BAFTA throws open its doors to the public for its latest photography exhibition featuring knockout imagery from a vast archive. The exhibition and Q&A with the photographers is for two days only so book now.
Returning to the Business Design Centre for its 27th edition, the London Art Fair will feature works by leading Modern British and contemporary artists.
Get ready to be all shook up, London, because we're getting a taste of Graceland in this exhibition of more than 300 artefacts, some of which have never previously been exhibited outside Memphis.
This large-scale exhibition of banners in the medieval Westminster Hall commemorates 800 years of history. The 18 themes within the work take in the most significant movements and moments that have formed the rights and representation of modern day society.
The Wellcome Collection's newly expanded gallery space will open with a wink and a blush with The Institute of Sexology, an exhibition that brings together the great pioneers of the study of sex. More than 200 pieces of art, erotica, photography and ethnography will help visitors get a new perspective on perversions, lust and normality, with live events, discussions and performances to accompany the X-rated exhibits.
We don't do a lot of mending in the modern world. If the job needs anything more than a tube of superglue then we're off to Argos to buy a new one instead. This exhibition will explore the identity and potential of 'repair' through a website, publication and workshops with visiting designers and makers (Jan 12-30) who will demonstrate and teach repair skills.
For all that we're fond of our looming buildings and hectic bus lanes, we'd definitely vote for more open spaces in London if there were a way to squeeze them in. This exhibition looks at how landscape architecture can help provide solutions to urban issues such as flooding and public health, showcasing contemporary UK projects from the Olympic Park to community allotments.
In 1931, Shostakovich’s ballet 'Bolt' was banned by the Soviet authorities after its premiere. Featuring real hammers and machines, the experimental industrial production is now brought to life in this vibrant exhibition, organised in collaboration with the St Petersburg State Museum of Theatre and Music. The ballet's characters including the Komosomol Girl and the Drunkard can be re-envisioned through the original set designs and costumes.

A biggish chunk of this show of works from the Royal Photographic Society’s collection is so astounding because it is the product of artists-turned-scientists, scientists-turned-artists, self-taught geniuses and pioneering visionaries who had more in common with brave/naïve Victorian explorers than with modern ideas of what a photographer might be, or do.
Persia – now known as Iran – has been mapped extensively for centuries, and this exhibition of urban plans, topographic maps and sea charts shows how significantly cartography has advanced since the fifteenth century. The general printed maps and more specialist items often display as much skill in their artistry and design as the mapping itself.
