With her focus on quiet domestic interiors and sensitive portraits of women, Gwen has long been seen as a shy recluse, but this show makes clear that she was anything but.
This show is billed as bringing together a group of younger artists ‘experimenting with colour, mark and form, to create moments of joy’, but while there is much to enjoy here it is hard to find commonalities.
On the occasion of her latest exhibition at Thomas Dane’s Naples gallery, the ever-probing Sillman considers her enduring fascination with process, impatience with beauty, and why humour is the key to life.
The Berlin-based Japanese painter touches on her interest in patterns of structures and texture, a knowing circumvention of figuration and the magic of painting.
An invigorating survey of the French art and dance collective explores how dance binds communities together.
In the first New York retrospective of the artist’s work, covering almost five decades, she offers a view of US history, geography and government policy through an Indigenous lens.
Are we free to make our own decisions in an age in which technology is used to manipulate us? Curator Giorgio Olivero hopes the works of the six artists in this show will make us more aware and therefore better able to break free of technological control.
Ceramic, bronze and video works spanning 20 years of Leigh’s practice, including nine works from last year’s Venice Biennale, give power to the strength, endurance and knowledge of Black women.
This exhibition is both broader and narrower than its title suggests. In a nutshell, it brings together undeniably beautiful – if, on reflection, a little disturbing – poetry and paintings about obsessive love.
This exhibition is a joy, combining leaflets, flyers and other ephemera from Debord and Wolman’s period of collaborative working and their Lettrist International project, as well as artworks that Wolman created after the two had parted ways.
Stewart takes into account the contingencies of ambient light, her works iridescent, shimmering between hues and moods depending on the moment, and on where you stand.
The E-Werk’s Turbine Hall is the perfect setting for Freije’s new figurative metal sculptures. This vast venue opened up new possibilities for her work, she says, explaining the ideas behind her figures and how using lighting designers has been transformational.
They never met or even knew of one another’s work, yet they are united by a belief in theosophy and divine nature and a penchant for abstract painting.
This young painter, fresh out of the Royal College of Art, has already developed her own, very distinctive way of method of painting, producing vivid and dramatic textured works.

A scruffy old armchair, two grubby basketballs, ventilation panels, dirty white walls – it’s unsettling, not what you expect of a show. But this sense of discomfiture is exactly what Smith wants you to feel.
Having set up Studio Seilern Architects in 2006, Christina Seilern has been quietly building a solid body of elegant, spatially ambitious buildings and is now garnering the industry accolades she deserves. She talks about storytelling, sexism, slow regeneration and prioritising interesting work.
Scotland’s oldest public museum has “reframed” its historic collection to recognise Glasgow’s links to empire, slavery and colonialism.
Charting 40 years of the film-maker’s career, this exhibition immerses its audience in slavery, immigration and homophobia. This is cultural activism at its best.
Ai has a genius for incorporating pieces of everyday design into his work as a form of protest at government oppression and corruption, or as a means of questioning our cultural fixations. And where better to parade that talent than at London’s Design Museum, in this career-spanning retrospective?.
While some might be quick to dismiss #WallaceWoofs as kitsch and gimmicky, it is a well-founded and well-grounded exhibition – and gets the lick of approval from my four-legged companion.
Colour, gesture and expression permeate the works of Chaïm Soutine and Leon Kossoff, but this exhibition cleverly allows each artist to be seen on his own terms.
Contemporary Japanese artists celebrate their country’s traditional ancient crafts using natural products as well as looking to the future of design.
