Matt Mullican: The Sequence of Things at Camden Arts Centre
 
I am not a fan of mega blockbuster art exhibitions, often I find them over-hyped and mentally exhausting. There are some smaller and out-of-the-centre art centres/galleries that I love visiting and Camden Arts Centre (in Hampstead) is one of them.
Recently, I went to [...]

I used to spend much my time hanging out at the ICA, yet since summer, I have been frequently visiting another new arts/cultural space, The Proud Archivist in Haggerston (an area where I was not familiar with before). I have never eaten in the restaurant downstairs [...]

Conceptual art exhibitions & performance in London

Ai Weiwei's 'Forever'
 
Last month, I visited Lisson Gallery to see the new exhibitions of two renowed contemporary conceptual artists, Ai Weiwei (until 19th July) and Richard Long (just ended).

Marina Abramovic Institute

Posted on August 18, 2013 by Toothpicker

Previously, I have written about performance artist, Marina Abramovic's documentary, "The Artist Is Present". Now the NY-based artist is pledging on Kickstarter for backers to contribute towards her latest, ambitious and ground-breaking project, Marina Abramovic Institute.
The buzz lately has been mostly about the fundraising video featuring Lady Gaga naked practicing the performance [...]

Dalston House by Leandro Erlich

Posted on July 14, 2013 by Toothpicker

I missed Barbican's Rain room installation earlier in the year because there were always long queues outside ( 12 hours was the record!) and I lack the patience for queuing... Luckily, the new outdoor installation supported by Barbican is most accessible, and it is perfect for this hot July!

The Bruce Lacey experience at Camden arts centre
 
I have heard of the eccentric British artist Bruce Lacey before, but I wasn't familiar with his work until his exhibition at the Camden Arts Centre ( one of my favourite galleries in London which is not actually in Camden) back in the summer.
The exhibition [...]
