Clare Shilland – Girls! Girls! Girls!

House of Propellers
5 Back Hill
London EC1R 5EN

Until 23rd September
Tuesday – Friday 10am – 6pm, Saturday 11am – 4pm


This is the debut solo exhibition from south Londoner and fashion photographer Clare Shilland. From a lifelong urge to be a female drummer comes this documentation of girls who are just that, an ambition she says was thwarted when she realised she had an inability to play the drums. Contrasting the two poles of Shilland’s personality, the tomboy and the femme, as well as beauty and bravado, movement and stillness, these images are both intimate and honest, qualities that are the backbone to all Shilland’s work.


Deceitful Moon

Hayward Gallery
South Bank Centre
Belvedere Road
London SE1 8XZ

Until 31st August
Open daily 10am – 6pm, late nights Friday until 10pm


“Opening 40 years after the Apollo 11 moon landings, the group exhibition Deceitful Moon does not mark the anniversary of this world-shaping event, but rather commemorates the longstanding doubt that it took place at all. Featuring work by British and international artists, the show explores the moon as a site for misrepresentation and mistrust, touching on a tradition of hoaxes and conspiracy theories that reaches back to at least the 18th century.”

Artists include: Tom Dale, William Hogarth, Aleksandra Mir, Karen Russo, Amalia Pica, Sam Porritt, Johannes Vogl, Grant Morrison & Cameron Stewart, Carey Young and Keith Wilson.
