Djordje Ozbolt: The Grand Detour, Holburne Museum, Bath
Djordje Ozbolt‘s paintings respond directly to the Holburne Museum’s collection, parodying works by Georgian artists including Gainsborough. The works in the show were created during Ozbolt’s residency at Hauser & Wirth Somerset, where the London-based, Belgrade-born artist also has a solo show opening later this month.

Memorial: A Tribute To Taxidermy, Horniman, London
Hastings-based ‘ethical taxidermist’ Jazmine Miles-Long – who only works with animals that have died from natural causes or as the result of a road casualty – presents new work inspired by pieces selected from the Horniman’s historic collection. Her pieces are presented alongside the museum’s works that inspired them, mirroring the positioning in cases of the originals as well as the placement of flora, tape and labels that have been added over time.
Until 1 May 2017. www.horniman.ac.uk
