Jan 15–Apr 19. This exhibition offers British audiences a splendid oppor- tunity to explore the enigmatic world of de Chirico through rarely-seen sculptures reflecting the artist’s fascination with classical myth and legend. It will also feature a selection of drawings on related themes by the father of pittura metafisica. Pablo Echaurren: Iconoclast. Mar 19–May 18. A display of collages by Pablo Echaurren, reflecting the artist’s fascination with cartoon imagery and containing fragments from Futurist publications. The Years of La Dolce Vita. Apr 30–Jun 29. This exhibition draws on the archive of Marcello Geppetti – one of the inspirations for the character of Paparazzo in La Dolce Vita (1960) – as well as a number of photographs taken on the set of the film. Candid and evocative, these images not only capture a period of remarkable creativity, but also changed the face of photojournalism for ever. Wed–Sat 11–6, Sun 12–5, first Thur of month until 9 In conjunction with Time Out First Thursdays, open until 9pm on first Thur of each month during Giorgio de Chirico: Myth and Mystery. t 020 7704 9522 f 020 7704 9531 Gary Wragg ‘Bending Zones & Shifting Accents’ Tenacity is an underrated virtue in an artist’s ultimate recognition: Gary Wragg has always shown it in abundance and now, across a career spanning over five decades, he is finally getting some wider recognition for his hugely determined pursuit of a highly personal and intensely physical ‘take’ on abstract expressionism – a comprehensive two volume catalogue of his paintings entitled ‘Constant within the Change’ (published by Sansom & Co) and a show at the 30th Floor Gallery, Clifford Chance (map 30). With an introduction by Norman Rosenthal and essays by Matthew Collings, Hilary Spurling and Sam Cornish among others, these volumes lend convincing support to the idea that it really is about time Wragg got support from the public sector that his achievement deserves.
