  • As we all have access to a great number of free and paid for galleries, all over the country/ world, I thought it would be nice to have a central place to suggest, discuss or critique them.

    I am hoping to go to the Basquiat display at Barbican on Friday, anyone been?

  • I haven't been to the Barbican show, but did see his retrospective in Paris in 2010, which was amazing.

  • Great idea for a thread, I'm forever finding out about little exhibitions here and there once its too late.

  • off the top of my head:

    john akomfrah at barbican curve is excellent (free)
    dali/duchamp at royal academy is excellent (paid)
    tate tanks video installations at the moment are excellent (free)
    thomas ruff at whitechapel gallery should be excellent (paid)

  • The Basquiat show is good. It’s nowhere near as comprehensive as the retrospective in Paris but well worth a visit.

    I haven't been yet but the Thomas Ruff exhibition at the Whitechapel Gallery looks good

  • The exhibitions at 180 the strand are great as usual, the ryoji ikeda installation is one of my favourite things I've seen all year.

  • Has anyone been to the Manga exhibition at the British Museum?
    Was considering it, but £20 for something I only have a passing interest in (and another £20 for ladywife who has less interest) seems an expensive afternoon.

  • Kaws has an exhibition opening in October for a very short period.

  • I’m not familiar with Kaws, is the exhibition worth a visit?

  • I'm showing and selling mine and my partner's creations this weekend as part of the Peckham Festival.

  • I went to the Kaws exhibition, it's tiny.
    2 sculptures and maybe 10 paintings (that were all very similar)
    I liked it, and would love to see a bigger, full show.

    If your over Piccadilly I'd say check it out (Skartstedt gallery)
    Tickets are free, I had them, turned up, security asked if I had tickets, but didn't check them, so you could probably chance it. They just don't like too many people in the relatively small space.
