When the weather is as gloomy as it is today (typically as we head into June), it might be time to indulge your cultural side and visit a few of these exhibitions:
1. Botticelli Reimagined, Victoria and Albert Museum: running at the museum until the 3rd July, this exhibition is a creative exploration on the impact of Botticelli’s work on other artists and how one work can interpreted in so many ways. Remind yourself on what Love London Love Culture thought here.
2. Performing for the Camera, Tate Modern: the gallery examines how cameras have been used to capture performances – and what it really means to perform for the camera. The display features a wide range of photographs – from capturing the stars of the stage in the Victorian era all the way through to today’s selfies. Love London Love Culture’s thoughts can be read here. Last chance to see it as it closes on the 12th June!
3. In the Age of Giorgione, Royal Academy of Arts: the Royal Academy of Arts has brought together iconic paintings by masters to examine the Venetian Renaissance at the beginning of the 16th Century. A compare and contrast exhibition that really shines a light on this period as Love London Love Culture found. Last chance to see as it closes on the 5th June!
4. Russia and the Arts, National Portrait Gallery: get an extraordinary glimpse into the art and culture of Russia through portraits of some its most famous figures in this contained and focused exhibition.
