DIY: Samantha Donnelly, Mia Goyette, Russell Hill, Hannah Regel, The RYDER Projects, PV 6-9pm
A few months after its opening, The RYDER has already made a name in East End cultural society. Strategically positioned by the historical Maureen Paley, The RYDER is hidden behind a heavy garage shutter. The space, though tiny, has been skilfully used to present enthralling show by upcoming talents. The latest is a reflection on the theme of DIY. Bypassing Duchamp, the readymade are only the first objects which are given a new identity through alteration. In this way, the final products come to correspond to one’s personal and specific needs rather than to those of the readymade consumers’ multitude.

Carsten Höller: Decision, Hayward Gallery, opens
Do you remember the slides in the TATE Turbine Hall? It was 2007. Did you miss them? If so, Hayward Gallery is giving you a second chance to experiment with the work of the master of immersive environments and ‘augmented’ reality. Decision is Höller’s largest survey of his work in the UK to date and it will examine perception and the decision-making process, inviting visitors to interact with the artworks. Expect….what to expect?
The Brutalist Playground, RIBA Gallery, opens

Ivar Wigan: The Gods, PM/AM, PV 6-10 pm
Seedy, dangerous, but very intriguing, is the ‘reality’ as seen by Ivar Wigan. In the new work presented at PM/AM, the Scottish photographer has been documenting the street culture of New Orleans, Miami and Atlanta, revealing its less flattering sides where spectators become voyeuristic participants, whether they are pleased by the fact or not, surely Wigan was.

Gabriel Orozco, Marian Goodman Gallery, PV 6-8 pm
Book yourself an evening off and save the date, on the 12th of June Marian Goodman inaugurates a solo show by the most surprisingly conceptual of artists, Gabriel Orozco. The man that turned an empty shoebox into a work of art does not need further introduction. After the gargantuan retrospective of his work at TATE back in 2011, this is the first time that the shrewd Mexican presents new work in London.
12 Dozen Egg Cups, ArtLacuna, PV 6-9 pm
The west London artist-led space presents 144 – or 12 dozen – egg cups especially designed and made over 18 months by Alex Brady and Dave Briggs. With aesthetic and sensational nonsense that wink at Toilet Paper, the artists’ magazine created and manufactured by Maurizio Cattelan and Peirpaolo Ferrari, each piece is simply egg-cellent.
