Culture Available Online: Wednesday 27th May

As you are probably aware by now, here at Love London Love Culture we have a bit of an obsession with the arts. With so many venues closed at the moment, here’s a selection of some of the cultural things you can catch at the moment….

Edward Burne-Jones, Laus Veneris,1873-75, Laing Art Gallery, Newcastle Upon Tyne. (c) Tyne & Wear Archives & Museums, Bridgeman Images.

The Enchanted Interior exhibition at the Guildhall art gallery online: catch the Guildhall Art Gallery’s latest exhibition online in a video tour, guided by curator Katherine Pearce. The display explores the way women have been depicted through art over the centuries. Catch up with our review here.

Cendrillon, Royal Opera House: available to watch for a limited time only (until the 5th June), catch this charming production based on the classic fairytale Cinderella starring Joyce DiDonato and Alice Coote. Our review is available to read here.

Kimono: Kyoto to Catwalk, Victoria and Albert Museum: given that this exhibition only opened a few weeks before lockdown, the V&A have put a video tour online for this fascinating display. Divided into five episodes of roughly about seven minutes long each it is worth a watch if you didn’t get to visit it in person. LLLC’s review is available here.

The Wedding, Gecko Theatre: available to watch through Youtube for a limited time only from today until Sunday 31st May, the physical theatre company through this piece explore the complexities of human nature: love and anger, creation and destruction,community and isolation.

Wise Children, BBC iplayer: Emma Rice’s adaptation of Angela Carter’s book is currently available to watch through the BBC for the next month. So if you missed out on seeing it on stage – don’t miss it now!

BP Portrait Award Exhibition, National Portrait Gallery: its doors maybe shut, but the National Portrait Gallery is still making its art available online with visitors being able to have a look around this exhibition. Catch up with our review here.
