Exhibitions In London You Should Go To This Year

CHRISTIAN DIOR: DESIGNER OF DREAMS

"There is no other country in the world, besides my own, whose way of life I like so much. I love English traditions, English politeness, English architecture. I even love English cooking." Christian Dior. The exhibition opens on Saturday, 2 February 2019 at the V&A Museum.


MARK LECKEY

Mark Leckey’s practice has addressed the radical effect of technology on popular culture and has powerfully articulated the transition from analogue to digital culture.

FRANK BOWLING

Frank Bowling’s first major retrospective celebrates an artist who constantly pushes the possibilities of paint. This exhibition offers a chance to experience the entirety of Bowling’s 60-year career. It showcases his sensual use of colour and bold experimentation.
