Private view: must-see gallery shows opening in September

Danh Vos studio Nick Ash

Danh Vo

White Cube, London

11 September-31 October

In recent months, Danh Vo has been holed-up at his farmhouse in Germany, making a contemplative series of works influenced by his surroundings of meadows, forests and farmland. These now travel from rural idyll to White Cubes very urban Bermondsey gallery. The Danish artist is a collaborator by nature and many pieces have been made with friends, as with his South London Gallery show last year, when he described one installation as “a constellation of people who have been formative for me”.

Linda Stark

David Kordansky Gallery, Los Angeles

19 September-24 October

Los Angeles-based artist Linda Stark makes kitschy and surreal paintings that poke fun at commercial conceptions of femininity, often visually referencing jewellery, cats, flowers and female genitalia, as well as dreams and myth. This marks her first show with Kordansky, who began representing the artist last year after her inclusion in the 2018 Made in LA biennial at the Hammer Museum. The exhibition of entirely new works will inaugurate the gallerys latest space, designed by the Thailand-born architect Kulapat Yantrasast.
