4 Must-See London Art Exhibitions
There are so many London art exhibitions; it’s very easy to feel overwhelmed with choice and sometimes, the good ones end before you’ve got to them. I’ve written this post to round up four really intriguing exhibitions that I think you’ll really enjoy. Have a look, and make a point of heading out to see them – they’re the perfect way to colour up your life on a dry, or cloudy, rainy day.
London Art Exhibitions – OPEN NOW
1 / Ori Gersht: Floating World, Ben Brown Fine Art Gallery
Until 16th June 2016.
In this great exposition, held at the Ben Brown Fine Art Gallery, you can find expressions of Buddhist Zen temples in and around Kyoto, Japan. The theme here is the reflection of nature in water and Gersht’s purpose behind this collection of photography is to show us the calm atmosphere of these spiritual places.
Ori Gersht was born in Tel Aviv and is now based in London. He is known for his work with slow-motion capture where he creates images and video portraying fruits, flowers among other subjects.
A great place to go. Far away from all that business in London.
2 / Abstracting from Nature, Connaught Brown Gallery
Until 2nd July 2016.
In the exhibition, Abstracting from the Nature, you’ll find sculptures and paintings from artists including Barbara Hepworth, Roger Hilton and Wassily Kandinsky.
One big event, the destruction and chaos after World War II, unites the artists’ inspirations. Each of the artists looked for a new way to represent the contemporary life. The result? Reflecting the natural world in organic, abstract forms and the wonderful poetic works now seen in the Connaught Brown Gallery.
London Art Exhibitions – COMING SOON
1 / Georgia O’Keeffe at the Tate Modern
Open from 6th July to 30th October 2016.
Have you ever heard about Jimson Weed, White Flower No.1? It’s the most expensive painting by a female artist that ever sold at auction.
A new exhibition of Georgia O’Keeffe’s 100 most-important works across six decades will open in July. As part of the exposition you’ll see photographic portraits of her by her husband.
Georgia O’Keefe is known for paintings of American landscapes and for great demonstration of the similarity between flowers and the female body.
2 / Picasso Portraits
Open from from 6th October 2016 to 5th February 2017.
On October, 6th a never seen Picasso exhibition will open its doors to the public at the National Portrait Gallery. It’ll show more than 18 works from all phases of his career, not just the well-known masterpieces.
Subject of this exposition are the portraits he crafted of key people in his life; like his family, friends and lovers.
A very interesting exhibition which clearly shows the different periods of Pablo Picasso’s expressions.
Why not take a few hours to see these London art exhibitions? It’s a wonderful way to inspire yourself and open your mind. Then you will walk, even in the rain, smiling.
