21st Century Women, Unit London, Mayfair


This will be an iconic group exhibition of upcoming, and current female artists. Some of these include Jenny Saville and Charlotte Colbert, two fabulous new artists. The selection has been chosen by Jane Neal and Fru Tholstrup, especially for this exhibition. 21st Century Women are going to be presenting a range of work that looks at women’s roles in art as well as in society through the past century. This project took nearly a decade to complete, and you will really be able to tell all the time that went into this exhibition, when you see it in its full glory.

The exhibition will be taking place between 16th October and the 3rd November. You can see this stunning collection of beauty from 10am to 7pm.


Adam Pendleton: Our Ideas, Pace Gallery, London


Pendleton is a US artist, whose work that is being showcased in this exhibition has been widely anticipated. This is a solo exhibition and will only feature the work of Pendleton but will feature a number of his internationally acclaimed pieces. These pieces have been inspired by what Pendleton refers to as ‘Black Dada’ and will be showcased alongside some of his other new work. The artist has used blackness and abstract to create these wildly anticipated pieces.

This exhibit will be running from 2nd October to the 9th of November. It will be open from Tuesday to Saturday and will remain closed for the other days of the week. So, if you want to see this exhibit, make sure that you have planned in advance to avoid disappointment. featured Image: © Adam Pendleton, Courtesy Pace Gallery


Hiding In Plain Sight, Amar Gallery, King’s Cross


This exhibition is likely to be epic. It is set to honour the work of abstract female artists in America between the 1950’s and 1960’s. These female artists have been largely pushed aside in favour of male artists, but no longer as this groundbreaking exhibition showcases the work that these women worked so hard on for so long. Even though they have contributed a significant amount to the art world, they have been pushed into shadows, but not for much longer. Head down to this display to see a wonderful selection of art and restore the balance by viewing the art of eleven female artists.

The exhibit will be running from 13th September to the 13th of December. It will only be open from Monday to Friday between the hours of 10am and 6pm.
