Opening Of The Week
An American artist Mark Dion is also well-known as a talented collector and a passionate explorer. He has travelled a lot around the world with a goal to explore the beauty as well as fragility of life on our earth. The “Theatre of the Natural World” exhibition at the Whitechapel gallery reveals new angles and treasures of the natural environments through the artist’s drawings, sculptures and prints created between 2000 and the present time.
The show will be on view until 08th April 2018, at the White Cube, Bermondsey, 144 – 152 Bermondsey Street, London SE1 3TQ
This site-specific installation will take place on two floors of the abandoned Savoy Cinema, an Art Deco building that’s been largely unused since the mid-1980s. This is the first artistic collaboration of two friends Richard Russell and Toby Ziegler, featuring collages, new three screen video work, computer generated landscapes as well as immersive sculptural installation, which will function as a stage for various collaborators of the show. There will be a number of live shows and live rehearsals to attend during the week, including the Everything Is Recorded’s live performance on 15th February.
This installation will be on view from 14th to 17th February 2018, Hackney Arts Centre, 11 – 17 Stoke Newington Road, London N16 8BH.
Time To Book
The British Library invites its’ visitors to enjoy a very special performance, which includes both musical accompaniment and storytelling. Each story is of a different length but each is to be read exactly one minute long and is either written by John Cage or collected by him from friends and colleagues. All of 60 the stories and musical works are performed simultaneously but without attempt whatsoever to synchronize any activities, which creates the coincidence and an unrepeatable vibe of indeterminacy during performance.
This performance will be happening on Friday 16th February at 7 PM at the British Library, 96 Euston Road, London, NW1 2DB
Hymn For The Weekend
Jazz has provoked and influenced greatly on the changes in British society in the aftermath of the First World War. The charm of this music united musicians and artists of different colour and origin. The Arts Society in partnership with Two Temple Place celebrate 100 years of jazz in the UK and bring together paintings, prints, films, textiles and ceramics of the various British artists who have been especially inspired by the sounds of jazz music.
The exhibition is on view until 22nd April 2018 at Two Temple Place, London WC2R 3BD
Last Chance To See
There is last week to see a first London-based solo exhibition of an American artist Matt Saunders. This show brings together his oil on chiffon paintings, photographs as well as artist’s large-scale animation installations. Saunders’ passion is to explore new techniques of the medium by connecting painting, photography and printmaking to the moving image.
The show will be on view until 17th February at the Marian Goodman Gallery, 5-8 Lower John Street, London, W1F 9DY
