Jonathan Anderson is in the process of falling back in love with London. “With the COVID-19 pandemic, with Brexit, I think there’s been a bit of fatigue around the idea of what the city can be,” he explains. “Coming out of the haze of crisis, over the past year I’ve realized how much London has given me, and how much I love the city.”

It’s the topography of the British capital—the winding and dimly lit alleys of Soho, its red-walled pubs (which across the country are vanishing at a rate of two a day), its concrete skateparks—that has inspired “On Foot,” Anderson’s latest art exhibition at Offer Waterman gallery in Mayfair. The show offers a curatorial meander across the city, bringing together in dialogue—like commuters, flâneurs, or tourists—contemporary artists and canonical modern British artworks, alongside sculptural and figure-transforming fashion designs from Anderson’s eponymous label JW Anderson and Loewe.

A new solo exhibition by artist Maria Kapajeva entitled “Hear My Scream, Listen To Their Dreams” opened at Tallinn’s Draakoni Gallery on Wednesday. The content of the exhibition is strongly influenced by the gallery’s location directly opposite the Russian Embassy.

According to a press release, Kapajeva’s aim with the exhibition is to foster a more nuanced dialogue regarding the ongoing war in Ukraine, which has led to the continual exposure of harrowing imagery.

Consequently, a process of desensitization has transpired, rendering people less able to empathize with the enduring violence faced by real individuals still fighting for their lives in Ukraine. The intricate details, nuances, and personal narratives have been reduced to easily shareable content that briefly crosses our screens before fading into obscurity.
