Bye Bye Brazil at White Cube, Bermondsey, London, is an exhibition of work by the British-born American painter and film-maker Sarah Morris, in which she presents her most recent urban and social artistic investigation. Morris, who originally studied philosophy and politics, has created films that explore the notion of power – as, for instance, in Beijing, in which she went behind the scenes of the 2008 Olympic Games, and her series about Washington DC that included access to Bill Clinton in his last days at the White House. This solo exhibition includes a set of new abstract paintings and a feature-length movie, Rio, which reflects Morris’s impressions of the city.
White Cube, Bermondsey, London, until 29 September 2013.

Anselm Kiefer: Aperiatur Terra
Anselm Kiefer's London exhibition at White Cube, 'Aperiatur Terra', takes a quote from the Book of Isaiah as its title and, in doing so, conjures up images of destruction and re-creation, apocalyptic trauma and spiritual renewal with originality and drama. 'Aperiatur terra et germinet salvatorem, et institia oriatur simul' translates as, 'Let the earth be opened and bud forth a saviour, and let justice spring up at the same time'.
