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: Jeppe Hein: All We Need Is Inside 303 Gallery Opening 16 April – 30 May 2015 This is the third exhibition containing new work from Danish artist Jappe Hein. This show attempts to emerge an awareness of one’s own body and mind through a series of experiential installations and sculptures. His notable use of mirrors, colour and 3-dimensional forms turn your attention to spaces, sometimes with a disorientating effect. http://www.303gallery.com/index.php?exhid=276 303 Gallery 507 W 24th Street New York, NY 10011 U.S. —————————————————— Christopher Williams: The Production Line of Happiness Whitechapel Gallery Opening 29 April – 21 June 2015 This is an exhibition of photographs about photography. American artist Christopher Williams investigates the medium of photography as the epitome of modernism. His prints expose surprising beauty within commercial, industrial and instructional photography. Williams often works with set designers, models and technicians to produce technically accurate images that evoke Cold War era pictures, 1960’s advertising and wider histories of art, photography and cinema. http://www.whitechapelgallery.org/exhibitions/christopher-williams/ Whitechapel Gallery 77-82 Whitechapel High St London E1 7QX U.K —————————————————— Zabludowicz Collection: 20 Years Zabludowicz Collection Opening 30 April – 16 August 2015 This landmark exhibition celebrates 20 years of the Zabludowicz Collection.

The Islamic Revolution in 1979 marked the beginning of the artist’s exile in New York where she focused on drawing, collage and textile design. http://www.guggenheim.org/new-york/exhibitions/on-view/monir-shahroudy-farmanfarmaian-infinite-possibility-mirror-works-and-drawings-1974-2014 Solomon R.
