LAST CHANCE TO SEE!
Exhibitions in London about to close in the next couple of weeks,
catch them while you can:
Corin Sworn: Silent Sticks
at The Whitechapel Gallery closing Sunday 19th July
This brilliant large-scale installation entitled Silent Sticks (2015) was created by Corin Sworn as the culmination of her two years as the winner of the Max Mara Art Prize for Women 2013- 2015. The work, the result of the artist’s four month Italian residency which was part of the Max Mara Prize, comprises video, audio, objects, costumes and props inspired by the characters and themes from the traditional Italian Commedia dell’Arte theatre.
at Victoria & Albert Museum closing Sunday 19th July
The V&A belongs to all of us. But what does this really mean? What are the opportunities, obligations and limits to participation in this civic institution? In this free exhibition, the V&A has been reconceived as a space for prototyping public life; thinking about how design defines civic identity, technology, security, citizenship, democracy, the public realm and urban experience. There are specially commissioned installations and displays across the Museum from the likes of James Bridle, Natalie Jeremijenko and Jorge Otero-Pailos.
Cornelia Parker: Magna Carta (An Embroidery)
at The British Library closing Friday 24th July
Fabricated by many hands, from prisoners and lawyers to artists and barons, Magna Carta (An Embroidery) replicates in stitch the entire Wikipedia article on the Great Charter as it appeared on the document’s 799th anniversary in 2014.
