Tal R: Sexshop at Victoria Miro, Wharf Road


Cophenhagen based artist Tal R brings a new exhibition to London. The works set out to 'bring a quizzical eye to the largely unconscious actions of seduction, desire and gratification'. The gallery states, "Tal R navigates a terrain between abstraction and representation, as well as a long history of art that interrogates inside and outside space".


Private View: Tuesday, 19 September, 6-8 PM
