Einat Amir: I Will Be Your Guide for This Session
Aspect/Ratio 
Opening 24 April – 30 May 2015
 
This exhibition marks Einat Amir’s first solo show in Chicago and her inaugural exhibition with Aspect/Ratio. Amir primarily works through video and performance, aiming to produce a meeting ground for sociopolitical issues. This show takes two groups of participants at a time and sets them on a journey of psychoanalytical and physical exercises and discovery. Employing scientific methodologies, Amir’s social experiment involves intuitive improvisation, physical interaction and a display of video documentations, two of which were previously shown at Performa13.

Thomas Struth
Marian Goodman Gallery
Opening 29 April – 6 June 2015
 
Struth’s first solo show in London since 2011 consists of a selection of new photographic works merged together from two different recent projects. They includes photographs made in Israel and Palestine as well as ones of scientific and technological research in California. His images meet the challenge of condensing an epic narrative into a still image, exploring human drama and its relation to place.

Tal R: Chimney School of Sculpture
Victoria Miro: Gallery I
Opening 23 April – 30 May 2015
 
An exhibition of new work by Copenhagen-based artist Tal R. The artist describes his methodology of collecting vast amounts of imagery, figurative and abstract, as ‘kolbojnik’, meaning ‘leftovers’ in Hebrew. Tal R prefers the non-hierarchical style of exhibiting, often seeming like there’s a lack of linear narratives and collective meaning. The exhibition includes works of sculpture, furniture, paintings and works on paper. As well as works using fabric, wood and readymades, a selection of his sculptures explore the materiality and volatile process of ancient Japanese Raku ceramic firing.

Yinka Shonibare MBE: The William Morris Family Album
William Morris Gallery
Open until 7 June 2015
 
The internationally renown British-Nigerian artist, Yinka Shonibare is turning his attention to the William Morris family. In his characteristic textile-based fashion of looking at globalisation, trade, culture and identity, Shonibare has recreated a collection of photographs from the Morris album in his own style of cultural comparison, asking the viewer to contemplate on the notion of equality in Morris’ time and our own.
