Must-See Art Guide: London
This week's guide features Hank Willis Thomas, Catherine Opie, Jeff Elrod, and more.
Frieze Week is upon us, making London fuller of galleries than ever. The fair is host to over 160 international galley powerhouses bringing together the very best in contemporary art in one blockbuster collector’s dream. Need help navigating the tent? We’ve got you covered. Want to know some of the hottest museum exhibitions in the city at the same time? We’ve got those too.
But not to be missed are the bevy of local gallery shows, and we’ve rounded up some of our favorites. From the new, bold graphic work of Hank Willis Thomas to the elegant photography on view at Prahlad Bubbar Ltd, there’s something for everyone and enough to keep you busy all week. Of particular note is the celebration of Lisson Gallery‘s 50th anniversary with the supergroup show “EVERYTHING AT ONCE.” Lisson has gathered 45 new and historic works by 24 of the artists represented by the historic gallery, and will feature some of the biggest, most spectacular installations you’re likely to find—inside London or out. It’s pretty unmissable.
