In this week’s selection of top art events, you’ll find a virtual studio visit, a workshop series, discussion, and a couple of exhibitions. We hope you’ll have an exciting week!
Virtual Event | This event is part of Archiving the Mo(ve)ment by Okhiogbe Omonblanks Omonhinmin. Omonblanks takes us to visit Accra-based visual artist Eric Gyamfi in his studio virtually, for an introduction to his visual practice and a visit behind the scenes. Photography is a way of storytelling. Eric Gyamfi uses photography as a tool for social commentary, storytelling and documentation of the moment, as a mode of communication and social critique. The studio visit allows for a wider audience to explore his images and the stories behind them, and interact with the artist.
When: Tuesday, 30 June, 17:00 CEST, 15:00 GMT

Event in Berlin | Exhibition to honor artist Lars Arrhenius (1966–2020). ‘A-Z’, stands for the beginning and the end and is thus a synonym for the cycle of life. Lars’s work shows a section of the famous pre-digital London city map, A-Z, which generations of London’s residents and visitors have used to orientate themselves. Inspired by the graphics of the London underground map, Arrhenius distributes circular fields around this tableau that tell the stories of different people who meet and influence each other. The result is an absurd theatre that life itself could not design better.
Lars’s work will be shown alongside that of several gallery artists that have overlapping concerns. The contributing artists are: Richard Fauguet, Geissler & Sann, Joachim Grommek, Julia Gruner, Axel Lieber, Mutter & Genth und Beat Zoderer.
