Four awesome art shows to see in Mayfair this Saturday

Eddy Frankel

Get your fill of art this weekend with four cracking exhibitions, all within walking distance of each other, and all totally free.

If you like flames 🔥

Check out Mexican/Belgian artist Francis Alÿs’s awesome night-time walk through a Mexican town with a flaming football. UPDATE: Turns out this isn't open at weekends in the summer. Still a good shout for another day, I guess.

If you like tears 💦

Pioneering Dutch conceptual guy Bas Jan Ader disappeared mysteriously on a boat in the ‘70s, but not before making a tidy little body of awesome work, including a video of him crying for three minutes. We’ve all been there.

If you like nature 🌳

It’s all about forests and glades in the neatly abstract paintings and drawings of American artist Jim Hodges

If you like masks 👺

Mark Grotjahn is a young American artist who makes sculptures that look like ethnographic masks done by a pop artist. Cool.
