11 Best of START Art Fair - Saatchi Gallery

Saatchi gallery scores again with last week’s START Art Fair. For me, Pangaea was interesting but Start Art Fair was exciting, especially as its a product of the highly successful Global EYE Programme which produced Korean Eye and the Indonesian Art Fair – both of which exhibited at Saatchi. Since…

Phyllida Barlow - Tate Britain Commission 2014

Phyllida Barlow’s new commission at the Duveen galleries at Tate Britain *is large, messy, unstable and chaotic.* But despite the disarray and all the cardboard, timber and rope hanging about on top of me, it gives a sense that it’s all contained chaos. The premise of it all…

16 of the Best artworks from Art14 London

I was very excited to see Art 14 and had great expectations that this one will top last year’s fair. I enjoyed last year’s exhibition and with the number of international galleries exhibiting, it  helped piqued my interest again in Asian art which I didn’t have a…

Come and See: Jake and Dinos Chapman at the Serpentine Sackler Gallery

I’ve been told many times by friends that the Chapman brothers are overrated. Whatever. I know for a fact that I am always entertained, provoked, perplexed every time I see an exhibition from this duo – with all the flurry of emotions when I see great art. Even in the…

Blogger's Event on Castiliogne: the Lost Genius - Queen's Gallery, Royal Collection

Castiliogne? Does the name ring a bell? For the Blogger’s Event held at the Queen’s gallery, Buckingham Palace, Senior curator of Prints and Drawings Martin Clayton sat down and asked me whether I knew Castiliogne. I was in fact invited to this event, the first of its kind…

Li Songsong: We Have Betrayed the Revolution, Pace Gallery (until Nov 9)

Li Songsong’s exhibition at thePace Gallery is just simply superb. I am actually campaigning to have this exhibition extended because it’s that good. Even Ai Weiwei himself has given his stamp of approval by writing two essays about this artist in the show catalogue. For this show, Li…

Sarah Morris: Bye Bye Brazil and Marcius Galan: Geometric Progression - White Cube Bermondsey

Hello, I’m back from a five month blogging hiatus. I’ve seen a lot of exhibits these past few months but never had a chance to write about them – like Anthony Caro’s Park Avenue series at the Gagosian gallery and the amazing Souzou: Outside Art from Japan at…

Pedro Reyes - Disarm: Make Music, Not War

If John Lennon’s song Imagine can be transformed into a visual language, it would be something like this Disarm exhibition at the Lisson gallery. I think Pedro Reyes’ weapons-cum-musical instruments really tune into what is probably the closest thing I’ve ever seen visual arts do to call for…

Spinning Yarn: Pae White: Too Much Night, Again at the South London Gallery

Whether it be smoke image tapestry or works that defy the lines between applied and fine art  multi-media artist Pae White never fails to craft temporal artworks into monumental pieces. In her new exhibition ‘Too Much Night, Again’ at the South London Gallery, the American artist has transformed the main…

27 of my Favourite Artworks from the @Art13 London Fair

Art 13 – the new contemporary art fair that graced London this week was a success: Artinfo reports the positive sales incurred during the show and it signals a bright future for this art newcomer. For me, despite not seeing the presence of major London galleries here, what I really enjoyed…
