Check out our #6toSee for July 2017, a selection of six art exhibitions at some of the London’s best art galleries. Our critics pick the six must-see art exhibitions in London for this month. We hope you like them!
‘Future Archaeologies’ is a sculptural installation by Spanish artist Fran Meana that combines analog and digital techniques, contemporary art, visual anthropology and science fiction to construct an industrial archeology archive. The project takes the work of the architect Joaquín Vaquero Palacios (Oviedo 1900-Madrid 1998) as a starting point to explore our industrial past and approach the current debate on energy management.
Copperfield Gallery and SCAN present ‘Miseratione non mercede‘, with works by David Escalona, Julia Varela, Oscar Santillan and Marco Godoy. Translated to ‘compassion not gain’, the title draws on a Latin inscription in an old operating theatre. Hidden in the roof of the nearby St Thomas’s Church this was a space where those without money could receive pre-anaesthetic surgical treatment.
Copperfield gallery in London announces the first UK solo exhibition of Marco Godoy (b. 1986 Madrid) which follows his Royal College of Art MA (2014) and subsequent inclusion in group exhibitions at Palais de Tokyo and Centre Pompidou.
Pedro Font Alba is one of the fifty Spanish artists portrayed in ‘Art On The Move’. I had met this lively and energetic architect in several cultural events around London because he is one of the co-founders of SCAN (Spanish Contemporary Art Network), a platform that promotes Spanish artists where he is doing a remarkable job.
