While some museums remain shuttered due to the Covid-19 pandemic, Apollo’s usual weekly pick of exhibitions will include shows at institutions that are now reopening as well as digital projects providing virtual access to art and culture.
A career-spanning survey of the Grenada-born artist Denzil Forrester reveals his lifelong interest in the sights and sounds of music scenes and city life. Energetic paintings of the tightly packed, strobe-lit dub and reggae clubs that Forrester frequented while living in London in the 1980s and ’90s prove to be precursors to a new series of works, which capture the bright lights and jostling crowds of open-air clubs in Kingston, Jamaica. The exhibition reopens on 4 August and has been extended to 31 August (it will then travel to Spike Island in Bristol). Find out more from Nottingham Contemporary’s website.
