Céline Condorelli at Chisenhale Gallery, London

To the Chisenhale Gallery this week, the redoubtable incubator and R&D division for contemporary art that has been powering away in the East End for so many years, and is currently thriving under the directorship of Polly Staple.

Haris Epaminonda & part wild horses mane on both sides, Part I / Part II at Rowing, London

This week I want to send you to the diminutive Rowing gallery in Kentish Town. Tucked away up a slightly shabby side street, and inhabiting a former piano factory, this outfit has been running since summer 2012 and works with an ultra-cool list of young artists that includes Andy Holden, Samara Scott and Rachel McLean.

Laurence Kavanagh, ‘May’, at Marlborough Contemporary, London

Laurence Kavanagh‘s first exhibition at Marlborough Contemporary employs a determinedly lo-fi, hand-made aesthetic. Old fashioned collage is central here – conjure the sound of razor-sharp blades slicing through paper –…

Saskia Olde Wolbers, Yes, these Eyes are the Windows, an Artangel commission

Spring is here and with it the latest episode in the uxorious love-affair between Artangel and the grande dame that is the city of London. Previous episodes of note have…

Eva Rothschild at Modern Art and Jessie Flood-Paddock at Carl Freedman Gallery, London

I have two unmissable shows for you this week. The Spring break means there is a traffic jam of exhibitions all opening together right now but I suggest that first of all you get along to see Eva Rothschild’s latest body of work, inaugurating Stuart Shave’s much anticipated new gallery just to the side of St Luke’s church on Old Street.

David Murphy, Certain Impacts, at PEER

This week I am sending you to Hoxton Street, and to the redoubtable PEER, an institution which has been an important, critically independent voice on the London scene since 1997. …

Richard Mosse, The Enclave, at The Vinyl Factory Space, London

Unless you have a particular interest in sub-Saharan Africa, it would be quite easy to be blithely unaware of the horrors playing out in the Democratic Republic of Congo. Such…

Benedict Drew at Matt’s Gallery, London

Walking into the first room of Benedict Drew’s new installation at Matt’s Gallery the flat screen monitor that confronts you somehow seems to sense your presence and, showing an image…

Francis Upritchard at Kate MacGarry, London

Kate MacGarry loves a bit of an art/craft crossover: a number of her artists use ceramics and textiles as part of their vocabulary (witness the tapestries of Goshka Macuga, Renee So’s wonderful knitted works and Tiago Carneiro Da Cunha’s ceramics), and Francis Upritchard’s latest show reinforces the profile of one of London’s most distinctive and best loved contemporary galleries.
