Some of you might remember The Weather Project (The Giant Sun) at the Tate’s Turbine Hall in 2003. This year, the same artist Olafur Eliasson returns to the Tate with a new solo show. His interest in colour and complex geometry will be explored in the form of installations and sculptures addressing social and climate issues. In addition to the exhibition, every other week visitors will be able to communicate with people from Eliasson’s team in his Berlin studio via a live link!

Venue: Gagosian Gallery Address: 20 Grosvenor Hill, Mayfair, London W1K 3QD Cost: Free Dates: Thursday, June 6 – Saturday, August 3, 2019
Francis Bacon is one of the most influential painters of the 20th century; his distorted images of friends and fellow artists alongside everyday objects radically altered the genre of figurative painting. This summer, Gagosian Gallery presents a new show with the collection of paintings that artist had been working on throughout his career. Titled ‘Couplings’, this body of work explores the relationship between two people, both physical and psychological.
Venue: David Zwirner Address: 24 Grafton St, Mayfair, London W1S 4EZ Cost: Free Dates: Until Friday, 26 July
This is Murillo’s 5th solo exhibition at David Zwirner. This year, the show presents large canvases full of colour and texture. In this series of work, the artist is letting go and finally becoming himself. If you look carefully, you’ll be able to spot over-painted lettering, ads and news excerpts. These canvases are full of emotions, and maybe even anger. It is worth taking a minute trying to connect to them and explore what emotion they provoke in you!
