Julian Stair, Quotidian, at Corvi Mora, London
I should declare my hand from the outset here: I have, until very recently, been a life-long craft-denier. I am in a process of rehabilitation, and must thank a number of patient individuals, who know who they are, for gently easing me out of this state of profound ignorance. I am therefore probably the least qualified person imaginable to address the most recent exhibition of work by the very distinguished ceramicist, and academic, Julian Stair. But I will plough on, with all the zeal of a recent convert.

Tamara Henderson, Charmer Scripture, and Banu Cennetoglu, Gentle Madness, at Rodeo, London
Charing Cross Road. 123 Charing Cross Road, to be precise. It’s an address that evokes a romantic, bookish notion of London. It’s also the London of theatreland, of international students with matching rucksacks and of ‘arty’ bookshops with pulsing neon signs and pulsating basements.

Last chance to see – Dorothea Tanning, Web of Dreams, at Alison Jacques Gallery, London
But afterwards I wandered up to Alison Jacques Gallery, and the show of predominantly late paintings by Dorothea Tanning, who died in 2012 aged 101. Tanning’s surrealising paintings of female figures in interiors, distorted bodies and tangled limbs seemed like a continuation of the lunchtime conversation.
