The fourth edition of London Gallery Weekend marks the city’s last major art event before the summer break, featuring 130 galleries hosting a vibrant array of exhibitions, talks, public performances, and parties. Covering both established and emerging artists, it promises something for everyone. Here are our highlights…

A retrospective of Nan Goldin’s early black-and-white images from 1972 to 1974, which captured special moments of her closest friends in Boston’s transgender community, is on display at Gagosian’s Burlington Arcade.

Over the past fifty years, Goldin’s artistic style has been greatly affected by these photographs, which portray themes of beauty, fragility, and gender ecstasy. Simultaneously, “Sisters, Saints, Sibyls”, a video triptych that explores individual and collective history, will be on display at Gagosian’s 83 Charing Cross Road exhibition.

At Stephen Friedman Gallery, Kenturah Davis’ first solo show in the UK, clouds, reflects on Black excellence and theoretical physics through a combination of hand-drawn portraits and drawings made with powdered indigo color.

Boscoe and Geoffrey Holder at Victoria Miro explores the multifarious careers of the Holder brothers, highlighting not just their accomplishments in dance and movies, but also their contributions to painting.

Harminder Judge’s A Ghost Dance at The Sunday Painter and Matt’s Gallery creates ethereal, suspended pieces by utilizing special material procedures to investigate spiritual and cultural topics.

Housed in a historic 1723 building, Hannah Levy’s Bulge at MASSIMODECARLO contains eerie sculptures that play with issues of design and utility.

Highlighting her inventive contributions to contemporary art, Lynda Benglis’s exhibition at Thomas Dane Gallery features Benglis’s recognizable sparkle knots and video pieces.

Inspired by his most recent film “Aggro Dr1ft,” Harmony Korine’s new acid-hued paintings at Hauser & Wirth provide a vibrant and dramatic visual experience.

Offering a thorough look at her creative development, Jacqueline de Jong’s most recent paintings Pippy Houldsworth Gallery converse with her earlier pieces from the 1960s.

Dayanita Singh’s latest photographic creations at Frith Street Gallery carry on her investigation of narrative and archive themes.

The London Gallery Weekend 2024 includes a full performance schedule offering free public access to live art events, developed in association with UP Projects. The program features performances by Nil Yalter, recipient of the 2024 Venice Biennale Golden Lion for lifetime achievement. Yalter’s participation underscores the event’s dedication to impactful, socially relevant art, as her work often addresses migration, memory, and cultural identity.
