A delicately poised yet probing exhibition featuring the work of Céline Condorelli, Laura Gannon, Donna Huddleston, Goshka Macuga, Corin Sworn, Patricia Treib
Eva Rothschild’s powerful new show in a museum threatened with closure
All the work in this exhibition, with the exception of one piece, has been made this year, and so it has inevitably been made against the background of the political upheavals in the UK over the summer
Sara Barker at Ikon, Birmingham
There is a lyricism to the work, in tandem with a concern with abstract form that is very Glasgow
A Postcard from the North West
Visits to Tullie House, Grundy Art Gallery, Bury Art Museum & Sculpture Centre and Touchstones Rochdale
Cornelia Parker Curates ‘Found’ at the Foundling Museum

Brian Griffiths, Bill & Vilma, Vilma Gold

Alison Wilding: Arena Redux, Art House Foundation
After sixteen years packed away in wooden crates, this radiantly wonderful sculpture is for a short time on view to the public again.

There is a thriving art scene in Antwerp, with a slew of commercial galleries supporting it in addition to the public spaces.
Double Take: Drawing and Photography, Drawing Room and The Photographers’ Gallery
