Everyone has all eyes on London for this month, with Baftas last night and with London Fashion Week around the corner the city is bustling. Amongst it all we thought we would give you the run down of our favourite exhibitions in London when you are keen to get arty away from all the noise.
We have put together a list of our favourites that are on this month; ones full of colour and talent.
DAVID HOCKNEY | TATE BRITAIN
Hockney is one of Britain’s greatest living artists and this one will set out to show us why. It is a massive exhibition, covering all aspects of his work from Yorkshire landscapes to his famous swimming pool paintings.
EDUARDO PAOLOZZI | WHITECHAPEL GALLERY
The Godfather of Pop Art, Eduardo Paolozzi was a prolific artist – the Tottenham court Road mosaics and other sculptures all over London are testament to this. There are over 250 works in this show, showcasing his versatile range from sculptures to textiles.
FRANK BRANGWYN | WILLIAM MORRIS GALLERY
Best known for the series of murals he created for Rockefeller Centre in New York in the 1930s, the British artist Frank Brangwyn had a passion for Japanese Art. To mark the 150th anniversary of his birth the gallery will be showing a selection of his Japanese-influenced works alongside Japanese prints from the collection he amassed, not least works by Hokusai and Hiroshige.
EMBROIDERED TALES & WOVEN DREAMS | BRUNEI GALLERY
The exhibition of this extraordinary collection consists of traditionally embroidered textiles found along the Silk Road and is comprised of examples of historical embroideries from the lands of the East.
SOUTH AFRICA: THE ART OF A NATION | BRITISH MUSEUM
This exhibition tells the longest story of art any nation can claim. It draws together items from across the centuries to document South Africa’s history in a powerful visual display. It not only pays testimony to problematic periods of colonialism and apartheid, but also celebrates the many different peoples who have contributed to the nation’s accomplishments.
