‘Edmund de Waal: Psalm’ at Museo Ebraico and Ateneo Veneto, Venice

de Waal’s project connects human experience across many centuries, cultures and countries and, in its way, is as political as it is poetic.

Peter Doig at Secession, Vienna

Friday Dispatch – Anna Barriball: Fade at Frith Street Gallery, London

Installation, film and drawing are the core of Barriball’s practice. Her subject is the everyday, the little-noticed, the almost imperceptible.

Simon Ling at Towner Art Gallery, Eastbourne

While it might be tempting to understand Ling’s work within an English landscape tradition, his painting is as concerned with revealing the functioning of our ‘perceptual equipment’ as that of Bridget Riley.
