Really enjoyed walking by the sea in the high winds at Margate last week and taking refuge at the Turner Contemporary to see Seeing Round Corners. From website:-
Turner Contemporary presents the first major exhibition to explore the centrality of the circle in art. Featuring more than 100 works – from 3000BC to the present day – Seeing Round Corners: The Art of the Circle brings together artworks and artefacts that reflect a vast range of themes and ideas from roundness, rotation and visual perception to wonderment and cycles of time. The exhibition encompasses sculpture, film, painting, design, installation, performance and photography, with works by leading historical and contemporary artists including Leonardo da Vinci, Paul Nash, Barbara Hepworth, JMW Turner, Theaster Gates, Rebecca Horn, David Shrigley and Bridget Riley.
At the Whitstable Biennale on Saturday night at the Tennis Courts and powered by the audience using bicycles to generate the electricity I really enjoyed the screening go In this World and Kingsland, introduced by Tony Grisoni. From the Biennale website "After an introduction by Tony Grisoni, we will screen Kingsland #1: The Dreamer (BAFTA nominated), a powerful drama written and directed by Grisoni, telling the story of a Kurdish immigrant who has arrived in North East London with nothing and finds himself involved in a dark world with fellow Kurds; and In This World (Berlinale Golden Bear winner), for which Tony Grisoni made the trek along the people smugglers’ route from the Pakistan/Afghan border, through Iran and Turkey to Europe with the director, Michael Winterbottom".
