The evening terrace delivers the view of the summer’s end. You, with sunglasses and tea, add an hour to the twilight breeze. Wicker and linen abide with sandals upraised on the stone slate of the fountain…. A bird is nesting in the pergola. A willow leans in to the shade and weeps. The complacent canicule curbed and the days grow shorter with the laughter of children neatly subsiding…. Here is our look back on the week in the arts.
Memory Palace is a major group exhibition extending across White Cube’s London galleries featuring more than 90 works by over 40 artists, including Cerith Wyn Evans, Robert Irwin, Andreas Gursky, Etel Adnan, Georg Baselitz, Anselm Kiefer, and others, inspiring reflections on the forms and themes of memory. On view through September 15, 2018 at White Cube.
