This exhibition is a chance to see some of the beautiful and highly-affecting work by artists shortlisted for this year's Deutsche Börse Photography Prize at The Photographers' Gallery. It is fantastic, and a really good way to experience four entirely different approaches to contemporary political art photography in one place.
Dieter Roth: Diaries
Throughout his career, German-Swiss artist Dieter Roth (1930-98) worked with obsessive energy, his prolific output comprising installation, sculpture, drawing, video, assemblages and books. Much of his work was a diary of sorts - a record of his relentless and impassioned engagement with life.

Elinor Evans: Picasso's Pack
It is only fitting that Elinor Evans’ muse should be her loyal Dalmatian Picasso. He has appeared in many of her works over the years, his benign presence seemingly a calming force in the compositions. In her new solo show at Signal Gallery, she has taken this a step further and developed a distinctly canine theme and called the show Picasso’s Pack.

A photographer schooled on both sides of the Atlantic, Maier-Aichen’s work reflects on the dual influences of the history of photography and the history of painting. Focusing on the camera’s consummate power to establish typologies of thought, perception, and feeling, he produces images that, in mining the past, come to embody a matrix of issues highly relevant to photographic practice today.

Focus: Douglas Gordon: Play Dead; Real Time
In his video installations, Douglas Gordon (born 1966) plays with the cinematic techniques of duration, doubling and mirroring to explore the dynamic between audience and image. Play Dead; Real Time was filmed at an empty Gagosian Gallery in New York, where the artist arranged to have Minnie, a four-year-old Indian elephant, brought in to perform a series of tricks on the command of her off-screen trainer.
Focus: Keith Arnatt: Sausages and Food
In the late 1960s, the pioneering British conceptual artist Keith Arnatt used photography as a way of documenting performative acts that question – often through a linking of an image with philosophical text – the status of art and the role and identity of the artist.
Focus: Rose Wylie
In May 2013 Tate Britain will present an exhibition of new and recent work by painter Rose Wylie. Wylie makes large scale energetic and compelling images drawn from memory and inspired by her veracious appetite for visual culture, whether ancient wall paintings, work by other artists, films, news stories or her observation of daily events.

From the Shadows: The Prints of Sydney Lee RA
A relatively small show, compared to others at the RA, From the Shadows is billed as the first retrospective of the printmaker-painter Sydney Lee since 1945: for me, far too long. Lees is a talent to remember and From the Shadows an exhibition well worth seeing.

Geoffrey Farmer: The Surgeon and the Photographer
Geoffrey Farmer's exhibition at the Barbican Curve, The Surgeon and the Photographer, is made up of hundreds of handmade puppets, each constructed from newspaper and magazine cuttings stuck onto a cloth body. The exhibition immerses the viewer into a fantastical world created by the manipulation of mass-produced and common material to wonderful, unsettling effect.

George Bellows (1882-1925)
The Royal Academy gives the UK the first chance to appraise George Bellows, an undervalued artist virtually unknown outside of the US. Bellows is an artist of worthy technical skill and a variety of styles and subject matter, and this exhibition leaves you wondering what masterpieces he might have created had it not been for his untimely death.
