LA LISTA DE EVENTOS EN LONDRES SE ACTUALIZA A DIARIO – última actualización (15/06/13 - 7h)

- Inspirational Objects: Nature as Designer - We live in a world created by nature but designed by man. Everyday we interact with hundreds of objects, the majority of which we take for granted. Some are inventive and ingenious, some are full of poetry and memories and some seem indispensable but can ultimately be destructive. Curator Alison Milner and photographer Steve Speller encourage you to look a little differently at these everyday objects. Until 16 June. www.pumphousegallery.org.uk

- Claire Aho - Studio Works - Aho’s relationship to the studio space is taken as the starting point for this exhibition, and is used as a prism through which to understand the relationship with her subjects, and – in particular – her dialogue with form, colour and pattern. Evidence of the mechanics of the image making process, such as colour charts, studio lights and backdrops are often included within the frame of the exhibited images. The exhibition will also include a display of original materials where the images have been cropped and combined with graphics for magazine covers, advertising and packaging. The photographs, spanning her career from 1950 to 1970, illustrate Aho’s trademark vibrancy and humour, through formally inventive compositions and scenarios constantly reimagined. Until 21 June. www.photonet.org.uk

- Sheila Hicks - The artist describes her work as 'unbiased weaves', a phrase which not only reflects her fascination for language and poetry but her interest in classifications. Crucial components of Hicks's language include colour with embedded texture, and structure that employs unexpected materials such as recycled and reappointed objects from hospitals, rubber bands and porcupine quills. She fuses ancient textile traditions with the Bauhaus principles of colour, form and scale. Hicks also holds the firm belief that material be allowed to express its inherent nature. She avoids armatures, preferring to stack and twist her chosen materials: bound ropes, twisted skeins, steel wrapped bundles, intertwined lines of silk and cascading linen. Hicks's 'Minimes', a series of small, complex wall-based works, reflect her memories and observations of places and moments lived; whereas the large-scale monumental sculptures tackle complex architectural contexts often tumbling from ceilings or consuming the spaces in which they inhabit. Until 29 June. www.alisonjacquesgallery.com

Recommended- Souzou: Outsider Art from Japan - The 46 artists represented in the show are residents and day attendees at social welfare institutions across Japan. The wonderfully diverse collection comprises ceramics, textiles, paintings, sculpture and drawings. 'Souzou' has no direct translation in English but a dual meaning in Japanese: written one way, it means creation, and in another it means imagination. Both meanings allude to a force by which new ideas are born and take shape in the world. Eschewing a purely biographical approach, the show will be object-led, with a startling array of works offering singular and affecting explorations of culture, memory and creativity. A series of documentary films featuring a selection of the exhibiting artists will play at the end of the exhibition. Until 30 June. www.wellcomecollection.org

Recommended- The Deutsche Börse Photography Prize 2013 - Now in its seventeenth year, the Deutsche Börse Photography Prize 2013 rewards a living photographer, of any nationality, for a specific body of work in an exhibition or publication format, which has significantly contributed to photography in Europe between 1 October 2011 and 30 September 2012. Until 30 June. http://thephotographersgallery.org.uk

Recommended- Designs of the Year 2013 - The Designs of the Year awards, ‘The Oscars of the design world' showcase the most innovative and imaginative designs from around the world, over the past year, spanning seven categories: Architecture, Digital, Fashion, Furniture, Graphics, Transport and Product. Until 7 July. www.designmuseum.org

Recommended- Julie Mehretu - Liminal Squared - This is Mehretu's first major solo exhibition in London and it features new and recent paintings, some of which are presented within a specially constructed environment designed by David Adjaye in close collaboration with the artist. Described by curator Douglas Fogle as ‘perfect metaphors for the increasingly interconnected and complex character of the 21st century’, Mehretu's large-scale paintings, which are built up in layers, employ a broad lexicon of drawing techniques together with a precise, muscular abstraction to investigate the intersection of politics, architecture and history and the way these forces shape the formation of our social identity. Until 7 July. http://whitecube.com

- Trade Routes - Trade routes have connected the major centres of civilisation in Europe and Asia since antiquity. These routes not only made the exchange of goods possible, but also fostered cultural exchanges between distant regions. The group exhibition, ‘Trade Routes’, presents a diverse picture of where these trade routes stand in today’s globalised society through the lens of 15 artists. The exhibition features video installations, sculptures and two-dimensional works by artists based in Africa, China, Europe, India, and the Middle East. Until 27 July. www.hauserwirth.com

Recommended- David Bowie is - The V&A has been given unprecedented access to the David Bowie Archive to curate the first international retrospective of the extraordinary career of David Bowie - one of the most pioneering and influential performers of modern times. David Bowie is will explore the creative processes of Bowie as a musical innovator and cultural icon, tracing his shifting style and sustained reinvention across five decades. The V&A’s Theatre and Performance curators, Victoria Broackes and Geoffrey Marsh have selected more than 300 objects that will be brought together for the very first time. They include handwritten lyrics, original costumes, fashion, photography, film, music videos, set designs, Bowie’s own instruments and album artwork. Until 28 July. www.vam.ac.uk

Recommended- Geoffrey Farmer: The Surgeon and the Photographer - Developed over a three-year period, Geoffrey Farmer’s The Surgeon and the Photographer will be shown for the first time in its completed form for its UK premiere. The work consists of hundreds of puppet-like figures, composed of images cut from old books and magazines mounted onto fabric forms, and is accompanied by a new film commission. His work blends the collage and assemblage traditions of Hannah Höch and Robert Rauschenberg, the element of chance employed by John Cage and Merce Cunningham, and an animist perspective from Pacific Northwest Coast cultures. Until 28 July. www.barbican.org.uk

Recommended- Summer Exhibition 2013 - The Royal Academy’s annual Summer Exhibition marks the start of the Summer Season. The world’s largest open submission contemporary art show, now in its 245th year, continues the tradition of showcasing work by both emerging and established artists in all media including painting, sculpture, photography, printmaking, architecture and film. The Summer Exhibition attracts a high volume of entrants annually with over 11,000 entries received in 2012. As in recent years the range of printmaking practices will be explored and an emphasis will be placed on works of a moderate size, which will return to their traditional home in the Small Weston Room. The common ground between photography and painting will be investigated in one of the larger galleries and the meeting points between sculpture and architecture will also be considered. Until 18 August. www.royalacademy.org.uk

Recommended- John Armleder: Quicksand - The show is inspired by the presence of many of the artist's works in the collections of Nicolai Frahm and Frank Cohen, and, using them as a starting point, develops multiple dimensions of Armleder's art through his own intervention in both planning and installing the exhibition route. John Armleder has been a key figure on the contemporary art scene since the early 1970s and, despite the fact that critics, younger artists and the market have widely acknowledged his influence, he remains a difficult figure to define or classify within a movement. Until 18 August. http://dairyartcentre.org.uk

- The Alternative Guide to the Universe - This exhibition surveys the work of individuals who create alternatives in art, science and architecture. The exhibition is focused on self-taught practitioners whose work is generally produced outside of established channels and official institutions. The Alternative Guide to the Universe features a range of contributors from fringe physicists to the inventors of new languages, from artists who map cities of the future to others who design imaginary technologies. Inspiringly original and bracingly eccentric, their work re-imagines our social and cultural conventions in ways that fearlessly depart from accepted ways of thinking. Taken together, it conjures a kind of a parallel universe where ingenuity and inventiveness trump common sense and received wisdom. Until 26 August. www.southbankcentre.co.uk
