What To Do This Weekend (posted 17th February 2017)
If you were wondering what to do this weekend, let us be of assistance. We've selected 10 galleries and museums, each of which have something that caught our Suna Interior Design eye!
Fear and Love at the Design Museum
Fear and Love: Reactions to a Complex World presents eleven new installations by some of the most innovative and thought-provoking designers and architects working today. #FearandLove
Josef Frank: Patterns-Furniture-Painting at the Fashion and Textile Museum
Explore the work of designer and artist Josef Frank (1885-1967) in the first-ever UK exhibition of his textiles. The Austrian-born architect moved to Sweden in 1933, where he developed his colourful brand of modernism, working with Estrid Ericson on furniture, glassware, lighting and interior design ideas. Together they redefined what is regarded as Swedish Modern. This exhibition in association with Millesgården, Stockholm highlights Frank’s vibrant fabric designs for Svenskt Tenn alongside a number of his previously unknown watercolours.
Australia's Impressionists at the National Gallery
Show casing four innovative Australian Impressionist artists, Tom Roberts, Arthur Streeton, Charles Conder, and John Russell, this exhibition explores Impressionism in an Australian context – closely related to yet entirely distinct from its European counterparts.
Robots at the Science Museum
From the dawn of mechanised human forms to cutting-edge technology fresh from the lab, Robots reveals the astonishing 500-year quest to make machines human. Focusing on why they exist rather than on how they work, our blockbuster exhibition explores the ways robots mirror humanity and the insights they offer into our ambitions, desires and position in a rapidly changing world.
Robert Adam's London at the Sir John Soane's Museum
Robert Adam had a long and enduring connection to London, establishing his practice here in 1758 and remaining in the city until his death in 1792. There is a greater density of his work in this city than anywhere else. This exhibition is the first time the architect’s work across the capital as a whole has been examined in a London museum.
David Hockney at the Tate Britain
This exhibition gathers together an extensive selection of David Hockney’s most famous works celebrating his achievements in painting, drawing, print, photography and video across six decades.
The Radical Eye: Modernist photography from the Sir Elton John Collection at the Tate Modern
This is a once-in-a-lifetime chance to see one of the world’s greatest private collections of photography, drawn from the classic modernist period of the 1920s–50s. An incredible group of Man Ray portraits are exhibited together for the first time, having been brought together by Sir Elton John over the past twenty-five years, including portraits of Matisse, Picasso, and Breton.
Reading Drawings at The Courtauld Gallery
This display examines the intriguing variety of inscriptions that can be found on drawings, from artists’ signatures to casual notes and records of ownership. Featuring works by Canaletto, Corot, Signac and others this selection reveals how such annotations can shed light on the purpose, history and use of drawings.
Undressed: A Brief History of Underwear at the V&A
Discover the evolution of underwear design from the 18th-century to the present day.
Sheer Pleasure: Frank Brangwyn and the Art of Japan at the William Morris Gallery
In 2017 we mark the 150th anniversary of the artist Frank Brangwyn RA (1867-1956). Sheer Pleasure – Frank Brangwyn and the Art of Japan examines Brangwyn's love of Japanese art and his collaborative relationships with Japanese artists and patrons. Brangwyn donated his collection of Japanese prints and paintings to the Gallery. They have rarely been displayed and the exhibition includes highlights such as woodblock prints by Utagawa Hiroshige and Katsushika Hokusai and a carefully restored decorative screen.
Have a great, cultured weekend,
