Gallery run 22nd May

1311
Zaha Hadid design for the Sackler Gallery where we met for a press view this morning.

1312
Luchita Hurtado at The Serpentine Gallery with beautiful studies of light. There are also fine figurative works and amazing abstracts in this retrospective of a woman who met artists from all the great artistic movements of the last century whilst resolutely pursuing her own ideas.

1313
Anish Kapoor at Lisson Gallery with large scale stone works exhibited in the gallery’s courtyard. They look stunning in the summer sun.

1314
Jason Martin at Lisson Gallery with bands of paint that remind me of newly laid snow snagging occasionally on small protrusions.

1315
Fergus Polglase at Central Saint Martins graduate show. Great tongue-in-cheek abstract painting of a motorbike road trip.

1316
Navid Nuur at Parasol Unit with blown up doodles from those scribble pads where customers try out the new pens. We are all graffiti artists when we are not thinking about it.

1317
Frank Bowling at Hales Gallery with abstracts reminiscent of the artist’s native Grenada. A warning is struck too as the iridescent water sometimes has rubbish strewn across the surface portrayed playfully by collage.

1318
Near Brick Lane. Was in the prospect of a bagel or this fab mural that injected energy into those flagging limbs?

1319
Sarah Morris at White Cube Gallery with an installation that reminds me of artificial intelligence.

Zaha Hadid at the Winton Gallery of the Science Museum.

Richard Oelze at Michael Werner with slightly surreal landscapes.

Zaha Hadid early paintings at Serpentine Gallery. This is London with a skewed viewpoint in the artist’s customary (as we discover) style.

455
Gavin Turk with his famous blue plaque given pride of place in Newport Street Gallery. There is plenty more and a great show.

456
Huma Bhabha at Stephen Friedman with carved polystyrene figures.

457
Lee Friedlander at Pace Gallery with an ironic take on the subject object relationship in photography. It’s his shadow not mine!

Peter Peri at Almine Rech with circular heads on the bronzes made of cast tape rolls and loo rolls.

459
David Shrigley of Stephen Friedman Gallery exhibiting on the 4th plinth.
