Exhibitions we feel you should see:
Rashid Johnson: ‘Shelter’ South London Gallery, Free, running until 25th November.
‘For his first solo exhibition in London, New York-based artist Rashid Johnson presents an entirely new body of work in the South London Gallery’s main space. Inspired by the idea of an imagined society in which psychotherapy is a freely available drop-in service, Johnson’s installation of large-scale paintings, hanging plants, Persian rugs and four wooden day beds questions established definitions of the art object and its limitations, as well as the relationship between individual and shared cultural experience.’
Vanley Burke, Bob Shipman & Bob Treadwell: ‘Reflections on ‘The Gambia” Mon 12 – 30th November, Park View Gallery, 70 Vicarage Rd, Kings Heath (no website yet).
Social Fabric: Sally Harper works with local Kings Heath residents over 8 weeks, to represent the local community in textiles.

Central Youth Theatre requires a visual artist:
‘We are seeking an artist who can work with us during 2013 to help us create a hall of fame. We wish to make handcastings of former members and mount these on a wall in our premises in Wolverhampton. We need an artist who can initially advise us on the best way to approach this project – how we can realise it practically, and who then has the availability at various points through 2013 to do hand casting sessions.
In the first instance we are seeking expressions of interest from West Midlands based artists.
Please email a CV and supporting letter to firstname.lastname@example.org ‘
