★★★★ (@timeoutlondon) by eddy frankel: "[ortega] uses dot-to-dots to paint a figure, schematics of a gun to attack ‘post-truth’, printing diagrams to expose the tragedy of missing persons in mexico. ortega’s unspooling of life’s intricacies is his way of dealing with things, pulling everything apart to see how it works, to try desperately to understand". . don't miss #damianortega's exhibition #playtime at #whitecube #bermondsey, on until 12 november. . image: damián ortega, ‘percentual constellation’ (2017), fired glazed clay from zocatecas. © damián ortega. photo © white cube (ben westoby)

In #davidhammons 'untitled (body print)' (1975), featured in #fromthevaporofgasoline, the artist drapes himself in the american flag. the work foreshadows his hybrid 'african-american flag' (1990) which hangs outside the @studiomuseum in harlem and intertwines the official history of the usa with those of colonialism, slavery and rebellion. . the exhibition runs until 21 october at #whitecube mason's yard and is part of @wallpapermag and @stjameslondon's free, self-guided art and design walk next week, 19 & 21 october. #stjamesartwalk . image: david hammons, untitled (body print), 1975, silkscreen and ink on paper, © david hammons, courtesy white cube
