10 Exhibitions We’re Excited to See This Week
10 March - 2 April, 2022
Opening: Wednesday, 9 March: 6-8PM
76 Brewer St • Floor 3 • W1F 9TX
The Artist Room is pleased to present Inside Out, a group exhibition including works by Sophie Mei Birkin, Max Boyla, Sonya Derviz, Antoine Leisure, Kin-Ting Li, Ding Shilun and Scott Young.
This exhibition explores how a dystopian consciousness permeates the work of a new generation of contemporary artists. From subverting the so-called ‘natural’ to envisioning surreal cosmologies and carnal futures, this exhibition brings together a group of emerging artists that imagine life turned inside out. By rendering visible the imagined, unseen and yet felt, a new generation of artists are responding to our hyper-transient and image-centric age by building new visual languages to form alternative paths to perception.
Karolina Albricht: 16 Branches High
10 March - 9 April, 2022
Opening Drinks 11th March 6:30-8:30pm
STUDIO WEST is proud to present 16 Branches High, a solo show by London-based Polish painter and sculptor Karolina Albricht. The exhibition presents abstracted painted works of differing scale, juxtaposed to an exploratory body of sculpture. Thematically the pieces on show are a continuation of Albricht’s investigation of both formal and metaphysical concerns including colour, space, the body, movement, and gesture.
Lawrence Calver: Under the Sun
10 March - 9 April, 2022
Cob Gallery is proud to present ‘Under the Sun’, a new solo exhibition of large-scale textile works by Lawrence Calver.
Calver’s practice is built around sourcing and repurposing textiles into arresting abstract compositions. Working mostly within restricted colour palettes, he has developed a language that is as haptic as it is visual. Using processes including embroidery, stitching and sewing, as well as bleaching, dying and staining, he draws out striking, sensitive conjunctions of texture and tactility.
A.R. Penck: Paintings 1974–1990
9 March - 14 April, 2022
White Cube Mason’s Yard is pleased to present an exhibition of paintings by A.R. Penck (1939–2017), a visionary polymath whose approach to European painting was both radical and singular. Often associated with the leading German artists of his time, including Georg Baselitz and Anselm Kiefer, Penck’s work was equally distinctive and innovative. Featuring works from the mid-1970s up to 1990, the exhibition focuses on a particularly fertile and significant decade and a half in the artist’s 50-year career.
Paulo Nimer Pjota
11 March - 24 April, 2022
Preview Day: Friday 11 March, 11 am – 7 pm
Maureen Paley is pleased to announce our third exhibition by Paulo Nimer Pjota. This exhibition will be presented across the gallery’s two London spaces at 60 Three Colts Lane and Studio M and will coincide with his solo exhibition Every Empire Breaks Like a Vase, which is currently on view until 18 March 2022 at The Power Station, Dallas, Texas.
‘Paulo Nimer Pjota’s compositions are uncanny reflections of the free associations that accrue at the liminal edges of our collective stream of consciousness… (His) intermingling of things extracted from high and low culture, and from periods across history, exposed the mechanisms that determine our beliefs and behaviour. The contingency of being was teased out by these unlikely contiguities, revealing reality as a state in constant flux, transfigured with each successive encounter, and the present as a place where all of time collides.’

Katinka Lampe: Anima Mundi
10 March - 29 April, 2022
Opening Reception: Thursday 10 March, 6 – 8pm
Workplace is delighted to present its first solo exhibition of Dutch painter Katinka Lampe, opening at the gallery’s central London location with a private view on Thursday 10th of March, from 6-8pm.
For Anima Mundi, Lampe presents a new series of paintings in which her subjects are tightly cropped or placed in arresting poses, often revealing just a detailed part of their body. This unorthodox perspective and framing acts as a device that shifts our focus away from the identity of the subject towards formal aspects of painting. By inviting the viewer to see beyond what is represented, Lampe’s uncanny depictions of people become vehicles to explore the masks we wear to fit in, and the challenges of looking past the surface both in paintings and in human relationships. Anima Mundi, as the title suggests, is Lampe’s attempt to represent what transcends physical appearances.
9. Chisenhale Gallery
Rachel Jones: say cheeeeese
12 March - 12 June, 2022
Chisenhale Gallery is pleased to present say cheeeeese, a new commission by artist Rachel Jones and her first solo exhibition in an institution. Working with painting, installation and performance, Jones’ work examines ways of expressing that which can be seen and sensed rather than uttered. Jones’ oil pastel on canvas and paper works often repeat symbols, colours and textures, creating associative, even familial relationships between works varying in scale from the monumental to the hand-held and jewel-like.
For her Chisenhale Gallery commission, Jones develops her chosen materials of oil pastels and oil sticks to produce a new body of paintings on canvas and paper. Making architectural adaptations to the gallery, Jones’ exhibition creates new sightlines by the use of freestanding walls and by revealing all six of Chisenhale Gallery’s windows to allow daylight in, exposed in full for the first time since the 1980s. Additionally, Jones has produced a series of stickers for the inner gallery walls and exterior doors.
Three’s A Crowd
10 March - 26 March, 2022
Soho Revue is excited to present, ‘Three’s A Crowd,’ bringing together the works by three London based painters: Joe Bloom, Anne Carney Raines, and Oliver Pearce.
All three painters are united by their capacity to build new and exciting worlds and exhibited works which stimulate the furthest corners of the imagination. Each with their own distinctive styles, Bloom, Raines, and Pearce play with the artifice of painting, constantly seeking to push the limitations of the medium.
