Frances Richardson, 'Not Even Nothing Can Be Free From Ghosts', Standpoint Gallery, London
Winner of the 15th edition of the Mark Tanner Sculpture Prize, Richardson's solo show developed over the course of a year includes sculpture, video and drawings made from wood, veneer, and copper and responds to an interest in 'giving shape to nothingness'. Full of light and shade, intriguing moments and perspectives. An exciting winner of an important accolade.

Surface Work, Victoria Miro Galleries
My exhibition highlight of 2018 to date. A plethora of brilliant female abstract painters, presented across several elegant galleries with a straightforward but important premise. Beautiful in its simplicity and significant full stop. A full review of the show can be viewed here: https://www.nataliepace.co.uk/home/2018/5/21/surface-work-victoria-miro

Agadir, Yto Barrado, Barbican Curve Gallery
A sweeping and nuanced solo exhibition featuring film, murals, drawings and a lot of wicker! Discussing Morocco's reconstruction following it's devastating earthquake in 1960, the work is made all the more pertinent housed in he Barbican's labyrinthine gallery, itself a utopian response to postwar reconstruction. Haven't felt as moved by an exhibition in this space since 'Waste Not' by Chinese artist Song Dong.
