New at VM Mayfair: spanning three generations, Asger Jorn, Per Kirkeby, and Tal R are all great Danish artist-experimenters. Non-conformist in attitude, all three can be said to be polymaths of their age, working across a spectrum of genre and media such as artists’ books, three-dimensional works, and architectural interventions. Yet it is painting that lies at the heart of their practice. On view until 23 March 2019.⠀

Join us tonight at VM Mayfair for the private view of Asger Jorn, Per Kirkeby, Tal R. This exhibition invites us to consider their work as part of a creative dialogue, one that focuses on three Danish artists but, in the end, transcends personal affiliation, geographical location and linear time. 6–8pm, all welcome.⠀

Victoria Miro is delighted to announce representation of US artist Howardena Pindell, in collaboration with Garth Greenan Gallery, New York. The first solo exhibition by the artist in the UK will be held at VM Mayfair in June 2019. The touring retrospective exhibition, What Remains To Be Seen, organised by the Museum of Contemporary Art Chicago, opens on 1 February at the Rose Art Museum in Waltham, Massachusetts.⠀
-⠀
Working across figuration, abstraction and conceptualism, Howardena Pindell has since the 1970s examined a wide range of subject matter, from the personal and diaristic to the social and political. Hers is a complex and nuanced body of work, a fusion of sensuality and intellectual enquiry in which texture, colour, structure and process are employed to mine history (and hidden histories) and address intersecting issues such as racism, feminism, violence and exploitation. ⠀

Opening next week at VM Mayfair: Asger Jorn, Per Kirkeby, Tal R — an exhibition celebrating three generations of internationally acclaimed Danish artists. Private view: Tuesday 22 January, 6–8pm, all welcome. ⠀
–⠀
Danish by birth or residence, each has looked simultaneously to Denmark and outwards to international movements and tendencies. United by an insistent materiality and characterised by an energised openness, the paintings and works on paper on view reveal a shared interest in the physical properties and expressive potential of their medium along with a deep understanding of its history and traditions. ⠀
–⠀
Continues until 23 March 2019⠀

Celebrating their forthcoming Crossrail commissions, artists Conrad Shawcross, Chantal Joffe, and Yayoi Kusama have created new window installations for Selfridges, which are on view until 29 March 2019. ⠀
–⠀
Echoing his installation for the new Western ticket hall at Liverpool Street station, Conrad Shawcross’s bronze sculpture, Harmonic Manifold 1 (5:4), is a visual representation of major third. Using this specific ratio between two notes, the piece describes a journey through space as the chord recedes into silence. Using projection mapping, the work is encircled by its own geometry, as if the viewer were inside the form looking outwards. ⠀
