Present Imperfect
The former Estée Lauder headquarters, now dilapidated and ‘on the edge of dereliction’, serve as the venue for this two-day exhibition by new art collective Present Imperfect. Presenting a series of artworks developed over the past year, the artists consider the changing nature of art making and exhibition production, in particular the way ‘the site of production has now invaded the exhibition itself, and creation and presentation are conflated’.
Wednesday 6 & Thursday 7 June 2018, Estée Lauder Building, 73-75 Grosvenor Street, London W1K 3BQ.

Subtitled ‘Textiling with the more-than-human world’, this group exhibition takes a look at the ways the practice of creating textiles is used across species, time, place and materials. On Thursday 7 June artists Juliet Duckworth and Alison Harper will discuss their work, and the following day on Friday 8 June Tim Parry-Williams will discuss the techniques used by Japanese post-punk Boro embroiderer Junko Oki.
Until 10 June 2018, Fringe Arts Bath 2018, 6 New Bond Street Place, Bath BA1 1BH.

Complementary Opposites

5-16 June 2018, Willesden Gallery, 95 High Road, London NW10 2SF.
