Art shows to leave the house for in May 2023

This month promises a new iteration of Kusama’s Infinity Room, a late-night art walk around central London, an imagined darkroom illustrating the idea of pleasure as activism, and much more...

May’s list is brimming with artists who go their own way, whether through experimental art practices, uplifting underrepresented communities, or simply staying true to themselves. Although spring hasn’t really sprung here in the UK, London’s fairs and weekends, such as Photo London or the alternative Peckham24, as well as the annually awaited Bold Tendencies, are about to kick off, giving us all an extra incentive to get outside the house.

Artists such as Isaac Julien, Richard Bell, and Ajamu receive their flowers in London, Yayoi Kusama will send NYC into a frenzy once again with a new Infinity Mirror Room, and a younger generation of artists like Darryl Daley, Tizta Berhanu, and Lauren Halsey come into their own with strong solo shows around the world.
