The mystery of one of the most famous pharaohs of Ancient Egypt - Tutankhamun has been captivating the world for 100 years. On November the first, 1922 CE, British explorer Howard Carter 'stepped on a platform he found after clearing ancient debris from the construction of tombs.' It was the first step of a sunken staircase leading to the tomb of the of King Tutankhamun. If Carter wouldn't persist in his quest, we would have never known this fascinating story of the boy king! For the first time, Saatchi Gallery brings a collection of 150 artefacts together in one space to tell the story of the life of King Tutankhamun. More than 60 of artifacts are exhibited outside of Egypt for the first time! It is truly a once in a lifetime opportunity to see these precious findings!

Sterling Ruby is an American artist, who works with a large variety of media. This is his first solo exhibition at Gargosian, Britannia Street. The artist himself described the use of different media as 'a kind of schizophrenic labour strategy. There is a lineage that links everything that I do together.' The exhibition will consist of two series of works: ACTS (2006–18) and TABLES (2015–19). A large number of works presented at the gallery span between sculpture, ceramics, videos and drawings. However, all works are connected by a narrative that explores ' themes of societal and art historical friction, generating feelings of anxiety and agitation '.

Alison Jacques Gallery is hosting second solo exhibition of Oxlade’s work on paper. It will reveal to visitors, artists endless experiments and studies of crayon and pastels, as an important medium. ‘The works in the exhibition are also reflective of recurring motifs in Oxlade’s art, such as the juxtaposition between object and subject; and the grid format, which was relied upon to create order.’
