The five best art exhibitions to see this weekend


After the art-fuelled nightmare that was Frieze week, things have calmed back down in the art world and returned to their normal, sedate, chin-stroking pace. But that doesn’t mean that there’s not a whole buttload of art to get in your eyeholes, no, no, no – there’s tons of good stuff out there. So we’ve done our bit to help you out, to separate the meh from yeh, and here’s our pick of the five best art exhibitions to see this weekend.
