop in various works of street art.
Renee So at Kate MacGarry. The smoke plume mirrors the Assyrian beard in this tapestry. The figure is boot-like as a recurring motif.
Paul P at Maureen Paley.
Signed in at Laura Bartlett this morning about 12.25! This artefact is in the gallery itself.
Becky Beasley at Laura Bartlett. The drawer artwork is being fixed by her partner about whom the show is partly based.
Philipp Timischl at Vilma Gold. Good show.
Juliette Boneviot in The Green Ray at Wilkinson Gallery, which is also her gallery. The show is based on a rare 5 second (or so) phenomenon whereby the red setting sun appears green due to a sudden change in …. something!
A door on Vyner Street near Wilkinson Gallery.
Anna Barriball of Frith Street Gallery in The Green Ray, a show at Wilkinson Gallery. Thickly layered graphite on paper looks like a leaded sunday window.
