Vivian Maier’s secret life as a photographer wasn’t discovered until boxes of over 100,000 negatives and undeveloped film rolls were bought at auction two years before her death. Thanks in part to the documentary film ‘Finding Vivian Maier’ about the discovery and the subsequent exhibitions of this street photographer; Maier is no longer an unknown photographic talent and joins the ranks of Brassai, Cartier-Bresson and Walker Evans.
The World Goes Pop
The pop art phenomenon entranced artists all over the world from Latin America to Asia, throughout Europe and the Middle East. Although popular culture including advertising, movies, music and packaging gave artists the impetus to create visually stimulating and engaging works that celebrated consumer culture, it also gave them the means to critique the political and social climate. This exhibition of over 200 works created between the 1960s and 1970s reveals how artists from different countries put their individual spin on pop art.
Ai Weiwei always promised to come to London to open the show himself if he ever got his passport back, and the briliant news is that he has just received his passport from the Chinese authorities. Which means, he's free to travel outside of China and will be in London for the launch of the exhibition in September.
The World of Charles and Ray Eames
You may well have sat in one of Charles and Ray Eames iconic stack chairs and if not then you’ve certainly sampled one of the thousand copies produced in their troves. The Eameses pioneering designs are known the world over and have been a guiding light for new generations of designers and certainly a go to for any interior decorator. This major retrospective focuses on their extraordinary laboratory, the Eames Office that produced more than just furniture but sought to address the demands of modern living through new approaches to architecture or arts education. Bringing together their innovative projects, we’ll be able to revisit their legacy whilst also getting tips on how best to redecorate the living room.
