In Bristol, Spike Island is presenting Sriwhana Spong’s largest exhibition to date outside of her native New Zealand. The exhibition includes a series of sculptures based on the traditional Balinese gamelan and a new film, shot in and around the artist’s ancestral home in Bali, Indonesia.
In London, Hito Steyerl considers power and inequality in society at the Serpentine, mapping unequal wealth distribution in the communities surrounding the gallery which has been recorded as one of the most socially uneven areas in Europe. On the other side of the city, artists including Prem Sahib chart London’s rapidly changing landscape on its queer scene in a small exhibition at the Whitechapel Gallery.
