Coded Nature

    Must See
    Blending nature with technology and science is what Dutch duo Lonneke Gordijn and Ralph Nauta aka Studio Drift do best. Whether it's suspending concrete blocks mid-air, choreographing drones to mimic a flock of birds or inventing illuminated trees to roost within, this team know how to create atmospheric environments that enchant. We can't wait to get to Amsterdam's Stedelijk Museum to catch Coded Nature first hand. On now through to 26 August 2018. Image: Kerry Ryan McFate via Pace Gallery.

    Surreal Springtime

    Must See
    There's a magical world at Paleis de Tokyo in Paris featuring a imaginary forest full of flowers, a big red river, a lazy caterpillar and a bat in full flight. Well at least to us. It's the work of Daiga Grantina whose installation presents a playful and furious environment reminiscent of childhood set-ups made from whatever materials are at hand. Toll is on now through to 9 September 2018.

Experience it at the Japan House São Paulo through to June 3. Image courtesy Oscar Oiwa Studio, NY.

    Japanese Jaunt

    Must See
    Two takes on Japanese creativity caught our eye recently. First up we go back in time with the British Museum's Hokusai: Beyond the Great Wave exhibition expertly covered by Creative Review. The focus is on the last 30 years of Hokusai's career, which includes the oft appropriated image of the show's title and runs through to 13 August 2017. Here in Sydney the recently closed AGNSW show in Sydney took light and time as its theme showcasing video, photography, sound and installation art from the 1990s through to now.

    Flores Fabulosas

    Must See
    With a step to the side of what might be expected from a luxury brand, Loewe under the direction of Jonathan Anderson embarked on an exhibition at Real Jardín Botánico de Madrid late last year titled Past Present Future. Anderson’s ambition is that “Loewe should be a cultural brand,” which is clearly evident in the all encompassing show featuring archival imagery and extraordinary blooms by Steven Meisel, who worked with still lifes for the first, and hopefully not last, time. The arrangements, flowers, composition, light, colour et al are truly magnifico. Head over to Vogue for ...

    Seeing Differently

    Must See
    Giacometti, one of our all time favourite artists, is currently on show at Tate Modern, and in a stroke of genius the program includes a series of Interpreting Giacometti workshops with the Clay Collective. We'd love to express our figurative side and can be ready to board the next flight to London to take part. In the meantime we're in awe of his wisdom: "I am very interested in art but I am instinctively more interested in truth […] The more I work, the more I see differently."

    Get Your Greens

    Must See
    If stomaching your greens is hard to take, Work No. 1000 by Martin Creed may be just the ticket. It transformed 500 heads of broccoli into 1,000 different stamps by cutting each head in half. The result is a veritable forest of prints, each one a different colour with hues culled from nail polish, standard artist pigments and car colours to name just a few. The work is part of Say Cheese! at Voorlinden showing in The Hague through to June 11 2017.

    Must See
    Known for his wide-ranging photographic work, artist Wolfgang Tillmans has just opened his expansive exhibition titled 2017 at Tate Modern. Tillmans was associated with the fashion world via his groundbreaking, and often challenging imagery for alternative fashion bible i-D. The show brings together a range of work in array of forms from across his career. It sounds like a blockbuster to us. Creative Review kept us in the frame with their intriguing article.

    Modern Masters

    Must See
    We have so far been thwarted at every attempt to make it to the Heide Museum of Modern Art (due to a comedy of transport miscalculations) so although we wont stop trying, we sadly thought we were going to miss Making Modernism, an exhibition bringing together the work of Georgia O'Keeffe , Margaret Preston and Grace Cossington Smith. As it turns out we'll get our chance to see the these three groundbreaking female artists later in the year at AGNSW, all of whom pushed still life and space into new experimental realms. We have a new three month window from 1 July to 2 October and a ...
