London Exhibitions Not To Miss This June

Our monthly roundup of our favourite London based exhibitions this June, as curated by the BRUSHWRK team…


BRUSHWRK's recent exhibition, 'YES!'


The Vinyl Factory: Reverb

180 Studios

“180 Studios presents The Vinyl Factory — Reverb, a major multimedia exhibition exploring the intersection of art and sound. In the largest show of its kind, The Vinyl Factory brings together over 100 artists and musicians – working across mediums including visual arts, music, film and live performance”


‘So, so, so’ 

Goldsmiths Centre for Contemporary Art 

Opening 20th June 



‘‘'So, So, So’ marks the first UK solo exhibition of Galli (b.1944, Germany). Spanning painting, books, collages, and drawings, the exhibition includes works from across her decades long practice.


Galli’s work is a powerful current position on corporeality in a fractious and violent age that proposes an exhilarating, ribald, and haunting grammar of the body. The exhibition’s title – ‘So, So, So’ – refers to the melodic cadence of the artist’s speech, and, in both English and German, gestures to openness, something to come, and excess"


‘The Sand In The Pearl’, Sophie Goodchild 

Trafalgar Avenue

24 May - 22 June 2024



“The Sand In The Pearl is a new body of work by Nottingham-based artist Sophie Goodchild informed by the healing and nurturing properties of wool. 


It is an extension of Sophie’s research into ‘Wool as a Cloak for Survival: The Alchemy of Form and Fabric’ and explores from an interpretive symbolic perspective how the spiral, a motif found in landscape, architecture, and throughout the natural world, emulates cyclical movements and helical structures and its relation to chaos and (dis)order within the mundane. 


The exhibition is centred on a series of felted tapestries drawing from the artist’s experience of early motherhood, each encapsulating memories and moments of care, nourishment and comfort. The works’ layered surfaces reference natural phenomena, biological processes and geological time; storms and whirlpools, breastfeeding and osmosis, fossilisation and stratification.


As a portal to the bridge or (non)space between a contemporary diaristic revelation of early motherhood and the mother archetype, the exhibition challenges ideas ingrained in the collective unconscious and repositions this state of being, this new environment, within something more tangible and tactile”

“Ronchini is proud to present Kate Burling: Softness as a Torrent, the fourth exhibition of our Nothing To See Here program.

The Future of Loneliness

Guts Gallery 

30 May - 25 June



“Guts Gallery is excited to present The Future of Loneliness, a group exhibition curated by Maria Dolfini (@mia.merilu). Drawing from Olivia Laing’s homonymous essay, the show explores interpretations of loneliness and intimacy in present times, probing the impact of current technological and social structures on our ability to connect and find authenticity in human contact”


Swim

Cob gallery 

31 May - 22 June



“SWIM is the title of Peter Spanjer’s site-specific exhibition representing the culmination of extensive research and development as the third recipient of the Cob Award. The exhibition features an installation of the narrative based moving image work produced by Peter Spanjer in collaboration with Foreign Body Productions. The screening of the film will take over the studio space in an immersive exhibition. 


Drawing on his ongoing interest in hydrophilia in queer cinema and literature, this particular body of work explores the role that public space plays in black queer love stories whilst forming a visual language built up of references of archive queer imagery. As well as his continued exploration into video techniques Spanjer’s film SWIM focuses on the development of his approach to writing and building scripts; this being his first narrative based work. Illuminated by the works of Langston Hughes to Hilton Als to Rinaldo Walcott, Spanjer seeks to carve out his own way of storytelling through an investigation into the semantics of intimacy. The final presentation sees the artist take curatorial autonomy over the installation of the work in order to further the narrative focus”


Sun Wreck 

Gallery Rosenfeld 

Until the 15th June 



“Gallery Rosenfeld is delighted to present ‘Sun Wreck’, the second solo exhibition of British artist Araminta Blue. These large-scale, immersive oil paintings take figuration to the extreme, such that they border on abstraction. Vivid light and rich colours are dispersed across the canvas through turbulent, fizzing water and sweeping figures.

 

The artist explains her thoughts about this latest body of works. Certainly, in respect to her previous exhibition, the strength and brightness of colour has become bolder and filled with positivity and joy which is surely related to the wonders of new parenthood which the artist is currently experiencing to the full. This has awakened in the artist, extremes of sensation and emotion but coupled with hope and fear. Nature is ever-present in these works, particularly wind, water and light yet also birth and pain”


Exoskeleton

Public Gallery 

May 29th - June 29th 



“We’re delighted to announce 𝘌𝘹𝘰𝘴𝘬𝘦𝘭𝘦𝘵𝘰𝘯, a duo exhibition of painting and sculpture by artists Rose Nestler and Veronika Pausova opening May 29 in conjunction with London Gallery Weekend. Through a shared theatricality and penchant for the absurd, Nestler and Pausova negotiate provisional relationships with familiar objects, balancing a symbiotic web of interdependent elements left purposefully unresolved in a perplexing matrix of gesture and form”

V&A South Kensington 

Closes 5th January 2025



“An unparalleled selection of the world's leading photographers, telling the story of modern and con
