The inaugural Hepworth Prize for Sculpture at The Hepworth Wakefield has a highly impressive shortlist (Phyllida Barlow, Steven Claydon, Helen Marten and David Medalla) that makes this exhibition a must-see. In London this year’s Bloomberg New Contemporaries arrives at the ICA having exhibited in Liverpool, giving a good snapshot of emerging trends in art.

Severija Inčirauskaitė-Kriaunevičienė’s stitched metal craft piece acquired for New Walk Museum and Art Gallery, Leicester

The artist embraces the mundane symbols of Lithuanian life – the metal bucket, the radiator, the car – and turns them into objects of beauty, rather than shunning them and the industrial processes they represent.

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

The National or the Skip

A show in a derelict hotel, the title is inspired by something Francis Bacon once said: “if my paintings didn’t belong in the National Gallery, they were destined for the skip.”

The Colony by Dinh Q. Lê, an Artangel Commission
