Review - Critic's Choice - Desai

Critic’s Choice Whatever the show, Desai’s gallery is worth a visit, says Andrew Mead

The eastward drift of London’s modern art galleries continues with a new building by Bobby Desai of Clarke: Desai for Anthony Wilkinson in Vyner Street, Hackney. Wilkinson’s previous premises were quite close by, but he must have prospered there because his new base is much more spacious. It keeps the scale of its two-storey neighbours but its black painted facade and projecting first-floor window suggest there’s something worth investigating within: in this case, a show by David Batchelor which extends over the gallery’s two floors.
