Twenty years of Aspex Gallery continues with an exhibition celebrating over 1000 artists contributions, until 25 August. The gallery was set up in 1981 to show the work of new and emerging artists often at a crucial stage of their careers, which remains its policy today. A souvenir publication is available. Also on show, A Matter Of, explores the relationship of the visual artist to text.
Venue: Aspex Gallery, 27 Brougham Road, Southsea, Portsmouth, Hampshire P05 4PA.
Ceramicist Phil Eglin shows his latest work, drawn from northern medieval wood carvings, from 10 August until 2 December. Drawings from the Victoria & Albert Museum’s catalogue of Northern Gothic Sculpture were used as a source for the figurative pieces, seen directly alongside the carvings that inspired them.
Venue: Design Now: 20th Century Gallery, V&A, Cromwell Road, London SW7.
An exhibition of recent, new and site specific work by artist Antoni Malinowski runs until 16 September. Malinowski’s work explores the relationship between interior and exterior spaces through the interaction with the immediate architectural environments. In his paintings, delicate and precise brushmarks undulate with waves of intense colour, creating shifts in pictorial and physical space effecting the ebb and flow, energy and emptiness in the work.
Venue: De La Warr Pavilion, Marian, Bexhill on Sea, East Sussex, TN40 1DP.
Touring London, which went live in July, is a Web-based visual arts project that focuses on the experience of London and the act of exploring a global city. The Institute of International Visual Arts has commissioned eight artists to create on-line artworks.
