Gallery run 27th May

Visited Art 16 earlier in the week, then did the run. Tower Bridge, Brick Lane and Regent’s Canal. West past Kings Cross and Regent Street to Lisson Grove and along to Lisson Gallery. South to Timothy Taylor, Victoria Miro, Golden Square and Frith Street Gallery. South over Lambeth Bridge, across Walworth Road and through Burgess Park.
211At Art16. Alfredo and Isabela Quilizan produced these flip-flop angel wings.

218Cory Arcangel at Lisson Gallery. The digital displays are altered, the software hacked. The alphabet of corporate symbols is appropriated by the artist.

217Jean Dubuffet at Timothy Taylor. These fab sculptures grew out of red and blue biro doodles, we are told. The artist had made them whilst on the phone.

216Yayoi Kusama at Victoria Miro.

215Massimo Bartolini at Frith Street Gallery. The artist’s sound piece is played on this record player crowned with a brass cube. This unusual addition pays homage to Golden Square, the location of the gallery.

214Dora Maurer at White Cube. The hands form an alphabet of gestures.

213Stephane Graff at Almine Rech. A juxtaposition of text and image that is intended to jar one with the other.

212Galleryrunner saw this house connected to a railway arch near Walworth Road.

219Stanley Whitney at Lisson Gallery. These pastel grids put beauty before formalism.
