Australia

See something that goes beyond the usual old-European-art exhibitions. In a bold and exciting presentation, the Royal Academy of Arts is hosting a collection of Australian art since 1800, brought to the UK by the National Gallery of Australia. Starting with modern Aboriginal art and moving on to works from the early colonial period to the present, it really shines in the pieces by more recent artists, revealing something of the true spirit of the vast nation. All month.

Oscar Murillo

Have one of those ‘But is it art?’ moments with a friend and go see the first major solo exhibition by London-based Colombian Oscar Murillo. The artist emptied the contents of his studio for this free exhibition at the South London Gallery, revealing a gloriously oddball collection of paintings, constructions, works in progress and general ‘mess’, that reflects Murillo’s creative process. Until Dec 1.

Sculpture in the City

Take a friend on a stroll around the City and see if you can trick them into believing that the flurry of office chairs hanging in mid-air are really about to fall on your heads. The City of London (around Bishopsgate, Lime Street and the Gherkin) has become an open-air gallery for works by some of the world’s great artists. Explore the streets and stumble on Robert Indiana’s ‘LOVE’ sculpture, Antony Gormley’s life-sized figures and a trio of giant steel dinosaurs by Jake and Dinos Chapman. All month.
