David Ogle: A Horizon Collapsed
Mark Devereux Projects presents a solo exhibition of new and recent works by Liverpool-based artist David Ogle at Standpoint Gallery. Comprising sculpture, video, photography and drawing, Ogle’s experimental works respond to the contours, forms and environmental changes in rural landscapes. The show includes a new series of miniature maquettes, derived from recent projects in natural landscapes, which spread through the gallery space, alongside recent videos and photographs, which use light and smoke to capture singular fleeting moments.
Until 30 November, Standpoint Gallery, 45 Coronet Street Hoxton London N1 6HD, www.a-n.co.uk/events/david-ogle-a-horizon-collapsed/

This group exhibition at Arthouse1 brings together seven contemporary artists who explore the creative potential of repetition and the use of iterative sequences. The artworks, which include geometric drawings, reliefs and sculpture, feature repetitive patterns made through rotational movement, super-imposed forms, the off-setting of a motif or a repeated action such as rhythmic mark making. Through these manipulations, the artists create an array of complex forms, structures and compositions. The artists exhibiting are: Tony Blackmore, Jeannie Driver, Ben Gooding, Maribel Mas, Brigitte Parusel, Wendy Smith and Kate Terry.

A Gathering of Unasked Possibility
An exhibition and series of events by artists, researchers and activists who interrogate a progressive response to our contemporary moment through their practices to ‘resist the pull of anger and despair’. The changing daily programme includes talks, film screenings, panel discussions, workshops, meditation, a candlelight vigil for hope, and an activist skill-swap, all aiming to inspire the ‘exchange of ideas, new ways of thinking and agency as creatives and citizens’.

Urban Rural Exchange
This exhibition at Spitalfields Studios marks the culmination of a year-long collaboration between artists James Aldridge, who is based in rural Wiltshire, and London-based Karen Wood. Both artists’ work focuses on exploring and responding to the areas in which they live and work, and together they have met and walked in London and Wiltshire regularly across the past year, using a range of media to record their interactions with architecture, wildlife and people. Documentation of the Urban Rural Exchange project can be found on Instagram.
Until 27 December, Spitalfields Studios, 7-15 Greatorex Street, London E1 5NF, www.a-n.co.uk/events/urban-rural-exchange-exhibition/
