Anri Sala
Until 20 November

Leading contemporary artist Anri Sala’s exhibition is conceived as a cycle, or loop, structured around pairs of works that mirror each other throughout the Serpentine Gallery’s spaces. Many of the works presented use live performance as their starting point or lead to a performance. Sala will stage the performance 3-2-1, 2011, in which saxophonists Andre Vida and Caroline Kraabel will respond live to the artist’s film Long Sorrow in a series of daily performances. Concurrent with the Serpentine Gallery exhibition, Artangel presents 1395 Days without Red by Anri Sala. artangel.org.uk..

Final Week:
Serpentine Gallery Pavilion
Designed by Peter Zumthor
Until 16 October

The Serpentine Gallery Pavilion 2011 is designed by world renowned Swiss architect Peter Zumthor. Named hortus conclusus, it is Zumthor’s first completed building in the UK and at its heart is a specially created garden by the influential Dutch designer Piet Oudolf. With a refined selection of materials Zumthor creates contemplative spaces that evoke the spiritual dimension of our physical environment, emphasising the role the senses and emotions play in our experience of architecture. This year’s Pavilion is the 11th commission in the Gallery’s annual series, conceived by Gallery Director Julia Peyton-Jones.

It is the world’s first and most ambitious architectural programme of its kind.

The Serpentine would like to thank the individuals, trusts, foundations and companies whose generosity and foresight enable the Gallery to realise its acclaimed Exhibition, Architecture, Design, Education and Public Programmes.
