Exhibition Roundup - November, 2010

An occasional, and highly selective, pick of current and forthcoming exhibitions.

Sarah Lucas, Nud (24), 2010

The British Art Show 7: In the Days of the Comet has opened in various venues across Nottingham (until 9th Jan, 2011) and has received some very positive reviews (see Adrian Searle and Laura Cumming). Particularly well received has been the work of Sarah Lucas (above) and Christian Marclay’s film, “The Clock”. (This can also been seen at White Cube, Mason’s Yard until 13th November.)

An exhibition of the work of Gerhard Richter is showing at The New Walk Museum and Gallery in Leicester, until 27th February 2011. This is one of the ‘Artists’ Rooms’ donated to the nation by Anthony d’Offay.

Myth, Manners and Memory: Photographers of the American South is showing at the wonderful De La Warr Pavilion in Bexhill on Sea, until 3rd January 2011. The exhibition includes work by Walker Evans, William Eggleston, William Christenberry, Carrie Mae Weems, Alec Soth, Susan Lipper and others. The De La Warr Pavilion, designed by Erich Mendelsohn and Serge Chermayeff, built in 1935, restored in 2005, is one of the Modernist gems of English architecture.

In London, Rirkrit Tiravanija is at Pillar Corias. Tiravanija has been associated with 'Relational Aesthetics' (see Nicolas Bourriaud (2003) Relational Aesthetics, Dijon: Les Presse du Réel) - his previous work has included preparing meals for gallery visitors. This show features 2 works: an 8 hour video charting a day in the life of Leung Neaw, an elderly Thai man, and a 35mm slide installation showing the gallery director recounting a day in her life for the duration of a working day.

Angela Bulloch has also been associated with Relational Aesthetics and is showing new sculptures, Discrete Manifold Whatsoever, at Simon Lee (until 27th November).

Richard Wentworth: Three Guesses, will be at the Whitechapel Gallery, 6th November – 30th January 2011, and promises to investigate perceptions and misperceptions of length and volume, and string!

The Courtauld Gallery has put together a show which brings together, for the first time, a group of Paul Cézanne’s paintings of card players. See 3 short videos about the work on the Courtauld’s website. The exhibition will run until 16th January 2011.
