We have rounded up a selection of upcoming shows for you to see brought to you in a regular weekly snapshot
In the coming week there is: Sarah Sze Victoria Miro Mayfair: Opening 30 January – 14 March Wharf Road: Opening 30 January – 28 March United States representative at the 2013 Venice Biennial, Sarah Sze, is having her third solo show at the Victoria Miro gallery. Sze’s interest in art and architecture has formed into her acclaimed sculptural practice often working throughout gallery infrastructures, through walls, floors and ceilings. Her show at the Victoria Miro stretches all three main spaces utilising a myriad of everyday objects that put to question our relationships with memory, information systems and human behaviour. The Wharf Road Galleries features a reconfigured work previously produced in conjunction with Sze’s residency at the Fabric Workshop and Museum in Philadelphia. These include installations looking at the relationship between space, time, mass and perspective, summoning notions akin to Einstein’s general theory of relativity. At the Mayfair Gallery, a spread of small sculptures reveals Sze’s exploration of the often slippery nature of mapping, dissecting and understanding information. http://www.victoria-miro.com/exhibitions/468/ Victoria Miro Mayfair 14 St.George Street London W1S 1FE —————————————————— The Violet Crab at DRAF David Roberts Art Foundation Opening 6 February – 2 May 2015 An extravagant and exciting new show looking at the culture of cabaret past and present. The Violet Crab, designed and directed by artist Than Hussein Clark brings together new commissions, live performances and works from the David Roberts Collection. By bringing together the ‘black box’ of traditional theatre to the ‘white cube’ of conventional galleries, The Violet Crab merges these two worlds, rearranging hierarchies relative to each respective heritage through a combination of subject, object and performance. The structures and architecture of the gallery is reconfigured in an exhibition where spaces become cloakroom, bar, stage and shadow theatre. Over sixty works from the David Roberts Collection features in this show inclucing many unseen works.

Guggenheim Museum, New York Opening 6 February – 3 May 2015 The personal experience of the passage of time and space has been celebrated as Kawara’s most seminal works; as well as marking the rise of conceptual art. With the cooperation of the artist until his recent death, On Kawara – Silence for the first time brings together every category of Kawar’s output starting from 1964, such as date paintings (the Today series); postcards (the I Got Up series) and telegrams (the I Am Still Alive series) among others. The Guggenheim will also present Kawara’s famous One Million Years, a durational performance reciting dates from a vast ledger. http://www.guggenheim.org/new-york/exhibitions/upcoming/on-kawara-silence Solomon R.

Known for his breathtaking live performative installation and video works replete with music, Kjartansson collaborated with Icelandic musician Davíð Þór Jónsson at The Banff Centre, Alberta to produce The End – a five channel video installation shot in the Rocky Mountains. The installation is synched with a single piece of mangled country music, which along with the video footage, was recorded in several pastoral and magnificant locations along Banff, Alberta. This show presents the beginning of a partnership between Kjartansson and MOCAD. http://www.mocadetroit.org/upcomingexhibitions.html Museum of Contemporary Art Detroit 4454 Woodward Ave Detroit MI 48201 —————————————————— 2015 Random Access Nam June Paik Arts Centre Opening 29 January – 31 May 2015 Nam June Paik’s definition of an artist as ‘One who speculates about the future’ is taken as the cohesive theme among the new generation of twelve artists on show at the NJPAC.
