Beatriz Milhazes at White Cube
Now–July 1
“Rio Azul” is Beatriz Milhazes’s first exhibition at White Cube, featuring a collection of new painting, sculpture, collage, and the artist’s first tapestry. The Brazilian artist’s work displays a myriad of vivid colors and geometric shapes, alluding to artists like Henry Matisse and Sonia Delaunay. The tapestry Rio azul (which measures at 16 meters tall and nearly 3 meters wide), was created over a period of two years in collaboration with the master weavers at Pinton Mill in France.

“Bumped Bodies” at Whitechapel Gallery
Now–August 12
The final installation in the ISelf collection, “Bumped Bodies,” is a series of new works by 23 international artists. Each work on display explores the relationship between the body, objects, and environments by showcasing deconstructed perspectives of bodies interacting with inanimate objects. The artists featured in the exhibition include Sarah Lucas, John Stezaker, and Wael Shaw (whose piece Cabaret Crusades: The Path to Cairo depicts the an Arab take on the story of the crusades using puppets).

Lee Ufan at Serpentine Gallery 
Now–July 29
Serpentine’s exploration of public art continues with a commissioned sculpture by Lee Ufan. Part of the artist’s “Relatumseries, RelatumStage is a mirror-and-rock composition made as a poetic reflection of its natural and industrial surroundings where it resides in Kensington Gardens. The South Korean-born artist first became known in the 1960s for being apart of the avant-garde Mono-ha group, a Japanese contemporary art movement.

Mary Corse at Lisson Gallery
Now–June 23
Mary Corse’s debut show at Lisson Gallery is a selection of 10 historically significant paintings ranging from 2003–2018. The Los Angeles-based artist’s work explores the qualities of light and perception to a point at which she is able to embody light rather than simply represent it. The exhibition includes pieces from Corse’s “White Black White” and “White Inner Band” series and seven new works made specifically for the exhibition.

“Surface Work” at Victoria Miro
Now–June 16
“Surface Work” is an inter-generational exhibition of female abstract painters. The exhibition showcases the work of over fifty international artists, including Rita Ackerman, Sarah Cain, Prunella Clough, and Bharti Kher. It celebrates women who have helped shape in the past and continue to influence the language and definition of abstract painting.
