Our eye on … London Shows

As part of a new series from our art team to coincide with our support of The Art Newspaper’s Art Market Eye newsletter, we have picked a list of exciting new shows opening in London.


Selected Highlights 

Bridget Riley – Lines of Enquiry at Lyndsey Ingram (17 September – 8 November 2019)

Ahead of a major retrospective of Bridget Riley’s work at the Hayward Gallery, London (23 October 2019 – 26 January 2020), Mayfair print dealer Lyndsey Ingram hosts a complete survey of the artist’s early black, white and grey prints from 1962 to 1968 (until 8 November 2019). Presented in dialogue with Classical statuary and Regency design, the show comprises an elegant and comprehensive approach to this seminal body of work.

Reconstructing Cezanne: Sequence and Process in Paul Cezanne’s Works at Luxembourg & Dayan (2 October – 7 December 2019)

Cezanne rarely dated his work, presenting significant challenges for both the market and scholarship. Art historian Fabienne Ruppen has developed new techniques for asserting and reordering the chronology of Cezanne’s output which form the subject of a new exhibition at Luxembourg & Dayan in London.

Lisa Brice at Stephen Friedman Gallery (27 September – 9 November 2019)

Following a breakout presentation at Tate Britain as part of the Art Now series at Tate Britain (April – August 2018), South-African born, London-based artist Lisa Brice opens her second solo exhibition at Stephen Friedman Gallery. Paintings and works on paper depict female subjects in private worlds, with nuanced references to male artists from the art historical canon known for the depiction of the female figures.

Gubbinal, co-curated with Sean Steadman at Project Native Informant (27 September – 2 November 2019)

An intergenerational group show co-curated with Sean Steadman, an artist from the gallery’s growing roster. Titled after a 1923 poem by Wallace Stevens, the exhibition includes fellow Royal Academy Schools graduate Sebastian Jefford, the late filmmaker Derek Jarman and an international potpourri of artists making ‘uniquely chimerical’ work.
