Stop by Lazinc, a new gallery founded by Steve Lazarides and Wissam Al Mana, that opens this month to see artist JR’s work up close and personal. You’ll be greeted with a re-creation of one of his GIANTS 3D outdoor sculptures sited across Rio de Janeiro, depicting athletes whose identity was blurred behind the “perfect motion”. Get to know his large-scale community projects through his preparatory notes, photography and architectural drawings. This is the first time JR has shared his work in this way outside of private studio visits so it’s a real must!

Hyundai Commission 2017: SUPERFLEX

If you've not taken your turn on the three-seater swings yet, what are you waiting for? It's time to get down to the Southbank for a bit of extreme participation that characterises Superflex’s work. The installation is the latest in a series of artworks commissioned for the space, including Carsten Höller’s slides entitled ‘Test Site’ which set the mark pretty high on fun and fear factor back in 2006/7.
Free: Tate Modern.

Top tip: these installations at Tate Modern tend to get pretty busy at the weekend, so get there early to avoid the longer queues.
