A month-by-month journey through Picasso’s ‘year of wonders’. Until September the 9th.
First ever solo exhibition of Pablo Picasso’s work at Tate Modern, one of the most significant shows the gallery has ever staged. The ‘EY Exhibition: Picasso 1932 : Love, Fame, Tragedy’ takes visitors on a month-by-month journey through 1932, a time so pivotal in Picasso’s life and work that it has been called his ‘year of wonders’. More than 100 outstanding paintings, sculptures and works on paper will demonstrate his prolific and restlessly inventive character. They strip away common myths to reveal the man and the artist in his full complexity and richness.

Getting down to writing about Mª José Arceo’s latest artistic project ‘Future Dust’ is as difficult as trying to sum it up in just a few lines. If it’s an origin story you’re after, you could say that it all started with 2014’s eXXpedition Crew, which set sail for Martinique from Lanzarote, crossing the Atlantic as part of UNESCO’s Atlantic Odyssey. 14 women embarked on the journey: scientists, designers, film-makers, biologists, ecologists, and an artist, María. With the help of her expedition partners, she was able to explore the impact of microplastics on our environment and our lives. To achieve this, she started to gather up all the microplastics that she came across in order to create little crystal installations that would be shown in her future exhibits. Anyone who sees one of these artistic interventions finds themselves faced with a poignant story about microplastics that begins and ends with us.
Exhibition: ‘If I do nothing’ (Matt Calderwood, Stephanie Mann and Josep Maynou) curated by Luz Massot
At SCAN Project Room. From 19 April until 20 May 2018. London.
It has been observed that a condition of impending doom haunts millennial culture. How quickly the dark omens become real (or unreal or are for now deferred) remains to be seen. There is a kind of anxiety in a state of negative anticipation, and yet a dark pleasure, but it is evident we feel ourselves at a threshold. The aim of this exhibition is to stimulate a mutual energy, a static spark in still air like a state of expectation or risk.
Maddox Arts presents Dionisio González’s first solo exhibition in London. In order to introduce Dionisio González’s works to the London public, they will be showing two of his series “Dauphin Island” and “Inter-action”.
González shows in his works ‘surrealistic’ architecture in a natural landscape. His visionary constructions are close to Le Corbusier, projects of buildings made out of béton brut and futuristic visions of cities inspired by Japanese metabolism architecture especially Kenzo Tange and Kisho Kurokawa. But González does not limit himself only to architecture sketches. He is exploring any kind of art, getting inspiration from Italian Futurist movement, Giorgio de Chirico’s archways and Xavier Corberó’s architectural sculptures.
Since the beginning of this month we have a great exhibition at Victoria Miro Gallery in London, a show comprising paintings and an installation of lamps by the Mexico-based Cuban-American artist Jorge Pardo.
Flamenco Festival London, Sadler’s Wells’ renowned annual season of flamenco dance and music returns. In a fortnight featuring 12 unique shows and film screenings, audiences will be able to enjoy performances from some of the world’s most outstanding flamenco talent.
The Spanish artist Olga Diego is doing from today (16/01/18-12h) an artistic experiment that aims to explore the limits of the mind in a creative process. She is, since 12:00 noon, drawing at SCAN project Room in London, without stopping for as many days as her mind-body can resist without taking any rest.
Diego will not stop drawing even while eating, drinking, or doing any kind of physiological activity. She will take the paper with her and continue drawing at the same time. She will create a space with no imposed time limit, and where the creative mind could reach unknown places. Nor will she stop drawing in order to sleep because she will stay awake and draw day and night.
An experiment that maybe could answer questions such as: What is the mind capable of creating in an unknown context, or when it is subjected to extreme exhaustion? What are we able to draw when we do not have a time limit for it? As here the artist’s mind will be placed between absolute freedom and the limitation of its own capacity and resistance. How will this be reflected in the graphic image on paper? This graphic document together with the audio-visual documentation of the action will be material of a later study.
The action will be shown on live streaming on Internet until the end. This way, viewers will be able to see the action not only in the same exhibition space, but also on their computer from anywhere in the world, and at any time while the action is taking place.
The result will be a transcription of the different states of mind in the shape of graphic creation. These drawings will be on exhibit at the SCAN PROJECT ROOM from 20 January until 3 February.
