5 on Friday: 5 Exhibitions to see in London

Royal AcademyAs you may have gathered I love an exhibition, and a visit to an art gallery is one of my favourite things to do.  Living in London means I am very fortunate to have a huge array of galleries with ever changing exhibitions to visit and I try to take as much advantage of this as possible. These are five I currently have in my sights.

David Hockney RA: 82 Portraits and 1 Still Life  The Hockney landscape exhibition in 2012 remains one of my exhibition visiting highlights and probably one of the most beautiful exhibitions I have ever seen.  I love David Hockney and I’m looking forward to visiting his portraits over the summer.  It is showing at The Royal Academy, from 2nd July – 2nd October

Vogue 100: A Century of Style  I’m aware I’m running out of time for this as it finishes on the 22nd May, but it loosks fabulous and the National Portrait Gallery where it is showing is open until 9pm on Thursdays and Fridays so I hope to be able to catch it before it closes

The Experience of Colour Astrazione Oggettiva  The focus of this collection of work by a group of painters from Northern Italy is ‘colour’.  As you know I LOVE colour so this abstract collection at The Esoterick collection is very appealing.  The Esoterick collection is not somewhere I have been before but I think it warrants a trip to North London to seek it out before it finishes on the 31st July.

Dutch Flowers a FREE exhibition at the The National Gallery.  This runs until 29th August and coincides with the Chelsea and Hampton Court Flower Shows.  After the floral beauty of my recent trip to the Painting the Garden exhibition I really quite fancy this one.

Curtain Up: Celebrating 40 Years of Theatre in London and New York at the V&A museum until 31st August.  Part of the 40th anniversary of the Olivier Awards, this exhibition explore the extraordinary story of the world’s two greatest theatrical cities, London’s West End and New York’s Broadway.  It sounds like a lot of fun.  Who can resist a bit of musical theater…..

Are there any exhibitions you would recommend in London or elsewhere?

Wishing you all a picturesque weekend!
