River Thames to Hackney.

589
Sam Durant at Sadie Coles HQ with protest slogans made beautiful in light boxes.

588
Claudio Parmiggiani at Simon Lee Gallery with a soot print made from a fire in a specially set up library. These prints are on boards that were placed behind the shelves and books and then the soot wafted through.

587
Roberto Matta at Robilant Voena with psychic landscapes and imagery that inspired the surrealists.

586
Rodney Graham at Canada Gallery in Canada House. A survey of his work.

Alicja Kwade at Whitechapel Gallery with celestial imagery using iPhones that rotate but continually use their orientation sensor to pick out the correct region of space in front of themselves to depict on the screen.

584
Jaki Irvine at Frith Street Gallery with a sound and video installation. It has a song she wrote herself in a traditional Irish style. Also there is an historic account of the 1916 Easter rising in Southern Island. Though risking execution as traitors many women took part and the artist celebrates them here.

Favourite photos from the archive.

19a1Georg Baselitz at White Cube. These studies of the artist and wife in watercolour are great.

19a3Chantal Joffe at Victoria Miro. Loved this painting photographed in March.

19a4Sterling Ruby at Spruth and Magers with art to wear. Loved the colours of this work photographed in May.

19a6Nam June Paik at Tate Modern. A favourite photo I took on a gallery run in April.

19a7Matt Copson at Wilkinson Gallery. Great expletive-punctuated monologue from Reynard the Fox. But done with shrewdness by the artist.

19a8

19a9Adam Buick at Corvi Mora in February. A favourite photo I hadn’t posted at the time. A solar system of pots.

189Giacometti at Gagosian showing with Yves Klein.

188Yoshimoto Nara at Stephen Friedman with new paintings in his smooth style.
