Pick of the week 03.04.2009

Time to say good bye! Today is my last day here and this is my last pick for you. Enjoy it!

Exhibition - Chosen by Joanne
Anish Kapoor - Blood Rleations
10th April - 24th May
One of Anish Kapoor events/exhibitons, as part of the Brighton Festival 2009 curated by the artist. This is an early event in the festival, with more to come in May.

Collaboration - Chosen by Alison
The Collection - a collaboration between the Victoria Miro Gallery and The Sioban Davies Dance Studio. The Collection is a series of ambitious collaborations that look at the interfaces of contemporary art and dance, where these worlds intersect and how they might inform one another. At the heart of The Collection is a mutual curiosity for potential exchanges across both art forms, and an exploration of the connections and disconnections within them.

Exhibition - Chosen by Lisa
Wait! By Lindsey Copeland
A visual investigation into the importance of the word "Wait" and the value of patience.
Dreamspace Gallery, 6th April-10th April - FREE

Art Fair - Chosen by Oyinda
Johannesburg Art Fair
2nd - 5th April 2009
Sandton Convention Centre, Johannesburg
Following the remarkable success of last year's event, the next Johannesburg Art Fair
will take place in April 3-5, with more exciting programming and hopefully more gallery participation. Presently the event will feature 25 galleries, 8 special projects and 33 artist-talks. Among the 8 projects, I am particularly curious, that is to say highly enthusiastic, about the "Featured Artist" project for which Jane Alexander--to my mind one of the most powerful figurative sculptors working today--will present her installation piece, Security; of equal interest should be the show of film works by artists from the "Global South," organized by my friend Tumelo Mosaka of the Brooklyn Museum.

When: Sat 4 Apr - Fri 22 May 2009

Opening - The Whitechapel Gallery
After 2 years wait the Whitechapel reopens on Sunday 5th April. With Isa Genzkin, Ursula Mayer's and many other hot picks on show we are happy to see the doors open again.
But don't forget to also head to the Shop on Toynbee Street (the Whitechapels off site space) to see Minerva Cuevas' S.COOP project more info here.

Dance (well kinda) - New Art Club
The Place
The Visible People
4th and 5th of April
£5 - £15

New Art Club is Tom Roden and Pete Shenton, they have been working with a group of "non professional dancers" to create The Visable People, a take on their hugely successful show the Visable Men.
The show aims to create a world where the familiar laws of physics are unreliable, where things and people appear, disappear and re-appear somewhere else. With some dancing, some talking, some simple gags and some subtle surprises, New Art Club and gang explode the myths hidden behind the theatrical curtain.
I'm in!
