Five Art Things to check out

Schalk van der Merwe

The Five Art Things feature is intended as a regular, almost certainly weekly, or something like weekly, a weekly round up of recommended art events, five shows exhibitions and things we rather think might be worth checking out. Mostly London for that’s where we currently operate and explore, and with no claims that these are “the best five” or the “Top Five”, we’re not one of those art websites that ignore most things whilst claiming to be covering everything and proclaiming this or that to be the “top thing” or the “best thing”. this is simply just regular list of five or so art things coming up soon that we think you might find as interesting as we do…..

Of course if you have something you think should be covered then please do make contact, direct e.mail is best (communication is a good thing), you can’t be moaning about the lack of coverage if you’re not communicating
