If the last few years have taught us anything, it’s that nothing beats an in-person art encounter. And whittling down your London art exhibitions to-see list is rarely easy, even in the quieter months on the art calendar. But we’ve saved you the trouble with an ongoing guide to the art must-sees, in London and around the UK.
Wolfgang Laib: ‘City of Silence’
Until 3 October
Wolfgang Laib is known for his work in natural materials like pollen, wool, milk and wood, producing pieces inspired by Taoist philosophy and modern sculptors to connect past and present, with perishability as a central theme. In ‘City of Silence’, his beeswax motifs from Mesopotamian pyramids and Christian shrines are paired with brass boats and works on paper to create an impactful city of burial towers.
