Chris Marker: A Grin Without a Cat at Whitechapel Gallery
© Chris Marker
16 April – 22 June
Visionary French filmmaker Chris Marker (1921–2012) creates vivid film-essays that lace realism with science fiction and lyricism with politics. Changing his name, declining to be photographed or interviewed, Marker is both enigma and legend. His influence extends across art, experimental film and mainstream cinema: his 1962 masterpiece La Jetée was the basis of Terry Gilliam’s 1995 Twelve Monkeys.
Gallery open Tuesday – Sunday 11am – 6pm
Andreas Gursky, Spreuth Mager Gallery and at White Cube gallery
© Andreas Gursky
14 April – 14 June | 30 April – 6 July 2014
From the moment he started making photographs to the present day, the landscape has captivated Andreas Gursky. This exhibition is the first to focus on a group of important early landscapes from the late 1980s to the early 1990s. Predating Gursky’s extensive use of digital technology, and characterised by what the artist has called an ‘extraterrestrial’ perspective, the pictures are titled simply and directly after the geographical location where they were taken.
Spreuth Mager Gallery open Tuesday – Saturday, 10am – 6pm | spruethmagers.com/ White Cube gallery open Tuesday – Saturday, 10am – 6pm, Sunday 12pm – 6pm
