Anish Kapoor:
Turning the World Upside Down Kensington Gardens

28 September 2010 – 13 March 2011

The Royal Parks and the Serpentine Gallery present a major exhibition of large scale outdoor sculptures by Anish Kapoor in the Royal Park of Kensington Gardens. The free exhibition will showcase a series of major recent works not previously shown together in London. Constructed from highly reflective stainless steel, the giant curved mirror surfaces create illusory distortions of the surroundings and are visible across large distances, creating new vistas in this famous and much-loved setting.

Klara Lidén
7 October – 7 November

Klara Lidén presents a series of existing and new films, installations as well as works on paper in her first major exhibition in the UK. Recalling a long history of performance art and conceptual work, Lidén reveals the hidden aggression and potential rebellion that rests under the surface of our cities and their inhabitants. Lidén was born in Stockholm, Sweden in 1979 and lives and works in Stockholm and Berlin. The exhibition is co-produced with Moderna Museet, Stockholm.

Edgware Road Project:
Marwan Rechmaoui in Residence
Until 18 October

The Serpentine Gallery’s Edgware Road Project links local and international artists with people living and working in this London neighbourhood. The Serpentine’s project has its base at the Centre for Possible Studies, in Seymour Street, home to screenings, events and an ongoing archive of work.

Final Week:
10th Serpentine Gallery Pavilion
Designed by Jean Nouvel

Until 17 October

This year’s Serpentine Gallery Pavilion is designed by world-renowned French architect Jean Nouvel. This is the 10th commission in the Gallery’s annual architectural series, the world’s first and most ambitious programme of its kind. It is the architect’s first completed building in the UK.

The Pavilion commission, conceived by Julia Peyton-Jones, has become an international site for architectural experimentation and follows a long tradition of Pavilions by some of the world’s greatest architects. The immediacy of the commission—a maximum of six months from invitation to completion—provides a unique model worldwide.

The design for the 2010 Pavilion is a contrast of lightweight materials and dramatic metal cantilevered structures. The entire design is rendered in a vivid red that, in a play of opposites, contrasts with the green of its park setting. The colour reflects the iconic British images of traditional telephone boxes, post boxes and London buses.
