Liam James, 'Self-portrait with flowers (presumed native)' (detail) 2015

Hello all you whirlwinders!

It has been an incredible few days, full of amazing shows, great conversations and talks between artists and audiences. Thanks to all of you who have come so far, and hope to see the rest of you in the coming fortnight. For now, here are just a few simple tips:

If you're into
The intergalactic – see The Horse
Clicktivism – see Camel
Empowered women – see PASSING

If you're not into
The patriarchy – see FEMPRE$$
The present day – see A-97
Big data – see Algorithmic Misfits

And if you're online and have something to say, hop on to Our disappearing present and have a chat.

See you around in the next few days, or even at Ships in the night at Gertrude Contemporary tonight!
