Now in its third year, London Gallery Weekend (2–4 June) has rapidly grown to become the largest gallery-led event of its kind in the world, with more than 125 exhibitors from across the capital staging exhibitions and performances. Apollo’s editors pick out the ones they’re most looking forward to.
Lisa-Marie Harris: Responses (To things I’ve been told about my body)
Cooke Latham Gallery
The first solo exhibition of Lisa-Marie Harris’s work in the United Kingdom examines the ways that women’s bodies are monitored, commodified and shamed. With a collection of tactile sculptures, wall-mounted reliefs and films, Harris reflects on her personal experiences of objectification both as a child in Trinidad and as a mother in London. On 3 June at 11am, she presents her performance work Cover Yourself in which she interacts with the works on display, accompanied by a soundtrack of calypso, soca and an audio narrative.
