Leonor Antunes the frisson of the togetherness at Whitechapel Gallery until 9 April 2018

Straight lines and flat planes morph into looping and twisting volumes and sculptural reliefs in the new commission by Leonor Antunes (b. 1972, Portugal). Weavings, geometric patterns, artisanal techniques and utilitarian designs are sources of inspiration.

Taking its title from British architect Alison Smithson’s description of how young people bring together elements of style to define their identity and social allegiances, Antunes gathers references to overlooked figures in the history of 20th-century architecture, art and design, particularly women. Her commission has been informed by two artists who lived in London — Mary Martin (1907–69, UK) and Lucia Nogueira (1950–98, Brazil). While bothwere known for their sculpture, Martin also created works on paper and weavings and Nogueira made jewellery.

Antunes’s commission features hanging and floor-based sculptures made from materials including metal, leather and rope, illuminated by lights designed by the artist. The sculptures serve as screens or dividers, creating layers and shaping the viewer’s journey through the space. The gallery floor is covered in a geometric pattern, based on a drawing by Martin and made of cork and linoleum. Antunes has also selected examples of jewellery by Brazilian artist Nogueira, which are displayed in sculptural glass displaycases by Danish designer Nanna Ditzel (1923–2005).

The exhibition is a new work comprising five connected yet distinct spaces which draw on wide-ranging references, from Hollywood director Busby Berkley’s 1930s stage-sets to the Surrealist landscapes of Max Ernst, continuing the artist’s exploration into materiality, where the physical and digital meet.

Benedict Drew (b.1977) works across video, sculpture and music, creating large-scale multimedia installations which comment on the effects of socio-political and environmental issues. The artist’s most ambitious public presentation in the UK is on show at the Whitechapel Gallery this summer.

Our favourite Brick Lane drinks and games venue is the gift that keeps giving. They recently upgraded three of their crazy golf courses (nine hole) and now have upgraded bars!

Encounter fighting bear cages, scrapyard slides, creepy clowns, treehouse bars, UV garage section and loads more in the unique space.

Choose to play one of the courses PABLO (Polluted Paradise), BOZO (Circus Freaks), GARY (Scrapyard Challenge) or BRUCE (Old School Movie Mash-Up).

There are four bars, serving banging cocktails, like the Golf Lundgren or Who’s Your Caddy and tasty snacks including hot dogs, nachos and popcorn.

Junkyard Golf Club London may have landed a little less than a year ago but its impact on the city has been huge. The party person’s must-do has welcomed over 200,000 players through the doors, clocking up nearly 250,000 games of twisted, pun-packed crazy golf between them. Celebrity spots at the venue have included Jonathan Ross, Tom Hardy, members of Little Mix and Bastille, Jack Garratt, Gossip Girl’s Ed Westwick and more – further evidence that this is the place to be. Not to mention the many many party cocktails coiffed and hotdogs consumed at Junkyard’s home of The Old Truman Brewery, Brick Lane.

New courses:

  • Pablo transports players from a treehouse, past a deep-cave-bear-wrestling-cage via a Rihanna themed forest, obviously. Not to mention a stopover at Rio-On-Sea.
  • Bozo is not for the fainthearted given its circus freak inhabitants. Winner takes all in Junkyard’s dark homage to all things carnival. A Ferris wheel, hall of mirrors and some damn scary clowns – time to run away from the circus.
  • Gary is firmly implanted in Junkyard’s roots, a good old-fashioned scrapyard challenge. Tyre loop-the loops, a salvaged slide, Gary’s UV garage rave and more.

These new kids on the block join the previously installed Blockbuster-themed forth course, Bruce. Nine holes of Oscar-winning proportions skew the plots of legendary movies, move through prison cells, crocodile infested territories and Mount Mordor on a quest for glory.

Six upgraded bar areas. Two ‘bunker’ bars, plus four perfectly placed course-side for mid-game refueling, offer up a full selection of drinks, slushies and party cocktails served in big red house-party style cups. The food offering has been given a fairground spin with salted caramel popcorn and pick n’ mix now available alongside hotdogs and nachos.

Mary Heilmann: Looking at Pictures @ Whitechapel Gallery / 21st August 2016

TIME AND PLACE:

Doors: Tue-Sun 11am-6pm

@ Whitechapel Gallery, Galleries 1, 8 & 9, 77-82 Whitechapel High Street, London E1 7QX

Free entry

www.whitechapelgallery.org/exhibitions/mary-heilmann-looking-at-pictures

The surreal beach life of Los Angeles, 1960s counter culture, pop songs and friendships with New York artists, poets and musicians are the well springs of Mary Heilmann’s dazzling abstractions.

Heilmann (b. 1940) takes colour, line and shape on unexpected journeys. Polka dots waft across eye-popping hues corralled within irregular rectangles. The poetry of her works lies in the tension between the rigours of geometry and the contingencies of the human and the organic.

The exhibition begins with paintings based on the square, the grid and architectural details, such as The First Vent (1972). They are juxtaposed with glazed ceramics, hovering between painting and sculpture. A slide show, Her Life (2006), features Heilmann’s paintings and personal photographs set to an eclectic mix of music.

Choreographed across Gallery 8, dynamic canvases represent ‘autobiographical markers’ – painterly haikus of the artist’s life. Their vibrancy is matched by their titles – Bush of Ghosts (1980) or Good Vibrations Diptych, Remembering David (2012). Heilmann invites the viewer to become immersed in her synaesthetic stories while sitting in her colourful chairs.
