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!
For this exhibition Juan delGado travelled to Greece, Macedonia and Calais to record the journeys taken by refugees. delGado has not filmed these ‘invisible’ people but the places they have passed through and the traces of their existence they have left.

‘The Flickering Darkness (Revisited)’ is a film by Spanish artist Juan delGado exploring the journey that food produce takes from its arrival before dawn at the Corabastos market in Bogotà, Colombia to its consumption across the social spectrum.
Juan Delgado, Ringing Forest in Jerwood Open Forest.
Juan is a multidisciplinary artist living in London. His introspective work explores the intimate reality of life, the inner world of cities, of different cultures, and of people. Given that art is a natural extension of the artist, we observe in each of Delgado’s projects a high degree of profound self-examination and as such, we see individuals interacting in a given milieu, be it a forest, the sea or a city, through an entirely subjective prism. Delgado typically works with photography and film. In previous projects he has used three giant screens running simultaneously to project footage of various subject matters: a fearless tetraplegic woman navigating a sailing boat down the La Mancha Canal; the relationship between an individual and the violent society (such as that in certain suburbs of Bogota) in which he lives; a fascinating study of the Palestinians and their daily struggle against Israeli occupation.
