If you are in London over the next few weeks then here are three art exhibitions you will not regret adding to your schedule. With two based in the heart of central London, the third is back on home turf in Dulwich, so, weather permitting, a glass of rosé in the tranquil surrounds of the Dulwich Picture Gallery gardens will provide a perfect place to meditate on the days activities. Note, for collectors, works at the Rhed show and the Blue Minds, Turning Tides exhibition are for sale with the latter being an artistically high-profile fundraiser for The Blue Marine Foundation.

Rhed | As Above So Below

Runs through June and July

Contemporary artist and graduate of the Royal College, Rhed, will open his third show at the Tanya Baxter Gallery on the King's Road in Chelsea. Rhed has a cult celebrity following (including Madonna who attended his opening last year) as he depicts figures in interiors blending a post-war London School with reminiscences of Bacon, Kossoff, Freud, and a dash of early Picasso.

RHED Golden BrownGolden Brown

Rhed’s subjects are mostly friends and acquaintances and are named informally. There is a narrative streak that runs through the work and tension in the use of colour and distortion of pictorial space.

436 Kings Road, Chelsea, SW10 0LJ.

This fully immersive show offers wearable art, soundscapes, photography, installations, paintings, ceramics, films, sculptures, workshops, talks, interactive media, and discussion rooms.  Inspired by the tireless work of marine biologists and in association with The Blue Marine Foundation, Blue Minds exhibition makes explicit the mutuality artists share with scientists. 

As scientists have been quick to point out, ‘if the oceans go, we go!’ This exhibition is not only a feast for the senses but is part of a growing movement to restore the oceans that cover 70% of the Earth’s surface. 15% of all proceeds from works sold will be donated to The Blue Marine Foundation. Definitely, a show to check out

Unearthed: Photography's Roots will reveal the fascinating technical processes and narratives behind these images, showcasing innovations in photography by key figures including William Henry Fox Talbot and Imogen Cunningham as well as several overlooked photographers including rare works by Japanese artist, Kazumasa Ogawa and the English gardener, Charles Jones.

Jones’ striking modernist photographs of plants remained unknown for 20 years after his death, until they were discovered in a trunk at Bermondsey Market in 1981.
