Skylines – El Anatsui (2008)

The October Gallery’s summer show features some of the gallery’s best-known artists, including Rachid Koraïchi, Nnenna Okore and Owusu-Ankomah. The centrepiece, however, is El Anatsui’s gargantuan Skylines?, which has never been seen before in London. El recently drew attention at the Bonhams Africa Now auction, where his piece New World Map sold for £541,250, setting a new world record for the artist’s work.

Show: 31st May – 23rd June

Opening hours: 12.30-5.30, Tues-Sat
