The New York-based artist’s first show with David Zwirner features recent large-scale sculptures made from a variety of natural and industrial materials including I-beams, concrete pedestals, shells, and peacock feathers. One of the works on view reuses the I-beams that formed Bove’s 2013 installation on the then-unfinished High Line park in New York City.

Copenhagen-based artist Tal R fills the lower level of Victoria Miro’s Wharf Road space with Raku-fired ceramic creatures, fabric-covered wood sculptures, and sofas made out of Scandinavian rugs. Upstairs, the artist’s paintings and drawings of a closed blind are shown inside an enclosed canvas corridor designed by the artist.

Swiss artist Roman Signer’s empty kayak (a recurring motif in the artist’s oeuvre) slowly navigates around the Barbican’s exhibition space as if gliding through water. Other kayaks installed in the foyer and outside extend the show beyond the confines of gallery.

Richard Diebenkorn’s first major survey in the UK in over twenty years traces the American artist’s alternation between abstraction and figuration starting in the 1950s. Among the over fifty paintings by the late artist are those from his famous “Ocean Park” series painted in Southern California between 1967 and 1988.
Amsterdam-based American artist Jo Baer’s first major solo show in a UK public gallery presents a recent series of canvases that were last seen at the São Paulo Bienal. Simultaneously figurative, abstract, and symbolic, Baer’s paintings represent interactions between man and nature while describing the artist’s own experience living in the remote Irish countryside.

The 108 new works on paper here by Francesco Clemente describe Indian urban landscape and traditions. Continuing a collaborative practice Clemente began in the 1980s, some parts of the intimately scaled watercolors were painted by traditional Rajasthani miniaturist painters.
