Stephen Walter | The Island Book Signing at the Royal Academy | The World in a Mirror Exhibition | Antwerp

London Original Print Fair Exclusive Book Signing & Meet the Artist
Saturday 25th April | 1 – 2pm | RA Burlington House, Piccadilly | W1J OBD

We're delighted to announce that Stephen Walter will be joining us at the 30th anniversary of the London Original Print Fair at the Royal Academy this Saturday to sign copies of his eagerly awaited publication The Island: London Mapped, ahead of its official release on May 1st. This beautifully illustrated book reconfigures Stephen's critically acclaimed sold out map The Island, transforming it into his own version of a London street atlas which enables readers to explore his unique vision of the city by flicking through its pages.

Friday also sees the opening of 'The World In A Mirror' at MAS Antwerp, which features two of Stephen's richly imaginative and detailed maps, London Subterranea and Nova Utopia.

The exhibition presents a journey through the Western interpretation of the world, through 150 unique world maps, globes and objects. Stephen is one of only three contemporary artists exhibited, and his work adds his own distinctive reflections to this fascinating history.

Susan Stockwell | Sea Markings | Exhibition at Royal Shakespeare Company | Stratford Upon Avon

PACCAR Room and Foyers | Royal Shakespeare Theatre | Until 6 September

Susan Stockwell's exhibition 'Sea-Markings', now open at the RSC, was inspired by the company's summer season productions of Othello and The Merchant of Venice, and draws on the play's themes of trade, identity and diversity.

Comprising of a stunning suspended sail installation, which takes over the public spaces of the Royal Shakespeare Theatre, and a selection of new artworks combining currency, drawing and maps, the exhibition brings together work created during Susan's time as Artist in Residence at the company. Susan says of the experience:

"Working as Artist in Residence at the RSC is insightful, inspiration and enjoyable. Witnessing the inside workings of the organisation is revealing a very collaborative process, different to the visual artists' practice which tends to be more solitary...It is a great opportunity to push my work further and explore Shakespeare's poetry to make new art which I hope will surprise and wonder theatre visitors"

Katsutoshi Yuasa | Cleveland Museum of Art Exhibition

The stunning woodcut prints of Katsutoshi Yuasa are currently being featured in The Cleveland Museum of Art's exhibition 'Fresh Prints: The Nineties to Now.'

The exhibition showcases a wide range of printmaking techniques that have been utilized by contemporary artists over the past twenty years. Together the artworks demonstrate the incredible, diverse power of the medium, and express a range of ideas, from Katsu's exposition of the natural world, to the personal feminsim of Louise Bourgeois, and the abstraction of Richard Serra.
