  • Ruin Lust

    Tate Britain, 4 March - 18 May 2014
    ‘Ruin Lust’ is a fittingly great name for a superb idea for an exhibition – a Tate Britain survey about how art has addressed the strange attraction of ruined buildings, from the Romantic landscapes of Turner, Constable and Martin to photographs by John Nash, collages by John Stezaker, and moving image works by Tacita Dean RA.

  • Ryan Gander

    2 Willow Road, 1 March - 2 November 2014
    If you haven’t visited the Hampstead home of modernist architect Ernö Goldfinger – 2 Willow Road – then the next months are a particularly fine time to do so, as conceptual artist Ryan Gander displays new works in the house made in response to the objects Goldfinger designed and owned at the property.

  • Trisha Baga

    Zabludowicz Collection, 27 February - 11 May 2014
    London’s Zabludowicz Collection’s shows inventive video installations by Trisha Baga from this week. Although visitors wear 3D spectacles, her videos blend the latest eye-popping technology with footage that is grungy, chaotic and lo-fi, seemingly filmed in the young artist’s New York apartment.

  • Camille Henrot

    Chisenhale Gallery, 28 February - 13 April 2014
    French-born Camille Henrot won her Silver Lion at last year’s Venice Biennale – an award for the most promising young artist – for video Grosse Fatigue, a bombardment of moving images that playfully attempts to catalogue the history of the universe. London’s Chisenhale Gallery gives Henrot her first UK solo show from this week.

  • Art14 London

    Olympia, 27 February - 5 March 2014
    The best place this weekend to see a huge amount of modern and contemporary art under one roof is the art fair Art14. Based in Olympia’s Grand Hall and now in its second year, the fair showcases an interesting array of galleries – some focused on emerging artists, some more traditional, some from London, others as far afield as Iran, Brazil and Nigeria.
