Just a quick post to encourage you all to pop down to Zabludowicz’s latest show. Everytime we visit this gallery we can’t believe how lucky we are to have it on our doorstep.
Till Dec 11 is the first solo show from Laurel Nakadate, an American artist who works with film, photography and performance. Nakadate puts herself (indeed, often her actual body) at the centre of what she does – with funny, touching and sometimes shocking results.
She often seeks out strangers or random people to work with – our favourite was “Oops!(2000), a three-channel installation in which she was invited into the homes of men she met through chance encounters, asking them to dance with her to Britney Spears’ iconic song. Really.
And it’s worth heading to the gallery this week (11-16 October) as late-opening hours apply: Tuesday – Saturday, 11am-8pm and Sunday 12-6pm.
In fact, whilst we’re raving about the place, we’re also pretty excited by the new season of free movies about to start. Sunday Nov 6 sees the return of the gallery’s pop-up cinema, showcasing weekly American films for FREE at the lovely time of 4pm, starting with Lolita. Amaze.
And even if art or the movies ain’t your thing (maybe you’re dead?) they’ve spruced up the cafe too – so don’t miss some of the best coffee and cakes in NW5.
