It has been a busy few weeks in London with lots of brand new exhibitions and theatre productions opening across the capital. Here is Love London Love Culture’s guide to the best ones to see and do.
1.Frank Auerbach, Tate Britain: the bold and unique style in which Auerbach works is certainly able to capture visitor’s attention and imagination throughout. But it can feel a bit empty and soulless in places, however if you enjoy contemporary art then you will certainly appreciate this exhibition. Read Love London Love Culture’s review here. On display until the 13th March 2016.
2. Measure For Measure, Young Vic Theatre: while initially the style of the production might be slightly bewildering, it doesn’t take long for the production to settle down and become an absorbing piece of work. There is plenty of great performances to enjoy and the production moves swiftly. Read the full review here . Performing until the 14th November.
3. The Amazing World of M.C.Escher, Dulwich Picture Gallery: this extraordinary exhibition of work really does justice to the talent of the artist from beginning to end and contains a great variety of work. If you love drawing then you really do not want to miss this exhibition. Read Love London Love Culture’s review here. On display until the 17th January 2016.
4. Giacometti: Pure Presence, National Portrait Gallery: the National Portrait Gallery focuses on an element of Giacometti’s work that hasn’t been covered in an exhibition before: his portrait work. Although his early work is stronger, those who enjoy his later work will love the opportunity to see his most familiar work in the flesh. Full review can be found here. On display to the public until the 10th January 2016.
5. Close to You: Bacharach Reimagined, Criterion Theatre: this show feels more like an intimate gig rather than a musical as there is no real plot, but that’s ok as it is a joyful celebration of music that will have you singing along as much as possible.
