Everything At Once at 180 The Strand until 10 December 2017

Store Studios is hosting an extensive off-site exhibition featuring 24 artists currently shown at Lisson Gallery in celebration of its 50th anniversary.

The stellar line-up presents work by a range of international artists like Ai Weiwei, Anish Kapoor, Marina Abramović, Cory Arcangel, Julian Opie, Richard Long, Lawrence Weiner and more, as well as featuring previous VF collaborators Haroon Mirza, Rodney Graham, Nathalie Djurberg and Hans Berg.

Housed in the striking brutalist environment at Store Studios – home to last year’s show-stopping music and film exhibition The Infinite Mix – Everything At Once probes the multi-sensory simultaneity of contemporary life, first articulated by John Cage in 1966, a year before Lisson Gallery opened its doors.

Neither chronological nor encyclopedic, the show will instead feature 45 interconnected works that exploit the full potential of the space, whether through installation, painting, sculpture, performance or sound.

Doors:
Sunday to Thursday 10.00–18.00

www.tate.org.uk/whats-on/tate-modern/exhibition/fahrelnissa-zeid

Trained in both Paris and Istanbul, Fahrelnissa Zeid was an important figure in the Turkish avant-garde d Group in the early 1940s and the École de Paris (School of Paris) in the 1950s. Her vibrant abstract paintings are a synthesis of Islamic, Byzantine, Arab and Persian influences fused with European approaches to abstraction. Many of her abstract works are monumental and demand attention.

Zeid’s reputation as an artist was cemented in the 1950s when she was living between London and Paris and exhibiting extensively internationally. The artist also began experimenting with painting on turkey and chicken bones, which she later cast in polyester resin panels evocative of stained-glass windows. In the later years of her life she unexpectedly returned to figurative painting, creating stylised portraits of her friends and family.

Indulge in Zeid’s obsession with line and dazzling colour in this exhibition. Rediscover one of the greatest female artists of the 20th century in this first major retrospective.​

Food for Being Looked At @ The Photographers Gallery / until 8th October 2017

Doors:
Monday–Saturday: 10.00–18:00

Luscious, playful, fetishised: Food for being looked at considers the history of food through its image culture. Images of food, from preparation to the final dish, are shared and ‘consumed’ widely across print and digital media. They are used to reinforce a diversity of lifestyles, an aesthetic understanding, or a moral pledge through their voyeuristic composition and distribution. This project selects several culinary themes and traces their elevation into symbols of consumer identities through cookbooks, magazines, blogs on foodporn or cookery videos showing how to prepare mouthwatering feasts.
