LONDON OUTINGS: 5 Exhibitions on right now

1 Comment

I love to plan outings to see art, illustration, design or anything that could inspire me…

Without further ado, here are 5 inspiring things going on in London right now:

  1. Henri Matisse: The Cut-Outs at Tate Modern
    Until 7th September 2014
    Matisse
    Henri Matisse – The Sheaf, 1953.

    “Matisse became a warrior in a wheelchair.” – Coomber.
    This exhibition focuses on the work Matisse did when he was battling old age and illness, when he could no longer use a paintbrush, he picked up paper and scissors. I am really fascinated by the sound of this. I’m intrigued as to what kind of “warrior” he was… and whether beauty still arose in his work, at such a challenging time.
  2. Quentin Blake – Inside Stories at House of Illustration
    Until 2nd November 2014
    Quentin Blake
    Quentin Blake at House Of Illustration.

    I really did grow up getting lost inside books of Quentin Blake’s and Roald Dahl’s fascinating worlds. Sounds like a very welcome nostalgia trip to me!
  3. Marshmallow Laser Feast – Forest at The Bloomberg Space
    Until 14th September 2014
     Forest
    Marshmallow Laser Feast – Forest, 2014.

    To be quite honest, I really am not sure what this is, yet I feel compelled to experience it! Described as a “large, interactive, musical laser installation is composed of musical ‘trees’ made of steel rods and lasers which visitors can physically tap, shake, and pluck. Interacting with the trees causes them to swing and oscillate, creating vibrating patterns of light and sound. Each tree is tuned to a specific tone, creating harmonious sounds spatialised and played in surround sound.” Ok, you’ve sold it to me, I’m in!
  4. An Idiosyncratic A to Z of the Human Condition at The Wellcome Collection
    Until 12th October 2014
    Marc Quinn
    Marc Quinn – Silvia Petretti – Sustiva, Tenofivir, 3TC (HIV), 2005. Wax & drugs.I’ve only been to The Wellcome Collection once before, to see a wonderful exhibition featuring Bobby Baker’s drawings. I’ve wanted to go back, but never saw anything that caught my eye until now… This sounds like a very interesting mix of art and medical artefacts about a subject that affects us all!
  5. Boyhood – dir. Richard Linklater at cinemas across London
    Released 11th July 2014
    Boyhood
    Ellar Coltrane in Boyhood.So, technically this is not an exhibition, this is my wildcard of the list. However, I still do consider this film a work of art.
    Linklater has taken a very courageous chance and decided to do something no-one’s ever done before… making a film with the same actors over 12 years, watching them grow. Sounds slightly odd but it actually becomes a very gripping piece of filmmaking. I won’t want to say more than that, there’s nothing worse than a spoiler. Go and see this film!
