Feeling overwhelmed by the number of art events happening all the time in London? See our recommendations on what to see this week.
ANDRZEJ WRÓBLEWSKI AT THE ZWIRNER GALLERY
The first ever solo presentation of Andrzej Wróblewski’s works in the UK opens this week. The exhibition will take place at the Zwirner Gallery (24 Grafton Street) in London. Open to the public 16 March – 14 April.
On view will be a group of key paintings and a wide-ranging selection of works on paper. Presented in collaboration with the Andrzej Wróblewski Foundation, this will be the must-see show.
Now considered a leading figure in postwar Polish art, Wróblewski’s short but prolific career encompassed painting, works on paper, and prints. Often drawing from Poland’s sociopolitical atmosphere in the wake of the Second World War, Wróblewski’s singular practice is characterised by a unique blend of figuration and abstraction.
‘HOME STRIKE’ AT L’ÉTRANGÈRE
Ranked №1 on Artnet and recommended by London Evening Standard, the exhibition ‘Home Strike’ opened on the International Women’s Day at l’étrangère.
Home Strike, guest curated by Alexandra Kokoli and Basia Sliwinska, brings together the work of four women artists — CANAN, Paula Chambers, Malgorzata Markiewicz, Su Richardson — in an exhibition exploring contemporary resistance to the persistent feminisation of domesticity and household maintenance. The exhibition interrogates those biopolitical and cultural norms that see women, and their bodies, systematically domesticated, exploited and imprisoned by ideologies founded on patriarchy.
