Channa Horwitz at Raven Row, London
For anyone who may have come across her work for the first time at the 2013 Venice Biennale, or last year at the Tinguely Museum in Basel as part of Haroon Mirza’s collaborative exhibition, this is at last an opportunity to grasp Horowitz’ project in greater depth.

Mark Wallinger, ID, at Hauser & Wirth, London
Wallinger’s genius is to take the seemingly banal and use it to jerk us out of the everyday towards a more acute understanding of where we stand, in the great scheme of things. That he does this with such humour and lightness of touch is what makes the work so enormously rewarding
Steven Claydon, The Gilded Bough, at Sadie Coles HQ, London

Claire Hooper, Clay as Bread and Dust as Wine, Hollybush Gardens, London
“This show is an example of what galleries do at their very best: offering the opportunity for an artist to experiment in a substantial way, to develop and grow their practice, to take risks. Which in this case, in my humble opinion, has paid off handsomely.”
