FAD Magazine's Top 7 Art Exhibitions to see in London

Law firm Collyer Bristow have, remarkably, now been using their offices to show art for 25 years*. And they’re big shows: 60-odd works by 20 artists appear in regulator curator Rosalind Davis’ latest, which uses a Talking Heads lyric even older than the gallery to set off thoughts about what the future might be like. Any danger of sci-fi similitude is countered by plenty of wit (eg Kitty Sterling, David Worthington, Sasha Bowles) and a good sprinkling of retro-futurism (Tim Ellis, John Greenwood and young German Arno Beck, who has the surprising idea in one of his age of using a typewriter to convert digital images into deliciously delicate analogue equivalents).

‘In the future all material items will be free.’ The show’s curator, Rosalind Davis, also informed me that it was the Gallery’s silver anniversary.
