British graphic artist Patrick Thomas. Silkscreened bold heart ideograms combined with found imagery and collage will be a recurring motif throughout the exhibition, which is timed to coincide with the Feast of Saint Valentine.

100 BPM will be the artist’s first solo exhibition in London since 2008 and first time that this collection will be shown publicly.

The majority of works on show will be limited editions and unique pieces created using free-form screen printing and collage, a technique which the artist has been investigating over the past 18 months in Berlin and Barcelona. This work explores the area between the unique artwork and the edition. A selection of prints will be perforated with a laser cutter to simulate arrow shots. Several will have real arrows embedded into the gallery walls.

Only in England: Photographs by Tony Ray-Jones and Martin Parr @ Science Museum / until 16th March 2014

Only in England - Photographs by Tony Ray-Jones and Martin Parr at Science MuseumTIME AND PLACE:

Doors: 10:00-18:00

Tickets: £8 book online

Fascinated by the eccentricities of English social customs, Tony Ray-Jones spent the latter half of the 1960s travelling across England, photographing what he saw as a disappearing way of life. Humorous yet melancholy, these works had a profound influence on photographer Martin Parr, who has now made a new selection including over 50 previously unseen works from the National Media Museum’s Ray-Jones archive. Shown alongside The Non-Conformists, Parr’s rarely seen work from the 1970s, this selection forms a major new exhibition which demonstrates the close relationships between the work of these two important photographers.

In the Making at Design MuseumTIME AND PLACE:

Doors: 10:00-17:45

@ Design Museum, Shad Thames, London SE1 2YD

Tickets: £13 book online

The secret life of cricket bats, felt hats, shoes, boots, marbles, light bulbs, whistles, pencils, coins, horns, lenses and Olympic torches.

In The Making, curated for the Design Museum by Edward Barber and Jay Osgerby, captures twenty four objects mid-manufacture, putting the aesthetic of the unfinished centre stage. Varying from the £2 coin to a cricket bat, a surprising range of objects have been chosen by founders of design studio Barber & Osgerby, to be exhibited in an incomplete state, celebrating the intriguing beauty of the production process.

The show gives a glimpse of the designers’ ongoing dialogue with the manufacturing process. This perspective is distinctive to their practice: throughout their careers, Edward and Jay have had a curiosity about the way things are made.

Hannah Höch was an artistic and cultural pioneer. A member of Berlin’s Dada movement in the 1920s, she was a driving force in the development of 20th century collage.

Splicing together images taken from fashion magazines and illustrated journals, she created a humorous and moving commentary on society during a time of tremendous social change.

Höch was admired by contemporaries such as George Grosz, Theo van Doesburg and Kurt Schwitters, yet was often overlooked by traditional art history.

As the first major exhibition of her work in Britain, the show puts this inspiring figure in the spotlight.
