Visual art London

Posted on October 29, 2013

It is not easy to squeeze in the visual art visits when working in London, but I was lucky enough to have two successive meetings cancel on me at the last minute one morning, so I got up early and raced across town to fit in some of my favourite galleries. At Whitechapel, Sarah Lucas was featured in a large retrospective of really witty, grotty, moving work. At ICA, I needed only a few minutes to see both Lutz Bacher and Zhang Enli  (still so off your game, ICA…nostalgia) and at The Victoria and Albert I trotted around the insane, impressive installation, tomorrow, by Scandinavian artists Elmgreen and Dragset. En route to another meeting I managed to hop into the Serpentine gallery, featuring the arte povera of Marisa Merz (meh), glimpsed the pavillion by Sou Fujimoto and was thrilled to encounter the new Sackler wing with the very solid and imposing work of Adrian Vilar Rojos and the elegant, swooping architecture of Zaha Hadid. Treats.
