Luiz Zerbini, South London Gallery, London
‘Intuitive Ratio’, a solo show by the Brazilian artist Luiz Zerbini, features large-scale paintings referencing modernist architecture, contemporary culture and elements from the natural environment. Along with smaller abstract canvas works, the exhibition also includes a sculptural centre-piece – an elaborate combination of materials, including objects that create visual duality with the larger painted works. The exhibition also includes two films, which explore landscape and stillness, drawing on the perspective of a painter and glitches in digital camera technology.
Until 19 August 2018.

Jo Longhurst, Threshold Artspace, Perth
One part of the London-based artist‘s multi-site solo presentation ‘New Order, Other Spaces’, this exhibition is part of Festival 2018, the cultural programme for the 2018 European Sports Championships in Glasgow. Presented by Horsecross Arts and co-curated by Tiffany Boyle and Iliyana Nedkova, ideas of perfection, gender, gesture and inter-generational understandings of movement are explored through the gymnastic body. Along with photography, installation and performance it includes new moving-image works – both collaborations with gymnasts of all ages, and responses to archival research into the life and work of dancer, choreographer and teacher Margaret Morris.
Until 22 November.

Katrina Palmer, Yorkshire Sculpture Park
An intervention in the landscape at YSP, The Coffin Jump is part of 14-18 NOW, the UK’s arts programme to mark the first world war centenary. Comprising an inscribed fence above a trench occasionally activated by a horse and rider, the work is inspired by the role of women in the war, specifically referencing the all-female First Aid Nursing Yeomanry (FANY). Palmer’s work combines sculpture, soundtrack and performance and symbolises the new challenges and freedoms afforded to women in the war. Co-commissioned by 14-18 NOW and Yorkshire Sculpture Park.
Until 16 June 2019.

Evan Ifekoya: Ritual Without Belief, Gasworks, London
London-based artist Evan Ifekoya presents this solo show which transforms the gallery space and explores ideas around rituals, belief and notions of abundance. Combining installation and a six-hour sound work which the artist describes as ‘a black queer algorithm across generations, locations and political affiliations’, Ifekoya creates an imposing and evolving space that references a range of influences, including the 1970s New York club The Loft, the 1990 photographic work Bodybuilder with Bra by London-based artist Ajamu X, and the calming ebb and flow of the sea.
Until 2 September 2018.
